Kentucky basketball received great news last night as five-star forward Chris Livingston committed to joining the ‘Cats. He will be coach John Calipari’s third five-star for the Class of 2022. 

The No. 8 player in the country according to Rivals, Livington is 6-foot-7 and shoots over 30% from the 3-point line, which should complement his tenacious rebounding ability. All these traits are combined with athleticism that should make him into a good two-way player for the Wildcats.

Livingston will join the No. 1 player Shaedon Sharpe in the class of 2022 and fellow five-star Skyy Clark on what should be the top class in the nation. 

Livingston made special note of Calipari’s down-to-earth attitude which has helped attract many other highly recruited players. He also complimented the passion of the fan base.

Livingston plays at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia (former home of Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, and Rajon Rondo).
