Skinner, who plays prep soccer for IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, is a 4-star contender and the best tight end in the 2022 class in the compound Ranking of 247Sports. He has been sought after by several of the best college programs in the country, including Texas, Clemson, Florida, and Florida State.

« I’ve been thinking long and hard about what will best prepare me for the next level, and in Alabama you get pushed hard on and off the field every day, « said Skinner Andrew Ivins of 247Sports.

Skinner is another recruiting coup for Alabama head coach Nick Saban. His commitment will bring the Crimson Tide class to number 1 in the country again in 2022, according to 247Sports. Skinner is the second 4-star tight-end to promise a future for Alabama, after Elijah Brown, who plays at Wayne High School in Dayton, Ohio.

According to Ivins, Skinner has big considerations early on in the recruiting process Florida and Florida State employed, but meeting Saban helped him dedicate his future to Tuscaloosa.

« Coach Saban was a big part of that because he and I talked a lot, » Skinner said. « Sometimes we just talked about life outside of football. He asked about my family and how my sisters were doing. I really noticed that, just a connection to coach Saban. »

Ivins calls Skinner a « walking mismatch » with a « monster capture radius » and a strong ability to get downfield. In Alabama, he’ll join a football juggernaut that is showing no signs of slowing down. The Crimson Tide have won six national championships since 2009 and are # 1 on the AP Top 25. With another top recruiting class on the way, Alabama seems poised to continue to dominate college football.
