With the dead period over, Kentucky’s recruiting calendar is filling up fast with official visits. According to Tipton Edits, five-star forward and top five 2022 prospect Chris Livingston will be in Lexington the weekend of June 18-20. The 6’6″ 200 lbs. Akron, Ohio native will visit Kansas this weekend.
Livingston is the No. 4 recruit in the 2022 class, per 247 Sports Composite. He received an offer from John Calipari last month. So far, he also holds offers from Kansas, North Carolina, Memphis, Ohio State, Florida, LSU, UAB, Akron, and Tennessee State. Here’s what 247 Sports Director of Scouting Jerry Meyer had to say about his game back in November:
Tremendous physical build for a wing. Has explosive athleticism and can make plays in traffic. Loves to attack the rim. Has a powerful spin move to finish off drives. Shoots it well enough from deep but an area for improvement. Handles well in space but needs to tighten and refine his handle. Can deliver a pass on the move. Active player who comes up with balls off the glass and the floor. Has great potential as a multi positional defender.
Livingston will visit Kentucky the same weekend as five-star center Dereck Lively II. Skyy Clark, Kentucky’s lone 2022 commit, will be on campus this weekend. Superstar forward Jalen Duren and five-star shooting guard Keyonte George will come to town the final week of June. We’ve said it plenty of times, but it’s a big, big month!
