Skyline football has 14 sign letters of intent
By Travis L. Brown
DALLAS -- Hidden behind the fanfare that surrounded Dallas Skyline receiver Thomas Johnson’s signing day selection of Texas A&M was one of the largest signing groups in North Texas.
Skyline football had 14 student/athletes sign national letters of intent Wednesday in front of friends and family at the high school.
The Raiders' other ESPNU 150 athlete, No. 57 Peter Jinkens, inked his pledge to play for the Texas Longhorns next year. It is the seal to a commitment Jinkens made well before the beginning of his senior season.
“I’ve been dreaming about going to Texas since I was little. It’s like a dream come true. Words can’t describe how happy I am right now.”
Jinkens will be joining a group at Texas that includes some of the area’s best talent, including No. 2 Johnathan Gray from Aledo.
Alongside Jinkens and Johnson at Skyline’s signing table was one other D1 signee, David Green, who will attend UNLV in the fall.
The remaining athletes signed with a variety of other schools, including Grambling State, Cisco Junior College, Southwestern College and Tarleton State Universtiy.
