Four-Star Wide Receiver commits to Cincinnati

Cincinnati picked up their second commitment of the day, and highest rated commit of the 2025 class, with the commitment of Riverside (Greer, SC) wide receiver Mikkel Skinner.

Skinner, who chose the Bearcats over an offer list that also included Ohio State, Coastal Carolina, and West Virginia, among others, visited UC the weekend of May 31st - June 2nd and had previously visited unofficially as well to check out the program and campus.

Utilized in multiple ways within his high school's offense, Skinner is a big-bodied receiver who plays with a physical edge. On film, the Greer standout shows an ability to be used out of the backfield as a running back and also has the speed and athleticism to make plays down the field. At 6-foot-3, he has the frame to put on weight and potentially grow in to a receiving tight end later in his career. 



Skinner finished his junior season with 651 receiving yards on 44 receptions and 588 rushing yards on 68 carries. With 1,459 all-purpose yards, Skinner also had 15 touchdowns on the year. 

Tight ends coach Josh Stepp and his South Carolina ties were a contributing factor to Cincinnati landing the third best player in the Palmetto State.

Skinner is the second wide receiver commit of the 2025 class, joining Kamaurri Smith (Dayton, OH). The Bearcats are now ranked 27th nationally in the 247sports team rankings.
