High Energy OH Forward Visits Miami
The hard work and coaching advice paid off this year as Skelly averaged an impressive 15 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists per game in his junior campaign. Since then, his recruitment has taken off and the Ohio native now holds over 15 offers from conferences such as the MAC and the Patriot League. As the AAU circuit winds down over the next month, Skelly has planned visits across the Midwest, the Northeast and the South. He anticipates receiving some high major conference offers after his campus tours.
Having visited seven schools already, Skelly is very excited about his recruitment. "They are all awesome. I am really fortunate to have so many great schools interested in me," he told RedHawk Insider. While he won't narrow down his early leaders until after his summer visits, Skelly has enjoyed his two trips to Miami. "I really loved Oxford. It was a good fit that really reminded me of Westlake," he told us. The junior hopes to study International Business and mentioned the newly built Farmer School of Business. Additionally, in a comment that has become a theme among many 2014 recruits, he said "The players were amazing, but I really love the coaching staff. We are definitely making bonds."
For now, though, college recruitment will wait for Skelly as he finishes out his AAU season and spends his free time going through college level workouts with his older brother. After his visits over the next few months, he will narrow his list and has the intention of committing by September 1st. Why so early? The impressive young man told RedHawk Insider, "Out of respect for the great schools that I don't choose, I want them to have time to find other players." That classy attitude and on-court dominance has vaulted Skelly to the top of the Miami staff's wishlist of 2014 big men.
