KUSA - In a matter of three hours Wednesday morning, Colorado State football coach Jim McElwain added 26 players to his roster.

The Rams got their first letter at 6:18 a.m. and their last at 9:15 a.m., and they didn't have any surprises.

CSU added 22 high school athletes, including nine from Colorado, and four junior-college transfers.

In an effort to build depth in the secondary, the Rams signed seven defensive backs, including juco transfer Preston Hodges, who was a running back at Bakersfield (Calif.) Community College. He is the only one of the four jucos who is not currently on campus.
