Small forward Chris Livingston committed to the Kentucky Wildcats on Wednesday, making him the third five-star in the Class of 2022 to pledge to John Calipari’s program.
Livingston picked the Wildcats over Georgetown and mid-major Tennessee State.
Livingston is the #6 overall prospect in his class, per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Shooting guard Shaedon Sharpe and point guard Skyy Clark, also five-stars, previously committed to Kentucky.
Sharpe recently became the consensus #1 prospect in the class after the reclassifications of Emoni Bates and Jalen Duren to 2021 forced recruiting outlets to re-evaluate.
A native of Akron, Ohio, Livingston is playing his senior season of high school at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia. He’s listed at 6-feet-6 and 200 pounds.
Kentucky missed the NCAA Tournament last spring for the second time in Calipari’s decorated tenure. Known for recruiting high-level talent to the programs he coaches, Calipari led Kentucky to the 2012 national title but last reached the Final Four in 2015.
