More from the Colorado Contingent

Perhaps no state, other than Iowa, has been better represented at ISU's padded camp this week than the state of Colorado. Two more players from the state's contingent spoke to CycloneNation.com about their interest in Iowa State and its football program.

Both Kris Means and Chris Carney are the newest potential Cyclones after receiving offers at Iowa State's padded camp Friday.

The two hail from Colorado, Means plays linebacker/fullback at Grand Junction High School; while Carney attends Mullen Prep School in Denver and is a cornerback. Grand Junction is a 4A school and Mullen Prep is a 5A school, so the two have never met on the football field.

Means amassed 145 tackles, the third most in the state of Colorado, and eight sacks. As a full back he rushed for 1,200 yards on 124 carries and 14 touchdowns. He was a first team all-conference linebacker and running back and earned all-state recognition as a linebacker.

Carney was a first team all-league selection after collecting 110 tackles, one fumble recovery, one sack and one interception.

CN: What is your height, weight and 40 time?

Means: 6-foot-1, 220 pounds. I ran a 4.6 here, but my fastest time is 4.53.

Carney: 6-foot-1, 180 pounds and I run a 4.5/40.

CN: What schools do you have offers from?

Means: Colorado, Colorado State and now Iowa State.

Carney: Washington State, Northern Colorado and Iowa State

CN: What other teams are showing interest in you?

Means: UCLA and Arizona State.

Carney: Colorado, Colorado State, Nebraska and Kansas State.

CN: Do you plan on attending any more camps?

Carney: Probably one more at CSU in July.

CN: What's been your impression of Iowa State's camp so far?

Means: It's been great out there. The coaches are a lot of fun and I got to look around the school.

Carney: I just really like the coaches here and every thing has been really good.

CN: What do you think of the ISU coaches?

Means: I think they get after you and make you work hard; that's really important. It's fun to be out there but you also need to work hard

CN: What strengths to you bring to your team?

Means: I'm pretty good at pass rushing and stopping the run, so those are my two strong points.

Carney: I'm real quick with my feet and I come up and hit.
