It was a tough few months as the Utes came calling, but in the end, 2016 wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman is sticking with his commitment to be a BYU Cougar.

That's what Trinnaman told Ryan McDonald of the Deseret News on Wednesday, reaffirming his original commitment to BYU last June.

Trinnaman said he made his decision after his official visit to Utah and his former recruiter to BYU, Guy Holliday.

"I wanted to hear what (Holliday) had to say in his new role at Utah. I really just wanted to make sure that I was making the right choice, so I went up there (on an official visit)," Trinnaman told the DNews. "It was a great time, but I just didn't feel comfortable. I've been a BYU fan my whole life and grew up going to games. Talking to Sitake and all of them yesterday, I just kind of got the feeling that's where I need to be."

Despite the best hopes of some Utah fans on Twitter, even mom says it's over:

Trinnaman is one of BYU's highest-rated commitments. The junior-to-be out of Snow College is a three-star composite by 247 Sports with a rating of 87.43.

That rating makes Trinnaman the top-rated recruit to be signing with BYU on National Signing Day. He comes in just behind DB Troy Warner (4*, 90.09) and DL Handsome Tanielu (4*, 89.03) on BYU's commitment list, both of whom are already signed and/or enrolled.

In his final year at Snow College, Trinnaman caught 47 passes in 11 games, tallying 803 yards and 8 touchdowns. He also made his name in kickoff returns, totaling 576 yards on 17 returns (33.9 yards/return) and one 99-yard touchdown.

Signing day is Feb. 3. Check out his highlights here:
