According to multiple reports, including one from Scout Director of Basketball Recruiting Evan Daniels, former Arkansas State forward Anthony Livingston is transferring to Texas Tech.
As a graduate transfer, Livingston will be able to play next season without having to sit out. He has one year of eligibility remaining.
The 6-foot-8, 230-pound power forward averaged 15.4 points and 9.4 rebounds for Arkansas State last season after putting up 15.9 points and 10 rebounds a game in 2014-15. Livingston, who is originally out of Washington D.C., also played a season of junior college ball at San Jacinto College in Pasadena (Tex.) in 2013-14 where he averaged 16.9 points and 9.9 rebounds.
Livingston is the third player Chris Beard has added since accepting the head coaching gig in mid-April and will be the fourth new addition to a Red Raider squad coming off a NCAA tournament berth. Beard also added a pair of junior college standouts in All-American wing Niem Stevenson and journeyman guard Shadell Millinghaus.
Livingston provides Beard with another versatile big who is capable of scoring on the block, stepping out and knocking down the occasional 3-pointer and putting the ball on the floor and driving to the rim. He's also a proven rebounder, which is an area the Red Raiders struggled at times last season.
