  After three standout seasons at defensive end for Kansas State, Anudike-Uzomah made the highly-anticipated announcement Thursday via social media that he is bypassing his senior season and will enter the 2023 NFL draft. Anudike-Uzomah, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound junior from Kansas City, Missouri, arrived at K-State for the 2020 season as an unheralded recruit from Lee's Summit High School. He made it on the field for five games as a true freshman but really broke out the following year to become one of the most dominant edge rushers in Wildcat history. Running back Deuce Vaughn also declared for the draft as did wide receiver Malik Knowles and cornerback Julius Brents, both seniors who were eligible to return as super-seniors. Senior receiver Phillip Brooks announced Tuesday that he will take advantage of the extra year granted in response to the coronavirus pandemic. - Topeka Capital Journal

  The Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, a 5X time All-American in 2022, Felix Anudike-Uzomah will take his talents to the NFL. Uzomah announced on his Twitter account Thursday afternoon that he will declare for the 2023 NFL Draft. Uzomah finished the 2022 campaign with 46 tackles, 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass break up. Overall, "King" Felix ends his K-State career with 31 games played, 100 total tackles, 20.5 sacks (sixth in school history) and eight forced fumbles. - WIBW TV, Kansas

  Much has been made about Alabama stars Bryce Young and Will Anderson choosing to play in the Sugar Bowl later this week against Kansas State when most other elite NFL Draft prospects are deciding to "opt out" of postseason games. But let's not forget that the Wildcats have some future NFL prospects on their roster, too. No one would have blamed Felix Anudike-Uzomah, in particular, for skipping this game and focusing on his future as a professional athlete. The junior K-State defensive end was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year after piling up 44 tackles and sacking opposing quarterbacks 8 1/2 times this season. At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, he is one of the most difficult edge rushers to block in all of college football.

Anudike-Uzomah will hear his name called in the 2023 NFL Draft if he decides to declare early as a junior, or in 2024, if he chooses to return to college for one more year. For now, he is torn on when he should make the leap. "I haven't really decided that yet," Anudike-Uzomah said Wednesday. "I'm still talking with my parents about it, just to make sure I finalize things and make the right decision on what I'm going to do. "Right now, I really want to focus on this. If you ask me questions about it after the game I can probably give you a better answer. But I'm still not 100% sure on it." - The Kansas City Star

  2022 WALTER CAMP SECOND TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: DL Felix Anudike-Uzomah, Kansas State,...The 2022 Big 12 Defensive Player and Defensive Lineman of the Year, Anudike-Uzomah has totaled 44 tackles, 11.0 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks this season to go along with two forced fumbles and a pass breakup. He ranks second in the Big 12 in sacks thanks in part to 3.0 sacks against Texas Tech to tie for fourth in a game in school history. He is one of just two players in school history (Nyle Wiren, 1994-96) to record three career games with 3.0 or more sacks.

A finalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy and semifinalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award, Anudike-Uzomah registered at least a half TFL in nine of K-State's 13 games this year and at least a half sack in seven contests. He has 20.5 sacks in his career to tie for sixth in school history. Additionally, he has eight career forced fumbles to tie for fourth in K-State history and is just one shy of tying the school record. - Kansas State Football

  Despite boasting a league-high six preseason all-conference players, Kansas State was picked fifth in the Big 12 preseason football poll. Kansas State had a league-high six players named to the all-Big 12 preseason team, but that wasn't enough to convince media members that the Wildcats will make significant progress this year in the league standings. After going 8-5 overall and tying for fifth place with a 4-5 league record a year ago, the Wildcats were picked to again finish fifth Thursday in the 2022 preseason poll. Baylor - which finished at 12-2, tied Oklahoma for second during the regular season with a 7-2 mark and edged Oklahoma State in the championship game, 21-16 - is the preseason favorite for the first time in Big 12 history, ending a six-year run by OU.

