Robert Livingston knows a thing or two about Clemson football, after all his dad was a teammate of assistant coach and former Clemson quarterback Mike O'Cain.

Having that family connection to the Tigers' football program could eventually pave the way for Livingston to sign with Clemson in 2004. Right now, Clemson, Wake Forest, North Carolina, N.C. State, and Duke sit in Livingston's top 5.

"At this time Clemson is my favorite followed by North Carolina, N.C. State, Wake Forest, Duke, South Carolina, and Colorado," said Livingston.

"I am close to getting offered by Clemson (hopefully), Duke, UNC, N.C. State, and Wake Forest. All of them really want me to come to camp so they can see me run, cover and really just see me play. I say hopefully about Clemson because they are my favorite and I really want them to offer."

"I am getting ready to go to Clemson's camp (Sunday- Monday) and hopefully if I do well I will come away feeling good about my chances," adds the rising senior.

Last season Livingston registered 112 tackles, 3 interceptions, 8 pass break ups, and 2 fumble recoveries playing from his strong safety spot.

"My strength on the field is that I am a competitor and play 100% on every play. My weakness maybe man to man coverage because my high school plays a lot of zone coverage so my zone is the flats, but I have been working on that a lot and after both the Nike Camp and the Shrine Bowl Combine I feel like I can hang with anybody coverage wise."

Livingston is also a force on offense, spending time at quarterback and at wide receiver last season.

Robert recorded all-conference honors in each of the last two seasons in football, and he also excels in track. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding safety prospect, right up through signing day 2004.
