Ugonna Kingsley will announce his college choice Monday at 2 pm ET, according to 247 Sports.

Kingsley is listing four finalists: The Kentucky Wildcats, Tennessee Volunteers, Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys.

As of Saturday afternoon, Kentucky holds every prediction at 247 Sports, Rivals and On3.

In addition to being ranked No. 39 overall by 247 Sports in 2022 following his reclassification, Kingsley checked in at No. 35 at ESPN and Rivals, while On3 has him at No. 18.

With a commitment, Kentucky’s 2022 class would jump to No. 3 overall in the 247 Sports team rankings with a 68.49 score.

Ugonna Kingsley has become a popular name across the Big Blue Nation over the last several months, as reports have swirled about his reclassification and interest in the Kentucky Wildcats.

Well, earlier this month the first part of that equation came true, as Kingsley decided to reclassify to 2022 and be on a college campus in a few short weeks. The second part is also trending in the right direction, as the Cats are the heavy favorite heading into a commitment in the coming days.

After being a top player in his original class of 2023, the talented big man has now received his updated ranking from 247 Sports. In their latest update, Kingsley is slotted as a 4-star prospect and the No. 39 player in the class. They also list him as a top-10 center.

Coming off of an official visit to Lexington this past week, it seems that UK fans can expect to see Kingsley on the team this season. Also coming off an official visit to Oklahoma, Kingsley told Joe Tipton of On3 on Monday night he will be announcing his commitment on August 1st.

This updated ranking also featured GG Jackson after his reclassification announcement and commitment to South Carolina over the weekend. Jackson comes in as the No. 6 player in the class and is ranked right behind Cason Wallace in the class. Jackson and the Gamecocks will travel to Rupp Arena this season.
