Former New Mexico State OLB Nikhil Webb-Walker commits to the Buffaloes

On Friday, former New Mexico State outside linebacker Nikhil Webb-Walker became the second defensive transfer to join the Colorado Buffaloes in as many days.

The Jamaica native played his high school football at Bridgton Academy in Maine before going to Las Cruces. In two seasons with the Aggies, Webb-Walker accumulated 26 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble while getting time at linebacker and on the defensive line.

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 275 pounds, Webb-Walker will bring much-needed size and the ability to stop the run to a defense that needs both. He also brings three seasons of eligibility to CU.

Regarding where he fits on Colorado’s roster, I imagine Webb-Walker will be fighting for a starting spot on the defensive edge after the losses of Jordan Domineck and Taijh Alston.
