"I just really liked the program there," said Dawe. "I really loved what BYU was about… once I knew, I knew. I didn't want to mess around and get caught up in the recruiting game."
"Now I can really dial down and focus on football my senior year and then my mission," said Dawe. "So I can come back and play at BYU."
Dawe was enamored with every part of the BYU program, but singled out a few aspects.
"The coaches at BYU are all amazing, when I went in, ever since I was a sophomore, they have always been nice and extremely great examples," said Dawe. "As far as the campus, when I walked around people are just really happy. That is where I want to be."
Dawe made his commitment to the coaches firsthand.
"My older brother Parker walked on there, so he is in with the coaches all the time," said Dawe. "I got a call from him that coaches wanted me to come down and hang out, do a tour of the facilities. I was already going commit, so I went down and toured. Then I met with Mendenhall and we talked about stuff, I committed to him."
The Cougar head coach mirrored the excitement of his new commitment.
"He was really excited, he said he was proud of me. He is a great guy," said Dawe. "I am excited and grateful for the opportunity."
