Skinner (No. 36, 2014) commits to Georgia
Thursday, August 9, 2012
Isabella Skinner has given a verbal commitment to first-year Georgia head coach Josh Brewer. Skinner, who plays for West Forsyth High School in Cumming, Ga., will join the Bulldogs' roster in the fall of 2014.
Skinner also took unofficial visits to North Carolina, Auburn and Illinois. Her decision came down to Georgia and North Carolina.
“The decision was difficult for me because all of the programs I visited were amazing,” Skinner said. “In the end, my excitement about Coach Brewer’s vision for the program, the incredible facilities at Georgia and it being close to my family help to make my decision.”
Skinner advanced to match play at the U.S. Girls’ Junior earlier this summer before falling in the first round. She won the HJGT Chateau Elan Junior Shootout and the HJGT Upstate Junior Classic earlier this year, and won last year’s AJGA Junior All-Star at Hilton Head. Skinner had two aces in the final round of the 2012 Carolinas-Georgia Junior Championship to finish second.
