The Kentucky Wildcats extended an offer to one of the top prospects in the 2022 class late Tuesday night.

Chris Livingston, a talented wing out of Akron (OH), is ranked as the No. 4 player in the 2022 class by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, and he received an offer from the Wildcats last night.

Livingston comes in at 6’6 and about 200 pounds, and he’s an exceptional athlete also viewed as one of the top scorers in his class with the ability to beat his defender off the dribble, get to the rim, and finish through contact.

John Calipari also loves players that can defend multiple positions, and that’s another area Livingston fits the bill.

Here’s what 247’s Jerry Meyer had to say about Livingston last year.

“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.”

Memphis seems to be the leader for Livingston as of now, as he has two Rivals picks for the Tigers, but he’s also now picked up offers from Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina this month, so we’ll see if that changes anything moving forward.
