Speedy Texas Athlete Joins Colorado Commit List

KD Nixon, the weapon from Dallas, joins the Rise

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

KD Nixon, the all-around home-run threat from DeSoto High School and teammate of fellow CU commit Laviska Shenault, has decided to don the black and gold for college. And not Purdue, or Vanderbilt, or Missouri, or any of the other imposters. The real black and gold. Nixon joins the CU commit list after decommitting from Tennessee, and he is a bonafide four star talent. His tape shows why. Every time he touches the ball, he can take it to the house. He has elusiveness, strength, and pure speed FOR DAYS. Imagine him slotted next to Devin Ross on the football field. The possibilities are endless. Nixon is also comfortable coming out of the backfield. Put him on the field for 15 or 20 snaps in varying ways and you have a chance to score 15 or 20 times. Another day, another four star. Another sign that The Rise continues.

Welcome, KD!
