According to Livingston's grandfather, the 6-foot-6 floor leader will choose between Duke, Arizona and Illinois – with the Blue Devils the clear favorite now that Roy Williams opted to take Thomas.
``Carolina's out of it," said Livingston's grandfather, who also mentioned that his grandson was not given a final chance to choose the Tar Heels after Thomas made up his mind.
``The kid (Thomas) had already committed," he added. "Shaun didn't have a chance. Roy Williams was concerned and needed a guard and didn't want to lose out on his first and second choices."
This comes a week after Livingston's father, Reggie, admitted that Duke and UNC were in a near-deadlock for his son's services. While Livingston will likely choose the Blue Devils, he also intends to take his remaining visits – to Arizona and Illinois – before making an announcement.
Livingston Now Down to Three
