"Everything was great. The school was great and I really liked the coaching staff and I wanted to be a part of a program that is rebuilding."
Tupou is a 6-foot-4, 302-pound prospect who can play offensive guard or defensive tackle and Colorado is expected to use him on defense.
Hawaii, Nevada, San Jose State and UNLV have also offered Tupou but he said after his decision to commit to Colorado that he doesn't plan to take any more trips. He had previously seen Nevada and San Jose State.
Tupou said he found everything he wanted at Colorado and was especially impressed with the coaching staff and their vision for the program's future.
"They're all good coaches," Tupou said.
"They're really good people and they were talking about how they were rebuilding Colorado to be in the championship and to compete for the Pac-12 championship so I wanted to be a part of that."
Tupou finished with 56 tackles and 3.5 sacks in his senior year. Buena Park was 8-3 this season.
