Salt Lake Signs Former Utah Ute

The Screaming Eagles have signed a second former Utah Ute.

After signing offensive lineman Siaosi Aiono on Nov. 14, the Screaming Eagles agreed to terms with former Utes' cornerback Davion Orphey on a 2017 contract.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pounder from Compton, Calif., played two seasons at Santa Ana College (2011-12) before transferring to Utah as a three-star JUCO recuit, selecting the Utes over offers from BYU, Mississippi State and others.

As a junior in 2013, he played in 11 games, recording 33 tackles and five pass breakups. A year later, he had 25 tackles, five pass breakups, two fumble recoveries and one touchdown in helping Utah reach nine wins for the first time as a member of the Pac-12.
