BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Colorado Buffaloes didn't land a flashy prized recruit this year, just a fleet of fill-a-need type players. Then again, glamour is in the eye of the recruiter, and coach Dan Hawkins was brimming at his bounty.

The Buffaloes received letters of intent from 19 players Wednesday, including Nick Kasa, a coveted defensive lineman from Thornton, Colo., who spurned the reigning national champion Florida Gators in favor of the Buffs.

Five of 19 are from Colorado. It's the third straight year Hawkins has sealed up the state's top product, landing offensive tackle Ryan Miller in 2007 and linebacker Jon Major last year.