K-State has high hopes for another step forward in the standings during coach Chris Klieman's fourth season with 16 starters - six on offense, seven defense and three specialists - returning and coming off an impressive 42-20 Texas Bowl victory over LSU. Leading the way for the Wildcats are defensive end Felix Anudike-Uzomah, the league's preseason player of the year, consensus All-America running back Deuce Vaughn and all-conference offensive tackle Cooper Beebe. - Topeka Capital Journal

  NOV 1 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Felix Anudike-Uzomah, Kansas State, DE, So.,...Anudike-Uzomah registered eight total tackles, 4.0 sacks for 20 yards, 4.0 TFL and also forced two fumbles in K-State's 31-12 win over TCU. His two forced fumbles also would have added two sacks to his total but the fumbles caused on the pass plays bounced forward. His 4.0 sacks tied Chris Johnson for the K-State single-game record and was just one shy of the Big 12 record. Anudike-Uzomah had sacks on back-to-back plays to end the first half and on the first play of the second half. He and Johnson are the only players in school history to have sacks on three-straight defensive plays, as the latter also did so in his 4.0-sack game at Missouri in 2000. K-State held TCU without an offensive touchdown until a late fourth-quarter score. Anudike-Uzomah was also named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. - Big 12 Football

  After watching Kansas State's Felix Anudike-Uzomah seemingly match a Division I record with six sacks in a 31-12 victory over TCU on Saturday, coach Chris Klieman made an observation that should send chills through Big 12 quarterbacks. Or heart palpitations through NFL scouts. "I'm sure there's things he can continue to improve and get better at," Klieman said with a slight grin and shake of his head, before adding quickly: "But you have that special day, that's pretty awesome." Anudike-Uzomah, whose safety last week against Texas Tech jumpstarted the Wildcats' comeback win, also forced two fumbles against TCU while appearing to shatter the school record of four sacks set by Chris Johnson in 2000.

About two hours after the game ended, though, the NCAA announced two of the sacks do not count because they resulted in fumbles that went beyond the original line of scrimmage. By rule, those plays must be counted as rushes by the QB. Regardless, the four sacks that did count still represented a banner day for Kansas State's burgeoning defensive star. "Stay hungry and keep doing what I'm doing in practice, honestly," Anudike-Uzomah said. "This is one game. It's not the end of the season. I need to work hard and work on technique so I can pile on and pile on." Only three other players in the NCAA's highest division have had six sacks, including longtime NFL star Elvis Dumervil. "How could you not be excited for the kid?" Klieman said. "He set all sorts of records today, and every single one of them was critical play in a tight ballgame. Felix earns it. He works his tail off every single day." Skylar Thompson threw for 242 yards and a touchdown while also running for a score, and Deuce Vaughn added 109 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, as the Wildcats (5-3, 2-3 Big 12) beat TCU (3-5, 1-4) for the third straight time. - TCU/AP College Football

K-State's defense held SIU to under 300 total yards in the win and also forced two fumbles. - Big 12 Football

  One newcomer and a forgotten face from the past were the most noteworthy takeaways when Kansas State coach Chris Klieman released his first official depth chart Monday ahead of the Saturday season opener against Stanford. Sophomore Felix Anudike, who appeared in five games last year as a true freshman, vaulted to the top of the chart at one defensive end position ahead of super-senior Bronson Massie. On offense, senior transfer Daniel Imatorbhebhe and junior Sammy Wheeler had received most of the hype at tight end, only to be listed in a dead heat behind super-senior Nick Lenners.

Anudike, a 6-foot-3, 255-pounder from Lee's Summit, Missouri, had received rave reviews throughout fall camp after recording a modest three tackles with one sack last year. Khalid Duke will start at the other end, with senior transfer Timmy Horne and senior Eli Huggins at tackle. "Tremendous," was defensive coordinator Joe Klanderman's assessment of Anudike's progress midway through camp. "Last year he was a good player that made splash plays in practice, but in the game situations you were always a little nervous. "Now he's the guy, and I think he's stepped into more of a leadership role. You can just tell by the way he walks, talks (and) acts, he's going to be a good player for a lot of years." Anudike agreed that his knowledge of the game has improved. He also has bulked up to 255 pounds after coming in before the COVID-19 quarantine at 215. "Coming in last year, I didn't know that much about how to play my role as a defensive end," he said. "Then seeing Wyatt Hubert, Bronson Massie and everybody ahead of me, they taught me the game better and made me play even faster." - Topeka Capital Journal
