Buchtel Star Chris Livingston Transfers
It’s being reported by Akron Beacon Journal Micheal Beaven that twin brothers out of Akron, Ohio Chris Livingston and Cordell Livingston are transferring to Western Reserve Academy in Hudson.
Chris Livingston is a 6-6, 187-pound Sophomore Shooting Guard from Akron, OH a standout guard ranked top 10 in the nation 3rd in ESPN top 25. Livingston who won a gold medal this past summer in the under 16 championships walking away with MVP honors. He is one of the bigger and more physical guards in his class. A physical and hard-driving guard who loves to get to the rim he finishes with superior strength and athleticism. His outside shot does need some work, but it isn’t broken by any stretch. He is already a solid mid-range jump shooter. Has tremendous defensive potential as well, and a solid feel for the game. His production is that of a much older and more experienced player, but there still remains major potential for growth as he refines his shot and decision making (via 247 sports). The Livingston’s were attending STEM High School and playing basketball at Buchtel.
