"I haven't met the new coach yet," said Livingston of the newly hired Bruce Webber at Illinois. "I need to talk to him. I really didn't watch SIU much, but know about them from the Tournament."
Livingston says he will visit Florida at the end of May and may visit Arizona for Midnight Madness.
He's had meetings with Lute Olson, Billy Donovan and Self and has not set a timetable to make a decision.
"He calls and we talk, we get along pretty well," Livingston said. "He's from Springfield and I'm from Peoria, so we played a couple of times. I know him and he knows me. He's another Illinois guy."
Not only has Livingston been playing better, but he looks better. It is obvious he has gained confidence and has bulked up just a bit. He's now just a hair under 6-7, but knows he needs more work in the weight room.
"Some people just don't have the body type to add bulk," Livingston confessed. "I'm just working hard in the weight room and taking protein powder to try and get bigger.
