Pookie Maka joins the Buffs from their neighboring state of Utah (suck it, rivals!) Jim Leavitt's favorite recruit this cycle got a lot of attention from the coach, and all of that 'crootin paid off in the end. Maka has great playmaking ability at linbebacke, with fluid motion and a motor that just doesn't quit. He has the frame to really bulk up, and the speed to make things happen behind the line. He plays downhill and with passion. Maka might redshirt with CU, which would be the best thing academically and to help him put on weight, but he has the talent to help immediately. He also is an immediate entry into the all-name Buff team.
Welcome to the Buffs, Pookie!
