In regards to my post on Stackoverflow, I pointed my crawl and index to the location of my collection. In this case:
$ bin/nutch crawl urls -solr http://localhost:8983/solr/rockies -depth 1 -topN 5 $ bin/nutch solrindex http://localhost:8983/solr/rockies crawl/crawldb -linkdb crawl/linkdb crawl/segments/*
Additionally, I updated the -depth to 1 (specifies how deep to go after the link is defined. In this case 1 link from main page) and -topN to 5 (how many documents will be retrieved from each level).
