from Newnan, Georgia told TigerNet that he committed to Clemson on Wednesday morning. His final two schools were instate programs - Clemson and South Carolina.

Skalski took part in Clemson's Elite Junior Day and spent plenty of time with Brent Venables and Dabo Swinney.

TigerNet spoke to Skalski about the Clemson and Clemson coach Brent Venables. "I really want to be part of that group (Clemson LB's)," Skalski told TigerNet. "Coach Venables turns guys into great players and I want to be part of that. He's intense. Every aspect of everything he asks his players to do, there is always a certain level of intensity and I like that a lot."

As a junior, he had 78 tackles and three sacks despite limited to 7 games with a thumb injury and was named to the All-County team for his efforts.

He has offers from Clemson, Louisville, Marshall, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, UCF and Wake Forest.

Skalski is the 6th commitment for the class of 2016 and joins Cornell Powell as the second 2016 commitment for the Tigers on Signing Day.
