HT: 6-2 WT: 295
Chose Vanderbilt over: Interest from Fresno State, Louisville, San Diego State, SMU and Washington State.
Nichter is another Commodore senior who with the 2012 Music City Bowl will have been a part of three Vanderbilt bowl teams. Although Nichter didn't play in the 2008 bowl (he was redshirted), he provided a vital practice player for his teammates while being developed for future great things. When a person first meets Nichter he is awed with his physical stature, however, upon speaking with Nichter one quickly realizes he has a gentle personality. Despite his pleasant demeanor Nichter can be a beast on the field.
November 6, 2010 versus Florida. It was a rough day for Vanderbilt but the young Nichter gave Vanderbilt fans hope when he sacked Gator quarterback John Brantley for a 6-yard loss late in the first quarter.
"I think I'm more fit for this kind of defense; it's more vertical versus lateral.. I'm just going to keep working to the best of my abilities and see what happens." Colt Nichter on August 17, 2011 after practice.
