Maddox Kopp Added To Buffs Roster

Dec 21, 2021

BOULDER – Karl Dorrell Monday announced the addition of Maddox Kopp to the Colorado Buffaloes football team, a transfer quarterback who played his freshman season at the University of Houston in 2021.  

Kopp, 6-5, 210-pounds, has four years left to play four after not seeing action at Houston last season.  Originally from Houston, he prepped at St. Thomas Cathlolic High School.  He is the 22nd member of the Buffs 2022 signing class and first transfer into the class.  

"We need depth in our program," Dorrell said. "We went through the season last season with two scholarship quarterbacks and that's obviously something we had to fix.  We looked at Maddox early on in his recruitment a year ago and we liked his skill set.  When he became available, it was a good opportunity for us to add depth to the quarterback's room." 

Kopp was a Sports Illustrated All-American and Elite 11 finalist, throwing for 6,334 yard and 59 touchdowns in his career at St. Thomas, mostly in his junior and senior seasons.  His senior season, he completed 196-of-328 passes for 3,134 yards with 30 touchdowns and just four interceptions and added 42 rushes for 292 yards and one touchdown.  He had 10 300-yard games over his junior and senior seasons including a pair of games over 400 and one over 500 yards, which came against San Antonio Christian when he hit on 18-of-33 passes for 533 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception.  

The youngest of four brothers, Kopp comes from an athletic family as all four are college athletes.  His brother Braden is an offensive tackle at Vanderbilt while brothers Miller (Northwestern) and Anderson (Lamar) are college basketball players.
