Chris Livingston, a 6-foot-6 small forward out of Akron (Ohio) Oak Hill Academy will announce his college decision this Wednesday, Sept. 15, sources told On3.

Livingston is considering Kentucky, Georgetown, and Tennessee State. He’s taken official visits to all.

Memphis and Livingston cut ties late last week. The original plan for Livingston was to take an unofficial visit to Memphis on Sept. 24-25 and then announce his commitment on his birthday, Oct. 15.

Additionally, Livingston told On3 last month he would also consider the NBA G-League. The chances of that happening are extremely slim and it appears Livingston will almost certainly choose the college route.

How does Kentucky’s chances look with Livingston?

Well, to be frank, they look good. It’s no secret that Kentucky is the heavy favorite for Livingston. Last week, Kentucky brought in its full staff to see Livingston on the first day of the recruiting live period.

Furthermore, Livingston told On3 last week that would take a second official visit to Kentucky on Oct. 9. It hasn’t been confirmed whether or not that visit will still take place, considering his commitment is only two days away.

In addition, On3 spoke to Chris Livingston in a previous interview to get his thoughts on the Kentucky Wildcats.
