LB Pookie Maka Leaves CU Football Program

Colorado has confirmed that outside linebacker Pookie Maka has left the football program. A true freshman last season, Maka redshirted in his one season on campus. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder from Cottonwood High School in Salt Lake City, Utah, selected CU in the final days before national signing day in 2016.
