He finished his career with 395 tackles, including a team-leading 126 as a junior in 2008 and a career-high 127 as a senior in ’09. He also tallied 29.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks and eight interceptions for the Trojans.

Nixon, 6-3, 225, from Arizona State started his collegiate career late after spending four years (2002-05) as a catcher in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ minor-league system. He enrolled at Arizona State in 2006 and went on to become a two-time honorable mention All-Pac-10 choice who finished his career with 253 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and eight interceptions. Nixon also excelled in the classroom, earning numerous academic awards from the Pac 10 and ESPN The Magazine.
