Dan Skipper talking playoffs, not Vols 

November, 19, 2012
Even with the firing of coach Derek Dooley, three-star Tennessee commit Dan Skipper (Arvada, Colo./Ralston Valley) isn’t worried about his college plans.

At least not yet.

Skipper, a 6-foot-10, 295-pound offensive tackle and the No. 4 recruit from the state of Colorado, said he is putting all Tennessee discussions in a secondary category for as long as his team is still in the playoffs. Ralston Valley will face Cherokee Trail (Aurora, Colo.) in a Colorado Class 5A state semifinal Saturday afternoon.
