The biggest performance for any Texas commit this weekend came courtesy of four-star 2024 Lucas (TX) Lovejoy wide receiver pledge Parker Livingstone. The lengthy 6-foot-4 boundary receiver made big play after big play for Lovejoy on offense and special teams in their 50-37 win over College Station on Aug. 26.


If not for having a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown called back for a flag, Livingstone would’ve finished this game with over 400 all-purpose yards and five total touchdowns. Despite the called-back kickoff return for a touchdown, Livingstone was scorching hot for Lovejoy this weekend.

Livingstone reeled in a dozen receptions for a whopping 252 receiving yards and three touchdown catches. He also threw a 52-yard touchdown pass.

Livingstone was making plays lined up as a boundary receiver, out of the slot, and as the motion target last night.

One of Livingstone’s best plays on a night full of highlights for the blue-chip wideout was a crazy one-handed catch he made on the sidelines that set Lovejoy’s offense up near the red zone.

Overall, Livingstone proved in season opener performance for Lovejoy that he’s setting up to have a huge season this fall. If this is the version of Livingstone Texas is getting, he’s way undervalued as a low-four-star (and even a three-star prospect according to On3 and the Top247) recruit in the 2024 class.

Texas looks to be getting an absolute steal in Livingstone in the 2024 class at boundary receiver.
