A lot of things can happen between now and National Signing Day in two weeks, but it looks like four-star wide receiver KD Nixon (5-foot-8, 182 pounds, DeSoto, Tex.) is staying put. On Wednesday, Nixon — a former Tennessee pledge — tweeted that he was “110-percent” committed with Colorado.
Nixon had previously committed to Colorado back in October after he had originally decommitted from Tennessee, but many saw Nixon’s recruitment as still an open race after that. Baylor had gotten heavily involved to try and keep Nixon in-state, but it looks like their overtures failed.
With Nixon firmly on board, Colorado has 23 commitments for their 2017 recruiting class, which ranks fifth in the Pac-12 per 247Sports.
