Servite WR Delon Hurt flips to UCLA from Utah

Less than one week after backing off a verbal commitment to Utah, Servite receiver Delon Hurt flipped his pledge to UCLA.

The three-star recruit announced his commitment to UCLA on Wednesday, boosting Chip Kelly’s 2018 recruiting class to 15 after the Bruins also received a verbal pledge from junior college safety/linebacker Je’Vari Anderson on Wednesday.

Hurt had 59 catches for 909 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior at Servite, but committed to Utah in December as a defensive back. The 6-foot, 190-pound prospect told 247 Sports he recently got an offer from UCLA assistant coach Jimmie Dougherty as a wide receiver, which prompted him to re-think his Utah commitment after not signing his National Letter of Intent with the Utes during last month’s early signing period.

    Flipping 3 stars from Utah ain’t exactly flipping 5 stars from Bama, but I guess it’s a start.

      A happy 3 star recruit will curry favor and block down field; the 5 star recruit might be too P/O to block, because the QB didn’t chuck the ball to him.

        Eric Kendricks was a 3 star. Johnathan Franklin was a 3 star. They turned out to be pretty good players.

        Gotta make you feel good when he beats u guys every year!

          2 star coach with 4& 5 star talent beat a 2 star coach with 3&4 star talent. Urban had no problems. Neither did Saban.

            Non-responsive… Well played.

  • Bruin82UCLA

    Marcus Mariota was a 3 star

    Good to see the Bruins stocking up on some skill positions, especially since the coaching staff got off to a late start. They do, however, need to land more O-line candidates.

    No doubt some 3 stars have proven to be better and some 5 stars haven’t lived up to their rating. I’m optimistic that Chip will coach them up and get them to perform better than expected, but when it comes to national championships the better percentage of those competing on a national level are top ten in recruiting.
