SALT LAKE CITY (The Salt Lake Tribune) — A University of Utah football player accused of raping a 17-year-old girl is facing additional charges after prosecutors say he also raped two women.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that 20-year-old wide receiver Terrell Perriman is now charged with eight felonies, including three counts of rape.

Perriman initially faced a single count of rape and a charge of aggravated kidnapping on suspicion of assaulting a teen girl he met on Instagram.

Prosecutors added to the charges Friday, saying he raped two women in Salt Lake County.

A defense attorney says Perriman didn't rape the teen. He didn't respond to a message about the additional charges.

The football team dismissed Perriman on Friday.
