"I would say that Arizona State and Colorado are my top two right now," said Kris Means. "I would have to say I like Colorado a little more because I know more about them and have seen them. After those two, I mainly like Nebraska and Oklahoma.

"Nebraska has a winning tradition and they have great fans. They are always competitive up there. They have been sending me a lot of letters recently."

Kansas State is another school that is peaking the interest of Means. "Coach (K-State wide receivers coach Greg) Peterson has told me that he really liked my tape and he will be coming to visit me. The Arizona State coach told me the same thing."

It now appears that schools are letting Means know where they like him. "Colorado likes me at linebacker and I think that Arizona State and Nebraska do, too. Kansas State wants to see more defensive tape on me, but right now they say they like me on both sides of the ball.

"I want to play defense. That would be my preference."

The most handwritten letters for Means are coming from Colorado State. "Coach Lubick has sent me a couple."

Nebraska and Colorado are showing the most attention behind the Rams. "Coach (tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator John) Wristen at Colorado has been e-mailing with me. I contact him through e-mail if I have any questions. I have also been doing that with Coach Peterson."

The athlete is starting to figure out his summer camp schedule. "I will go to both CU camps (elite and three-day). A lot of my teammates will be going to the extended one. I also would like to go to both camps at Oklahoma, Arizona State and Nebraska.

Means recently scored a 28 on his ACT and has already scored an 1150 on the SAT. He will take both tests again.
