The Oklahoma pipeline to Lawrence, Kansas is only getting stronger. Claremore 2020 wide receiver and defensive back Quentin Skinner announced on Monday that he has committed to the Jayhawks. Skinner is the fifth prospect in Oklahoma’s 2020 class to commit to Kansas.
Skinner is also the second Oklahoma 2020 prospect to commit in the last two days. Bishop Kelley WR/DB Cori Lewis committed to Army on Sunday. Unfortunately, Skinner and Lewis have another thing in common, other than committing in the last 48 hours. Skinner’s senior season ended early due to a knee injury. Lewis is in the same boat after further injuring a torn ACL in a game on Thursday night.
Despite the injury, Skinner was still one of the top remaining prospects that has yet to commit. Skinner has great size at 6’4 and has had a major impact on both sides of the ball for Claremore. While his more natural position might be on the offensive side of the ball, Skinner is a ball hawk on defense. Skinner burst onto the scene as a sophomore when he had eight interceptions. Teams started to avoid throwing the ball Skinner’s way.
Skinner’s dad Reggie was a running back for Oklahoma in the late nineties. He’s also been around plenty of talented players at Claremore and with a travel 7v7 team called Sooner 7. Skinner’s teammate Jace Hightower is a running back commit to Air Force. Skinner was teammates with some of the best players in the state with the Sooner 7 the last two offseasons.
One of those teammates was Owasso 2020 DB Deuce Mayberry, who happens to also be committed to Kansas. In addition to Mayberry, Booker T Washington linebacker Krishawn Brown, Moore QB Deuce Hishaw, Union wide receiver Kyler Pearson. Kansas first year head coach Les Miles has certainly put an emphasis on recruiting Oklahoma.
Skinner is the 35th prospect in Oklahoma’s 2020 class to commit to a D1 program.
