Chris Livingston on adjusting to college, who's stepping up as a leader

Standing at 6’7″ 210 lbs. of mostly muscle, Chris Livingston doesn’t look like your typical college freshman. After spending a year at basketball powerhouse Oak Hill Academy, the Akron, Ohio native is as primed as he could be for the spotlight at Kentucky; however, even he admits his first month on campus has been an adjustment from high school life.

“The biggest transition I could say is the workload,” Livingston told reporters today. “I’m used to doing a lot of skill workouts, a lot of practicing. I’m a basketball player, so I’m used to playing basketball but going from lifting to practice to another skill work to getting up shots, it’s a lot on your body so you really have to learn to take care of your body, recover the right way, stretch, things like that.
