Livingston is currently ranked as the No. 5 overall player in the class and is the No. 2 overall small forward via 247 Sports Composite.
The 6-6 wing from Akron, Ohio recently visited Kentucky back on June 11th through the 13th. He had nothing but positive things to say of that visit in an interview with Jacob Polacheck of Zagsblog.com.
“Coach Cal is a great guy. He’s really personable, considering how much of a legend he is and how big his status is in the basketball community and the world. He’s down to earth, easy to talk to, funny and cool. I like him. The coaching staff was nice and welcomed my family.”
There are currently four Rivals FutureCast predictions in favor of Memphis to land Livingston.

Kid is an absolute stud. Says he’s still looking at Texas, Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Kentucky.@Keyontekg1 likes the D’Angelo Russell comparison. I think he’s also got some Donovan Mitchell in him. Big-time scorer who also has great feel. pic.twitter.com/xBl0oLBPai
Keyonte George is currently ranked as the No. 4 overall player in the class and is the No. 1 overall shooting guard according to 247 Sports Composite.
The 6-foot-4 guard has been high on Kentucky’s radar. However, there have been recruiting analyst that believe Texas is the current leader to land George.
As of right now, Texas holds 100% of the 247 Crystal Ball predictions for George, so it will be interesting to see if Kentucky can pull off a recruiting upset over the course of the coming months. The last five Rivals FutureCast picks have been in favor of Texas to land George.
Check out some highlights of the two in action.
