Two weeks before finalizing the 2017 recruiting class, the Colorado Buffaloes got a hard commit from KD Nixon.

The talented four-star wide receiver made the decision to stay with Colorado over flipping to Baylor after verbally committing to CU in October. Nixon ended his senior season with a state championship at Desoto HS (Desoto, TX), gathering 69 receptions for 1,148 yards and 11 touchdowns.

There was a lot of speculation about Nixon staying in the Lone Star State after Baylor officially made him an offer two days before Christmas. He’s the highest ranked receiver and becomes the fourth receiver to join the Buffaloes 2017 class, with three of them coming from Texas.

Nixon follows his Desoto teammate, Laviska Shenault, as the second player to stay at Colorado. The third player of the Desoto Trio, Xavier Newman, decommitted from CU in favor of Baylor last month.

Buffs offensive coordinator Darrin Chiaverini showed his excitement over Nixon staying.

Colorado’s 2017 class could be growing bigger in the next two weeks before National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
