Tight end Deondre Skinner from Patterson (La.) High School needed very little time to consider his scholarship offer from Arkansas.
Skinner gave a quick commitment to Arkansas defensive line coach Steve Caldwell when he called on Thursday.
“My coach told me I was supposed to call Coach Caldwell when I got home and I did,” Skinner told 247Sports. “He asked me if I was ready to commit. I said, ‘What do you mean?’ He told me coach (John L.) Smith wanted to offer me a scholarship and I committed on the spot.”
Skinner is the second prospect to commit to Arkansas’ class of 2013. The other is running back Kaleb Blanchard from Denham Springs (La.) High School.
Skinner chose Arkansas over offers from Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Louisiana-Lafayette.
