    Max missed his senior year season in high school due to a torn ACL and MCL. Despite not playing, he was generally considered one of the top 10 guard prospects in the country. After signing with CU, Max played in his 2008 freshman opener against CSU and then started the next 2 games (including an upset victory against top 25 West Virginia). The next week during practice, he tore his other knee and missed the rest of the season. He was granted a redshirt due to the injury. Then, during offseason conditioning in 2009 prior to spring practices, Max re-tore the knee he had injured in high school. Speculation is that it was never repaired properly. Max missed the entire 2009 season due to that knee injury. Entering the spring of 2010, Max is about 90% recovered from the latest knee injury and is trying to win the starting job at LG.

    There is a good chance that Max will be granted a 6th year medical hardship waiver by the NCAA if he applies after his 5th year since he has missed 2 seasons due to injury. It is also a possibility that Max, a member of the LDS church, will choose to go on a mission at some point.
