MacIntyre and his coaching staff appear to realize the Buffs have certain need areas of JC guys coming in and helping right away in this rebuilding process of the CU Football Program.

BuffPlayBook.com caught up with JC Offensive tackle Haniteli Lousi from College of San Mateo on his interest in the Buffs.

"I have an offer and a lot of interest in Colorado," Lousi said Thursday night. "I'm going to take an official visit to Colorado on the weekend of the USC game and one the next weekend to the Kansas game."

The 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle, currently has offers from Colorado, Washington State, Arizona State, San Jose State, Kansas, and Hawaii.

Does the talented lineman have an early favorite?

"No right now I'm keeping all my options open," Lousi said. "I'm really looking forward to my visit to Colorado."

Lousi also has ties to Coach Mike MacIntyre and the Buffs current coaching staff.

"Coach Mac recruited my younger brother Cedric to San Jose State," Lousi said. "He still had a couple of years to play for the Spartans after he returns home from his current mission."

Speaking of missions, Lousi plans on taking his after he completes his college football career. ?

"I'm going to wait until football is completely over," Lousi said. "I'm ready to play D1 Football, I can't wait."

Coach Klayton Adams and Coach Jim Jeffcoat are recruiting Lousi for the Buffs.

"I have built solid relationships with those guys, they are great," Lousi said. "My entire family have a lot of respect for Coach MacIntyre and his coaching staff."

According to Lousi, there is a chance that he will graduate in December and join the college of his choice in January.

"Right now I'm not sure, but there is a chance I will graduate in December," Lousi said. "I'm hoping I will, we will have to wait and see."
