Christian Micaiah Duffie (b. March 17, 2000) is a big ol’ boy who was recruited in the Class of 2018 to play offensive line. He redshirted in 2018 and trimmed down by about 13 pounds.

A three-year letter-winner for Summer Creek (Texas) High School under head coach Brian Ford, Duffie was viewed as the 45th-best offensive guard in the Class of 2018 by ESPN.

He was named a first-team All-District 21-6A performer as both a junior and senior, while he also was a second-team All-Greater Houston selection by The Houston Chronicle.

Duffie helped the Bulldogs to advance to the area round of Class 6A state playoffs. He was a high school teammate of current K-State quarterback John Holcombe II.

Duffie also wrestled, advancing to the regional round of the state meet in 2016. He assisted with Hurricane Harvey recovery prior to his senior year and is majoring in athletic training.

Duffie picked K-State over offers from Georgia State, Houston, Oregon State, Sam Houston State, SMU, Southeastern Louisiana, Texas State, Texas Tech, Tulane and Tulsa, as well as interest from Utah. His lead recruiter was his former position coach, Charlie Dickey.
