Head Coach John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats have landed 2022 top ten recruit and top three small forward Chris Livingston. The Wildcats continue to add “one and done” talent to reload each year. Last year was not an ideal season for the program, but that has not discouraged the five-star talent from committing. Calipari has continued to prove he is one of the best options when it comes to making it to the NBA.
Five-star Chris Livingston becomes the third five-star senior to commit to Kentucky, giving the Wildcats the lead for the No. 1 class.
“The history of the school and basketball program attracted me … They have the strongest fans in college basketball,” he told @PaulBiancardi.

John Calipari has his recruiting swagger back. Got No. 1 player Shaedon Sharpe last week, today lands Top 10 Chris Livingston.
Big Blue Nation will be loaded with high-end young talent next season.

Livingston is ranked as the 6th overall recruit and the second overall small forward in the 2022 recruiting class. He will be joining two other five-star recruits at Kentucky in the class. Number one overall recruit and shooting guard Shaedon Sharpe and top 20 recruit and top three-point guard Skyy Clark will also be at Kentucky next year. This is a loaded class for the Wildcats already with more names in the mix to join the Kentucky Wildcats.

Livingston should be an immediate impact player for the Wildcats next year. After that, he will almost certainly enter the 2023 NBA Draft. John Calipari is building yet another loaded class for the Wildcats.
