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.
