After a long time of being told to keep waiting for the offer, Utah's coaching staff finally came through with one in May and Sandy (Utah) Alta's Austin Lee committed on the same day.
In his case, there really wasn't a whole lot to think about.
He had always wanted to play for the Utes so once they offered the three-star safety didn't have much more to consider in his recruitment. Lee had an offer from his dream school and he was not going to miss out on that opportunity.

"Everything is perfect between us," Lee said last weekend at the Mission Viejo Kickoff Classic.
"I committed the day I got the offer. I always knew I wanted to go to Utah, it was close to home, I love the coaches and they're going to be a high-caliber team in the Pac-12 so that's going to be awesome."
Everything seemed to be perfect between the two. Lee, rated as the No. 35 safety in the 2012 class and the No. 7 prospect in the Utah state rankings by Rivals.com, said he especially loves the coaching staff.
There are a bunch of other good things he sees with the Utes as well and that's another reason why he's so excited about his future.
"I just clicked with the coaches," Lee said. "They were so nice the whole time. I felt like I fit in with them.
"They have a variety of religions, races, everything and everybody fits in there. I love the facility and they're going to extend the coaches offices and playing in the Pac-12 is going to be great."
Lee, a 6-foot, 185-pound prospect who also had an offer from Utah State along with interest from many other schools, said his only official visit will be to Utah but he doesn't plan to take it until after his senior season.
