Livingstone is the other blue-chip target of the Longhorns 2024 class that is committing on July 1. The 6-foot-4 and 175-pound boundary receiver out of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has long been considered a Texas lean.

Suppose there was any doubt that the Longhorns were leading this recruitment ahead of Livingstone’s July 1 decision date, that was quieted as he had a tremendous official visit to Austin last weekend. Livingstone has great relationships with the coaches and some of the commitments in the Longhorns 2024 class, namely four-star Cypress (TX) Cy-fair quarterback pledge Trey Owens.

There are more than a dozen forecasts among the major recruiting services (Rivals, On3, and 247Sports), all projecting Livingstone’s commitment to Texas.

All signs point to Livingstone being the second wide receiver to commit to the Longhorns 2024 class after four-star Spring Branch (TX) Smithson Valley product Freddie Dubose Jr. hopped in on June 18.

Assuming Texas hauls in a commitment from Livingstone on July 1, the attention turns to putting the full-court press on the elite five-star St. Louis University (MO) wide receiver priority Ryan Wingo. It just so happens that Texas received a crystal ball prediction from 247Sports national recruiting director Steve Wiltfong on June 29, projecting Wingos’s commitment to the Longhorns.
