NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

Felix Anudike (b. Jan. 24, 2002) is a true sophomore defensive end from Lee’s Summit High School North in Missouri who was one of nine true freshmen to see playing time in 2020.

He played in five games, had three tackles and a sack on the year, and tallied a season-high two tackles at TCU, while he carded his first career sack against Kansas.

Under head coach Eric Thomas, Anudike carded 184 tackles, 55 tackles for loss and 13 sacks throughout his three-year career for the Tigers.

He had 77 tackles as a junior, 20 of which went for a loss; also had 20 tackles for loss as a sophomore; and recorded five sacks as both a junior and senior.

Anudike picked up first-team all-state honors a senior from the Missouri Football Coaches Association (MFCA) and the Missouri state media, while he was a second-team pick by the MFCA as a junior and earned all-district honors in his final three seasons from the MFCA.

He previously committed to and then subsequently decommitted from North Dakota State.

Anudike also had offers from Northern Iowa, South Dakota and Tulsa, as well as interest from Nebraska. His unique scholarship status was efficiently explained by GoPowercat.com:

Anudike is considered a blue shirt for K-State’s 2020 class, which is why he does not appear in the official press release by the university. As a blue shirt, Anudike’s scholarship won’t kick in until the start of his first freshman practice and thus he does not actually count towards the commitment total of the 2020 group.
