Livingston to Kentucky now seems highly likely.

The Memphis Tigers have halted their recruitment of 2022 5-star small forward Chris Livingston, according to Joe Tipton.

This report surfaces after Livingston told insiders that he would be taking a second official visit to Kentucky on Oct. 9, just a week before Big Blue Madness and six days before Livingston’s scheduled commitment date on Oct. 15.

When there is smoke, there is fire. The momentum for Livingston to Kentucky has been growing and growing over the past week, with the Kentucky coaching staff going all-hands-on-deck for Livingston earlier today.

According to Jacob Polacheck, Memphis was never seemed to go “all-in” for Livingston, and a decision could be made before his Oct. 15 commitment date.

Oh, and recruiting expert Andrew Slater said this recruitment is already finished.

With Memphis no longer in the running, Kentucky certainly seems to be the choice for Livingston.

It seems that John Calipari and his new Kentucky Wildcats coaching staff could have the bulk of their 2022 class wrapped up by the early signing period.

Go Cayts.
