On the eve of the Pac-12 championship game, the Utah Utes picked up a commitment.

Three-star wide receiver Mikey Matthew announced his pledge to the Utes on Thursday night.

Matthews, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound wide receiver from Mission Viejo High School in Mission Viejo, Calif., tweeted out his choice, writing, “Utah I’m home.”

Matthews had 61 receptions for 934 yards and scored 10 receiving touchdowns this season, per his MaxPreps page.

He is the 16th commit to Utah’s 2023 recruiting class and is the fourth wide receiver to pledge to the Utes this class, joining Carlos Wilson, Kainoa Carvalho and Daidren Zipperer.

Matthews had offers from Tennessee, Michigan, Harvard, Indiana, Arizona, Arizona State, Washington State and Colorado, among others.

He took official visits to Utah, Boise State, Colorado and Washington State before picking the Utes.
