Three-star CB flips from Virginia to Utah
The Utah Utes pulled high three-star cornerback Hipolito Corporan (Houston/Westside) from his Virginia verbal following an official visit to Salt Lake City, according to multiple sources.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Corporan, a second team all-state selection as a senior, originally selected the Cavs in May. Baylor, Tulsa and UTEP also offered earlier in the process.
ESPN writes in his scouting report: "Corporan is a very good pass defender along with the physical toughness needed to force the run off the edge. Has the size and athleticism for the cornerback position at the major level of competition... could see early situational playing time on defense and special teams."
