Claremore receiver Quentin Skinner (14) lines up for a play during Friday night’s game against Sapulpa at Lantow Field. Skinner caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown while also tallying an interception and a fumble recovery.

Quentin Skinner is trading in his red zebras stripes for a set of blue wings.

The star Claremore receiver and defensive back announced his commitment to the University of Kansas via Twitter on Monday evening.

His tweet read, “I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Kansas. Thank you Coach Miles and Coach Jones for the great opportunity. Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way, including God, family, coaches, teammates and friends. I would not be where I am today without all of you. With that being said, I am COMMITTED!”

The announcement comes less than two weeks after the 6-foot-2, 160-pound athlete suffered a season-ending knee injury against Collinsville on Sept. 27.

Through four games, Skinner caught 10 passes for 171 yards and three touchdowns.

He closes out his career as a Zebra with 759 yards receiving and nine touchdowns while tallying 56 tackles and 11 interceptions on defense.

Skinner is the fifth Oklahoma high school football prospect from the 2020 class to commit to the Jayhawks, joining Daniel Hishaw Jr. (Moore), Duece Mayberry Jr. (Owasso), Kyler Pearson (Tulsa Union) and Krishawn Brown (Booker T. Washington).

Skinner also joins teammate and star running back Jace Hightower as Claremore’s second Division I commit. Hightower committed to Air Force earlier this summer.

There are now three Division I football commits in Rogers County, including Austin Woods, who is headed to Arkansas State next season.
