Skipper enjoys CSU Junior Day

Arvada (Colo.) Ralston Valley three-star standout Dan Skipper has received a lot of national attention of late due to his immense size at over 6-foot-10, 280 pounds. But the talented line prospect has the physical tools and skills to boot that have garnered him an extensive list of offers.

"Colorado, Colorado State, Vanderbilt, Duke, Arizona State, Wyoming, Utah, Oregon State, Washington State, and Mizzou have all offered," Skipper said.

Colorado State was fortunate enough to have Skipper in attendance for their first scheduled Junior Day on March 24th.

"It was good. We met with some of the players that were there and the coaches, and then we toured the facilities. I talked with Coach Mac at the end as well as (offensive line) Coach Frazier."

The Rams first offered Skipper a scholarship about a month ago and have maintained contact with the in-state lineman through head coach Jim McElwain and assistants Derek Frazier and Marty English.

While he boasts an extensive list that includes some big offers, Skipper is maintaining a level attitude and is taking the entire recruiting process in stride.

"I don't have any favorites right now. I'm keeping everything pretty open."

On top of attending CSU's Junior Day this past weekend, He has also visited Oklahoma, Colorado, and Arizona State. He will be back in Tempe to take in an ASU spring practice today.

When it comes time to narrow down his list and select a college, Skipper knows what he will be looking for.

"I want to play at a place that has a great game day atmosphere and where I can get a top flight education. I also want to play for someone that can get me to the next level."

Skipper has yet to set a time table on a decision, but said the Rams have a fair shot like all the other schools.

"I'm interested in CSU. They're still in it."
