"It's still awesome,'' he said. "It is nice to know that someone wants you."
At 6-foot-9, Skelly's skillful game has attracted a lot of schools, most recently Arkansas State.
"I don't know a lot about them,'' he said. "But I have checked the school out on-line and my dad told me about coach (John) Brady.
"I think it is a school where I might like to take a visit."
Skelly said a lot of his offers are from Mid-America Conference schools with some from The Horizon and schools in the upper Midwest near his home. He said he has heard from Northwestern and Stanford.
"ASU is a place I would have to take an official visit to because it is not as close at the others,'' he said.
"They had been talking to me a couple of weeks and they came up and offered me at the AAU tourney in Indianapolis.
He said he thinks he might grow some more and top out at 6-11.
"That would be nice,'' Skelly said. "I was 6-5 in the ninth grade and I have grown a couple inches each year since then so I hope to keep growing.
"Since I am tall I like playing close to the basket. It is a lot easier to score. But I can do both. I can go out and play the 3 and 4 spots. But I prefer to have the ball with my back to the basket."
Last season he averaged 15 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks a game.
"I definitely plan on making my decision before the season starts and signing early,'' he said.
The early signing date is November 14.
