George Wilson loved how the Utah coaching staff recruited him and so this past weekend he decided to make a commitment to the Utes.
The Tustin, Calif., three-star wide receiver especially had developed a good relationship with Utah assistant coach Aaron Roderick and Wilson said he just felt like it was the perfect time to make his decision.
"It just felt right," Wilson said.
"I felt they gave me the best option to do what I always wanted to do and that's to play as a true freshman. It felt right, I prayed about it and everything felt right from when they first offered me until now so I thought it was great to make a decision.
"Coach Roderick was at our practice a lot and when they finally pulled the trigger I was so relieved. I knew they were really interested in me. It was great with them and everything was just right."
Wilson, who recently had a strong performance at the UCLA Elite Camp, said the timing was perfect. The three-star is happy to get things done before his senior season. San Jose State, UMass and Portland State had also offered but Utah was the right fit for him.
"I'm really happy about it," Wilson said. "Now I can just focus on football and my team and complete my senior goals with Tustin. It feels great to get it over with."
Wilson is happily committed but he's not counting out other official trips during his senior season. Depending on which programs get involved, the Tustin standout said he might take some visits to see what else is out there.
"I'm still thinking other official visits but I love the way Utah came after me," Wilson said. "It was straight business with them. I'm still open but as of right now I'm a Ute."
