CU Recruiting Class of 2013 includes 3 from Colorado.

New Buffs coach signs 20 players Wednesday

BOULDER -  

   Mike MacIntyre's first recruiting class at the University of Colorado lacks star power and big names, and the Buffaloes' new coach insists that doesn't bother him at all.

  After all, his classes at San Jose State were similarly nondescript and he turned that program around in three seasons, taking a team that went 1-12 in 2010 to 11-2 last year.

   Nobody's expecting that quick of a turnaround at Colorado, where Jon Embree was fired following the worst season in school history, but MacIntyre's plan is to begin making steady progress right away.

   His recruiting wish list included keeping the 10 players who had committed to Colorado upon his arrival -- and he was successful -- beefing up both lines, adding speed at the skill positions and bulk at tight end.

 Here is the complete class:
