"I'm 100 percent with Utah," Hatfield said. "Everything is in order. I already know when I'm leaving, June 15, and I'm ready to go. I don't think any college could change my mind right now.
"The coaching staff at Utah really stood out the most. They made me really comfortable. When I went on a visit everything was set up for me to see how I could succeed there and the education is big, too."
The chance for Hatfield to play in the Pac-12 was also a draw to Hatfield, who said it was important for him to be able to make some trips back home to play college football.
For Hatfield, everything seemed to fit nicely at Utah and he's excited to get things started there - and not worry about the recruiting process any longer as signing day inches closer.
"That's very big for me because my family stays on the West Coast so when we get to play UCLA or USC I feel like I'm home," Hatfield said. "That was a really big thing for me to stay in the Pac-12."
Recruiting has not been too hectic for Hatfield, who said he gets mail and some calls but it's been slow since his Utah commitment.
"It's been pretty easy," Hatfield said. "I get calls here and there but nothing really serious."
