    Not sure that this is all the right info. Some sites show Tennessee Pututau as a DE and Taniela Pututau as a WR along with a brother, Fua Pututau on the team. Other's have Tennessee and Taniela as the same person.

    Two different twitter accounts too:
    Claiming the offer: https://twitter.com/Pu2tau
    Retweeting the offer: https://twitter.com/taniela_5

    Near as I can tell, Taniela is a Junior WR while Tennessee is a Sophmore DE/DT. I'll update this as soon as I get some more info.

    Looking at his twitter a little more, I think the young man offered is Tennessee, actually the sophomore DE/ DT, so is potentially a 2018 class player. (http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/tennessee-pututau/0aATsUUoEeW-8KA2nzwbTA/default.htm. Sorry, I had the wrong maxpreps link in the general notes thread.) Also, in his twitter summary he does have "mission bound #LDS", so assume there's a possibility he could arrive at college even later than 2018.

    Being that it's Tennessee Pututau, there isn't much information out there on him yet that I can find.

    Will one of the mods please adjust the title of this to reflect him as '18 UT DE?

    Just as a side note, Pookie Maka is also playing for cottonwood this season.

    (Note to mods. I think we're still believing the 1st name in the thread title should be changed to Tennessee. Also, both based on the above tweet and Maxpreps, looks he's a 2018 class player rather than 2017. Also, Maxpreps lists him as a DE, DT, OLB rather than a WR.))

    Oh well- maybe we can just keep this thread as Taniela's, as it sounds like the Buffs have just offered him! (We still need a thread for 2018 offer Tennessee, however.)

    Because that is what the equipment guy gave him to try on, sometimes people read way too much into things.

    I'm not reading into anything, I was just curious. Most visiting recruits take pictures and wear the number of their choice (high school number).

    That's my guess since we heard those comments from Tumpkin that he wants guys with ball skills, not guys who are playing defense because they can't catch.

    That's great size for a safety and to have ball in the air skills to go with it... Want him in black and gold.

    I was wondering the same. He looks like he has the frame to put on a lot of muscle.

    Outside linebacker opposite Pookie Maka is the pitch. He said he camped at 6-3, 210 this summer. Sent Adam a story. Plans a mission after high school so he won't get to college until 2019. Two brothers signed at Utah.

    Hopefully, he's taking a hard look at becoming a Buff. These are great coaches and CU is a great place for a kid like this from Utah.
