Four-star athlete KD Nixon committed to the Colorado Buffaloes on Tuesday night.


Boulder is on fire — not literally, but figuratively on the recruiting trail.

A day after Mike MacIntyre’s staff flipped 3-star center Xavier Newman from the Texas Longhorns, the Buffaloes landed another prized prospect out of the state of Texas, and he just so happens to be Newman’s high school teammate.

Four-star recruit KD Nixon committed to Colorado Tuesday night. He’s ranked as the No. 13 athlete and No. 191 overall player in the nation.

The DeSoto, Texas native released a statement regarding his decision.

“First off, I want to thank all of the schools who saw potential in me to play football at the next level. I am blessed to have been given several opportunities as such. Everyone who [knew] me growing up knows that this has been my dream since I was little. I owe this opportunity to my family, friends, coaches, and of course God. Now that I have been blessed with this chance, I am overwhelmingly excited to say I have committed to the University of Colorado.”

Nixon originally committed to Tennessee on April 16, four days after he named the Volunteers his leader. However, he decommitted in June and reopened his recruitment.

When Newman gave his pledge to Colorado, the Buffaloes moved up from No. 32 to No. 30 in the 2017 recruiting class rankings. Now that Nixon has also given his verbal commitment, MacIntyre’s team has jumped to No. 24 in the rankings.

Colorado has 20 total commits and 1,778 total recruiting points. The Buffaloes are only 257 recruiting points behind No. 20 South Carolina. Nixon’s commitment alone added 207 points.
