2013 College Football Recruiting: Razorbacks Drop Skinner from Commitment List

On Sunday the Arkansas Razorbacks verbally committed list shrank by one when Deondre Skinner was taken off the list.

Skinner, 6’3”, 220 pounds, from Patterson High School in Patterson, Louisiana, was the second verbally committed player to the Hogs 2013 class committing in early May of 2012.

The former Razorback coaching staff took notice of Skinner watching him compete against other top talent during the Arkansas junior-senior camp in the summer of 2011.

Ranked as the No. 15 overall tight end in the nation by Rivals, Skinner reportedly has offers from LSU, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, and Arizona State among others.

Rivals and 247Sports ranks Skinner as a 3-star recruit but 247Sports does not rate the Louisiana prospect as highly among the nation’s best tight ends, seeing him as the No. 27 prospect at the tight end position.

Speculation has Skinner heading to the University of Houston.

The Razorback commitment list under Bielema has taken new form with a couple of former prospects now heading elsewhere. Arkansas now has 13 players on their commitment list, with five junior college players having already signed their letter of intent, with five weeks left until National Signing Day.

The Hogs do not have extra scholarships to give that would count towards the 2012 class.
