The quarterback room for the Colorado Buffaloes just got a bit more interesting.

On Monday evening, former Houston quarterback Maddox Kopp announced that he has committed to play for the Buffs next fall.

Kopp has four years of eligibility to play at CU. The 6-foot-5 Houston native was a 3-star recruit and the 53rd-ranked quarterback prospect in the 2021 class, per the 247 Composite. Kopp threw for more than 6,000 yards and 59 touchdowns during his high school career. As a senior, he threw for 3,134 yards and 30 touchdowns with just four interceptions. But with Clayton Tune still in town for another year, Maddox sought a new spot and went into the portal on Nov. 15.

At CU, he’ll join a quarterback competition that figures to feature plenty of options heading into the new year.

The Buffs’ incumbent starter, Brendon Lewis, started all 12 games for Colorado this season as a second-year freshman and threw for 1,540 yards, 10 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Colorado averaged the fifth-fewest passing yards per game last season and had one of the worst yards-per-attempt clips in the country.

For QB coach Danny Langsdorf and head coach Karl Dorrell, the hope is increased competition is the first step toward more efficient play.
