Dominic Livingston, 2018 DT, Aldine (Texas) Davis
Size: 6-3, 350
Recruiting: Livingston committed Dec. 5 to Texas A&M. He also holds offers from Indiana, Kansas State, Minnesota, Colorado State, SMU, and Tulsa.
Rankings: Scout ranks Livingston as the No. 5 defensive tackle in the state of Texas' 2018 class, as well as the No. 34 DT nationally for his class.
With massive size and good pad level, Dominic Livingston is a prototype nose tackle prospect who regularly disrupts the opponent's run game. Huge player in the 6-foot-3, 350+ range entering his senior year of high school. Impressive burst off the ball for such an enormous interior defender. Good strength to fight through blockers, sometimes multiple, to disrupt plays.
Good tackler who can deliver the big hit if he comes free into the backfield, but also consistently wraps up, especially when making stops in traffic. Improved technique and balance, especially when engaged, will make him that much more formidable, especially as an inside pocket-collapser in passing situations. Size likely limits scheme-versatility and position-flexibility.
Overall, Livingston is likely a Power Five-caliber nose tackle prospect with college-ready size who will be a bull in the middle of a defense when he combines his natural size and strength with a college weight-training program. -- Gabe Brooks
