Player Profile: KD Nixon
(Video interview will AutoPlay above or click play below)
Nixon has been on the recruiting radar for a long time and he debuted as a four-star in the very first rankings release for the 2017 recruiting class on Scout. He got his start as a freshman at DeSoto as a dangerous return man, but as his experience has increased, so has his role on the team. He will still get action in the return game, but he will line up in the slot and at running back as well. He is usually the most explosive and fastest player on any field he steps on. That is a huge strength, but he is also a very good football player. He plays hard and he does the little things the coaches ask of him. He will block -- as a matter of fact he had the most devastating block I have seen all year in the win against Cedar Hill. He is a multi-faceted weapon that should excel in a wide open offense in college and he will also be a factor on special teams.
Nixon has an official visit scheduled with Colorado (10/15) and mentioned schools like Houston, Illinois and SMU are still on him very hard so far in 2016.
