Vitals: 5’10”/ 165 lbs./ 4.56 40-Time/ 37” Vertical

Film Analysis: Max Wariboko is a solid cornerback prospect. He has a smaller frame, but is able to continually make plays on the ball. Wariboko is surprisingly physical, weighing only 165 pounds. That weight will need to go up some, if he intends to maintain his physical play at the next level. Wariboko is the younger brother of highly touted offensive lineman recruit Josh Wariboko. It begs the question how there was such a huge difference in size of the two Wariboko boys. Max Wariboko breaks on the ball well, and part of that is attributed to his good vision and ability to read the quarterback and the routes that are run by receivers. The one issue I have with Wariboko’s game may not even be an issue at all, but it appears that Wariboko’s motor is one that is easily turned on and off. He may just be a very laid back and cool customer, but in just the way he plays, it looks like he could always be playing just a bit harder. Again, this may be nothing and he is out there giving 110 percent.

My Rating: 3-Star CB, Top 5 2016 Oklahoma Prospect, Top 2016 CB in Oklahoma, Top 35 2016 CB in Nation

The Verdict: Max Wariboko will be a Division I cornerback somewhere. Obviously the question is where. Wariboko is one of the few 2016 players that already has offers this early on. Those offers have come from schools like Louisville, Tulsa and UCLA. Other schools like Arkansas, Clemson, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are evaluating the 2016 corner. Wariboko has solid skills all around and should improve as his body continues to mature. Unless he grows, he won’t be an elite prospect in my mind, but he will definitely be a guy that will have his college paid for somewhere.

Pros: Scrappy, Vision

Cons: Size, Motor
