“They were the first team to get in touch with me and they really made it clear that they wanted me on the team,” said Skinner, who is from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. “It’s (also) in my hometown. This meant that not only could I stay at home, but I would have year-round access to the facilities and other teammates and staff in the city.”

The Huskies have been busy this recruiting season. With a crop of rookies coming in, the team’s median age will be younger than ever. “I’m really excited to be joining such a young team. These guys were really close in a lot of games and will only improve with experience. I’m really excited to join a team on the rise and hope to contribute to the success,” Skinner said.

Skinner was wooed by the coaching staff, who he said played a major role in his decision to commit. He was impressed by the staff’s experience at the university and CFL level. “The staff has been around numerous championships and have played at the highest level,” Skinner said. “I trust these coaches to make the most of my potential.

Standing at 6’0, 175lbs, the defensive back spent his high school career with the St. Joseph Guardians (Saskatoon Secondary Schools Athletic Directorate). The future kinesiology student was listed in Football Saskatchewan’s Top 100 in 2016 and 2017.

Already feeling the school spirit, Skinner ended the interview with a simple, “Go Huskies!”
