6.13.17 - Drafted in the 7th round out of TCU by the Chicago White Sox. 

5/6/14 - Ranked No. 3 in Illinois’ 2014 class, No. 5 overall. Texas Christian recruit. Draft interest is seemingly picking up steam, as there were a handful of higher-ups in attendance. … Skoug should put me on his payroll, because over the course of two years in the spring, summer and fall, Skoug is hitting like .800 when I am in attendance. His bat, however, is no fluke. In 10 years scouting in Illinois, he very well may be the best left-handed bat I’ve seen in Illinois. He has advanced plate discipline, power to all fields, has an explosive yet controlled swing with no excess moving parts. And he never gets cheated in the box. In two games against Mundelein, he went 4-for-5 with two walks. In the first game, he went 3-for-3 with an opposite-field homer into the teeth of the wind. He also hit a homer on Wednesday to centerfield, but it was waived off because the pitcher was called for a balk.
2/2/14 - Skoug is widely considered one of the top, if not the best, left-handed hitter in the Midwest. He solidified his status as one of the nation’s top hitters over the fall when he earned MVP honors in Jupiter. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder put the final punctuation on his national ascension at the Super 60. Among a crowded field of top-level hitters, Skoug once again stood out with his bat. He’s remarkably balanced for how hard he swings; his bat path is level and stays flat through the zone; and, above all, he smashes everything everything thrown his way, showing natural power to all fields. He registered 98 mph exit velocity, tying the event-high at the Super 60. Skoug has proved his offensive prowess everywhere he’s gone, including earning first-team All-State as a junior last spring. Defensively, he registered pop times between 1.93-2.08 while recording 78 mph from the crouch. Although his throws don’t have the same natural carry as some of the other top-level catchers, he’s a highly accurate thrower. The TCU recruit also ran an impressive 7.15 60.
6/4/13 - TCU commit. Ranked No. 22 in Illinois Class of 2013, No. 93 overall. Solid defensively, showed 2.1 pop times. Frame shows strength at 5-11, 205 pounds.  Hits from a slightly open stance, athletic setup. Shows good balance at the plate with advanced bat speed, shows extension. Skoug took a number of quality at-bats with a homerun in the game.

Shows advanced plate approach with left-handed power potential. Uses aggressive lower half to generate solid bat speed through zone. Quick and quiet to baseball and stays through ball well.
