After redshirting the 2008–09 season for medical reasons, Felix averaged 14.8 points and 4.7 rebounds in 2009–10 at College of Southern Idaho.[4] Felix joined the Arizona State Sun Devils for his final three years of eligibility. During his first year at Arizona State, Felix made appearances in 30 of the Sun Devils 31 games, averaging 14.5 minutes and 4.6 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. In his second season, he saw an increase in minutes up from 14.5 the previous season to 32.9 per game.
