On Thursday, four-star wing Daniel Skillings committed to Cincinnati over Pitt, NC State, and a few others.
“I’m going to Cincinnati,” Skillings told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “Cincinnati separated themselves from others, from how much support they gave me, how the whole coaching staff was there, showing how they prioritized me in a huge way! Program was different then others in good ways too! This commitment means the world to me and my father and family! And coach. My coach/trainer, I came from nothing and worked my ass off to make it here! This moment is very special to me. I feel so confident on committing. And I’m ready to give the Bearcats My all!”

Skillings was one of Pitt’s priority targets towards the end of the summer, ever since Pitt offered him on Aug. 17. After he picked up the offer, Skillings included the Panthers in his top ten, then his top five, and eventually took an official visit to Pitt. However, in the end, he found his home at Cincinnati.
