Colorado tight end Nick Kasa received an invitation to play in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game in January, the school announced on Monday.

Kasa, 22, was a highly-recruited defensive end that didn't make a switch to the tight end position until late in his junior season. As a senior, Kasa recorded 25 receptions for 391 yards and three touchdowns. His efforts earned him a spot on the Mackey Award mid-season watch list, but he was not listed as one of the three finalists for the award recognizing the nation's top tight end.

The East-West Shrine Game is an annual college football all-star game that is more commonly used as an opportunity for NFL scouts and coaches to observe an incoming NFL Draft prospects. After a week of practice, which is considered by many to be a more important time that features scouts and coaches working hands on with players, the game is played on Jan. 19 and will be televised on NFL Network.
