    In the new defense, I think he's a linebacker. Shows good athleticism and uses his hands well in the highlights.

    Same HS as TJ Fehoko, who was committed to the Buffs for a while last year before having to switch it up to Wazzu.

    Jim Leavitt will be conducting an in-home visit with Pututau on Wednesday and will likely be trying to lock up an official visit date then. Right now Pututau has official trips lined up with Washington, Oregon State and Utah for January. He'll be choosing between Colorado, Washington State and Oklahoma State for his final two official visits. There aren't five open weekends for official visits left, but Pututau plans to take a couple mid-week visits in January. CU has offered his cousin Tennessee Putuau, who is still a sophomore. Full update with more on Fua and Tennessee for BufStampede subscribers: https://colorado.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1834746

    As a reminder on his plans (included in the article that Adam linked above):

    Like his older brother Howard Pututau, who signed with Utah in 2013, Fua plans to take a two-year LDS Mission after graduating from Cottonwood Senior. He will sign a letter of intent this February but will not enroll at his college of choice until 2018.

    The coaching staff has been extremely supportive of just this situation, particularly given the change in DC's. This is an excellent program and staff for a missionary to return home and play. The educational opportunities blow BYU away in quality and are significantly better than Utah. Hopefully, he'll give becoming a buff a hard look.

    That's a good sign, there was some doubt we wouldn't even be able to get him on an OV. Hope he has a great time in Boulder.

    Are these two enrolling in the summer? I thought I read that Maka is going on a mission...was that right?

    Either way, these would be great additions.

    I believe Pookie said he will take his trip after School is done and Fua won't sign till 2018 or so.
