Just what is the difference, if any?
High pulls are the same beginning movement as a hang clean, but without flipping the bar and wrists. The bar is to be kept close to the body. So how is this different than an upright row with a wide (clean width) grip?

upright row uses a stand up (straight back) position
high pull you lean over and it much more explosive (and it's somewhat of full body ex.)SCIVATION XTEND...... 8-10 scoops a-day make the fibras happy!!!!!!

High pulls are really nothing like upright rows. Someone who has never learnt them might think they're similar, especially when they look at this clip which is invalid:
Upright rows are all arm strength. No lower body involvement.
High pulls are intiated like an olympic lift with the lower body (hips, knees, ankles). The bar doesn't even end up all that high with the main upper body movement being the rapid shrug.
This is where your high pull should end:
