Jaleel Skinner, the No. 1 tight end in the Class of 2022, will play his college football at Alabama, he announced Friday.

A South Carolina native, he plays at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Skinner chose the Crimson Tide over Florida State, Texas, Miami and Clemson. He said while his parents would support whatever decision he made, he knew he didn’t want to venture too far from home.

“I want to be the best,” he said as he made his announcement via the CBS Sports website. “That’s why I’m coming to the University of Alabama.”

This is a weaker-than-usual tight end class. Skinner, a four-star-prospect, ranks as the No. 74 overall player in the class by the 247Sports composite despite being the top tight end.

The No. 3 tight end prospect in 2022, Oscar Delp of Cumming, Ga., hasn’t announced his decision yet. Georgia is believed to be the frontrunner for Delp’s commitment, though Michigan reportedly is in contention.
