Nichter, who first heard from Vanderbilt just about a month ago, projects to play as a "3 technique" defensive tackle at Vandy.
While Nichter is excited about his future at Vanderbilt he struggled with his decision to decommit from WSU.
"I really liked both the coaches. It was a hard decision. I weighed the pros and cons of it and just felt more comfortable with Vanderbilt. It was the worst 5-minute telephone conversation of my life (calling the WSU coaches) but I've got to go with my heart. I can't pass up a Vandy education. It's a great city and great coaches. It was almost a dream come true."
Nichter's host while visiting Vandy was T.J. Greenstone. Nichter had a great visit to Vandy and toured both Nashville and Vanderbilt. He also dined at Dave and Busters.
Colt credits his father with helping to excel, "I'm very thankful to have him; I wouldn't be going to Vanderbilt or any other division I school without him."
The Utah star acked up 82 tackles with 6 sacks in 2007, earning first team All-State and first team All-Region 10 honors as a senior. He plans on majoring in Human and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt.
