Corral, from Long Beach, Calif., originally committed to the Gators on July 22 of this year, but he took an official visit to Oxford to meet with new coach Matt Luke and the coaching staff on Dec. 8.
At 6-foot-2 and 196 pounds, Corral is listed as the No. 3 pro-style quarterback and No. 60 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class by 247Sports composite rankings and is expected to sign during the early period between Dec. 20-22.
During his senior season at Long Beach Poly HS, Corral threw for 2,495 yards and 29 touchdowns while also rushing for three more scores. He finished his high school career with 10,178 passing yards, 103 passing touchdowns and 20 rushing touchdowns.
Corral will play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on Jan. 8, 2018.
While this move helps Ole Miss, Mullen and the Gators are now in a hole as they have no quarterbacks currently committed in the 2018 class.
