Bringing In Reinforcements On The D-Line, Colorado Adds Another Verbal Commit

The Colorado Buffaloes and their coaches are showing no signs of slowing down on the recruiting trail as they have just received a verbal commitment from Riverside, California defensive end Samson Kafovalu. Samson's pledge continues a torrid pace for recruiting on the defensive side of the ball. Kafovalu is the fifth defensive line commit in the last five weeks, adding another very solid player who should come in and compete for playing time in his first full season. After a slower than expected start in California for the Buffs, Kafovalu is the fourth straight verbal from the state, which now has eight total players headed to Boulder.

Welcome aboard Samson!

Notes: From Rivals ($):
"Kafovalu, a 6-foot-3, 253-pounder, played every position on the defensive line as a senior. He constantly took on double and triple teams, allowing Arlington's linebackers to make plays.

"Coach 'Tui' at Colorado is a good guy. I told him it doesn't matter to me where I play on the defensive line. He did say I would probably play the three-technique," Kafovalu said. "I am a hard working guy. I am going to go out there and do what I got to do."
