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.
#45 Reed Godinet
True Senior | 6-5 | 250 lbs. | Springdale, Arkansas
- Position: Defensive End
- Previous College: College of San Mateo (Calif.)
- Projection: Scout Team
- Status: Preferred Walk-On
Reed Bryant Godinet (b. May 26, 1997) is a preferred walk-on defensive end from the College of San Mateo in California who did not see any game action in 2019 and is majoring in communication studies.
It does not appear he has used his redshirt and thus he has three more years to play two seasons, thanks to the extra pandemic eligibility accrued from taking the field in 2020, when he played against Kansas, but did not record any statistics.
Godinet played the 2018 season under head coach Tim Tulloch at San Mateo, where he saw action in three games, totaling three tackles, and helped the Bulldogs to earn an 8-3 record and a trip to the NorCal Regional Playoffs.
He prepped at Springdale (Arkansas) High School under head coach Zack Clark.
Godinet’s father, Randall, lettered at K-State from 1984 to 1986, while his older brother, Taylor Godinet, played the 2011-14 seasons for Bill Snyder at K-State and then served seven seasons as the football program’s assistant director of recruiting under both Snyder and current head coach Chris Klieman. He now coaches Pittsburg State’s defensive line.
Both Reed and Taylor are nephews of an NFL Hall of Famer, the late Junior Seau.
