Austin Heder has plenty of time to consider other schools and weight his options, but he's certain he won't need it.
The Pleasant Grove, Utah, linebacker had one scholarship offer, and he took it.
"I committed to BYU last Tuesday," Heder said. "It's always been my dream to go to BYU. I've gone to every single one of their games since I was a little kid. I wouldn't play anywhere else."
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound inside linebacker will be a junior this fall and is the Cougars' second commit for its 2011 class, joining South Jordan, Utah, linebacker Baker Pritchard.
Heder attended BYU's four-day camp that started on June 15. On the final day of the camp, he was called into head coach Bronco Mendenhall's office.
Mendenhall offered, but he had to put his commitment on hold for a few days.
"My dad was out of town, and I told him he had to be a part of it," Heder said. "I went back in on Tuesday with my mom and dad and officially committed then."
Heder had 15 tackles in five games last fall. He shattered his arm in the fifth game and was held out for the rest of the season.
"I didn't really expect to commit this early," Heder said. "I really just wanted to get some looks from them. Since I got injured, I'm kind of unknown, but it worked out well."
Two of Heder's teammates, Bryan Sampson and Joey Owens, have already committed to the Cougars' 2010 class, and Heder looks forward to a chance to continue playing with them.
"It's very cool," he said. "We're very bonded here, and we'll get to bring that to BYU. That will be special."
Heder said he's been following what BYU has already accomplished with its 2010 class and is excited by the future of the program.
"It's going to be really fun there, it should be great," he said. "I know a lot of the guys that have committed there."
Heder said he's happy to end his recruiting process so he can focus on leading Pleasant Grove to a state title, and there's zero chance he'll stray from his commitment in the next two years.
"It didn't matter who else offered me, I would only play college football for BYU," he said.
