Kisima Jagne considered all his options and nearly a month after taking his official visit to Colorado has decided that the Buffaloes are the team for him.
Jagne, an athletic, aggressive 6-foot-5, 235-pound defensive end from Chandler, Ariz., committed to Colorado late Thursday night over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Purdue, Washington, Washington State and others.
It is a huge pickup for Colorado since Jagne is raw but has lots of athletic ability and is an aggressive, tough player.

"I can play when I get there," Jagne said. "They only have two defensive ends there now and just all the coaches (really stood out)."
Jagne, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, developed an especially good relationship with Colorado defensive line coach Kanavis McGhee throughout his recruitment and McGhee was cited as one of the biggest reasons why he picked the Buffaloes.
Apparently, Jagne committed during an in-home visit with McGhee on Thursday.
Even though he just made his pledge, Jagne did not rule out other visits.
The three-star recruit said there is a chance he can take trips to Oklahoma State and Oregon State and possibly Purdue over the next couple months.
Rivals.com rates Jagne as the No. 26 strong-side defensive end in the 2012 class and one of the top 10 players in the Arizona state rankings.
Chandler finished its season 8-4.
