New offers have been flying left and right this week in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. While several teams have issued multiple offers, none has extended as many as Colorado. Here's a closer look at the Buffs' new targets in DFW.

Mansfield Legacy defensive tackle Taaj Bakari picked up two big offers this week, including one from Colorado on Thursday, according to BuffPlaybook.com. The 6-foot-2, 287-pound interior lineman also has TCU and Oklahoma State offers and should continue to see his recruitment increase.

Friday marked the day Colorado cut loose with offers all over the eastern and southern portions of the DFW Metroplex.

Dallas Bishop Dunne defensive tackle Darrion Daniels got an offer from the Buffaloes, who join a list of almost 20 schools to offer the large-framed prospect. USC, Ohio State, Texas, Oklahoma, Baylor, and Notre Dame are included on that lengthy list of offers.

Colorado also offered big-time Ennis defensive end James Lockhart, who holds more than a dozen offers. Scout.com ranks Lockhart as the No. 15 defensive end in the country.

Cedar Hill linebacker Richard Moore and Rockwall-Heath safety Deshon Elliott snagged the other two Colorado offers. Moore's CU offer joined a Missouri offer that also came Friday, while Elliott's Buffaloes offer accompanied a Friday offer from Ole Miss.

If you had not already noticed, perhaps the most interesting thing about Colorado's efforts in DFW this week is that all five players to receiver offers play defense, including three on the defensive line.

Colorado is no stranger to Texas. The Buffaloes had 12 Texans on their 2013 roster, nine of which came from the Houston metropolitan area.

Colorado signed two Texans -- also defenders -- in its 2014 class: linebacker Grant Watanabe and tackle Eddy Lopez.
