JuCo safety Aaron Maddox commits to Colorado

Maddox will instantly compete for a starting spot.

The Buffs are losing a lot of production from the safety position. Afolabi Laguda and Ryan Moeller are gone, leaving a lot of snaps on the field to be taken. One can assume that Nick Fisher and Evan Worthington can step into those spots, but that leaves a huge hole in the depth chart. Enter Aaron Maddox.

Maddox, a JuCo transfer from Pima Community College, is a freshman that has 4 to play. He went to junior college to get bigger offers than what he got out of high school. That worked out well. After an offer from CU, he garnered offers from NC State, Louisville, Kansas, Arizona State, Kentucky, Maryland, and others.

It’s easy to see why he got so many offers. He shows crazy range in his highlight tape. He can move, cover, and hit. At 6’1 and 190, he’s pretty big, and his punt returns show some nice athleticism. Maddox fits the bill for a Coach Mac safety: mean, physical in man coverage, and versatile.

Welcome, Aaron!
