Kentucky is no longer actively recruiting wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis, according to a report from SEC Country.
Jacques-Louis, a Florida native and Pitt target, originally committed to Kentucky in April, but after receiving offers from Louisville, Michigan State, Tennessee, Pitt and Michigan in May, de-committed from the Wildcats in June.
In August, he committed to Tennessee, but then de-committed on November 12 after Volunteers head coach Butch Jones was hired.
On December 12, Jacques-Louis announced that his top three choices were Pitt, along with Kentucky and Tennessee.

With Kentucky seemingly out of the picture now, it could be a two-school race between Pitt and the new Tennessee coaching staff under Jeremy Pruitt and offensive coordinator Tyson Helton, who came to the school from USC.
Jacques-Louis visited Pitt on Dec. 1 and told Pittsburgh Sports Now afterward that he enjoyed the experience.
“I definitely feel like a priority for them as a possible future receiver for them by the way they’re recruiting me,” he said.
Pitt is also still recruiting fellow Florida wide receiver Jeshaun Jones after missing out on George wideout Jatavious Harris on Tuesday, who committed to Louisville.
Jacques-Louis is expected to announce his decision on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
