Mullen Prep star eyes Cyclone offer

Mullen Prep School Star Chris Carney won't be making his college decision for awhile, but Iowa State is atop his list.


The cornerback from Denver, Colo. attended Iowa State's padded camp in June and came away with an offer from the Cyclones.


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


He currently sits on four offers – Iowa State, Washington State, Wyoming and Northern Colorado; Colorado, Colorado State, Nebraska and Kansas State are also showing interest.


 "I'm guessing I'll make my decision sometime in December because I want wait until the end of my [high school] season," Carney said.


Mullen Prep won the 5-A 2004 State Championship beating Cherry Creek 30-9 and looks to repeat this season.


"We're looking pretty good," Carney said. "We're going to try and defend the state championship."


Carney said he doesn't have any personal goals heading into the season.


"Right now I'm not really focused on individual goals, just team goals and being able to come together and do this thing," he said.


Carney stands 6-foot-1, weighs 170 pounds and runs a 4.5/40 yard dash. He said the ISU coaching staff gave him one thing to work on.


"I just need to put on some weight," he said. "They didn't give me a weight right now, they will tell me [a specific weight] when I get there, if I do."


Location isn't a big factor in Carney's college choice; he said he's more interested in the college itself.


"I liked [Iowa State] a lot," Carney said. "I'm looking at majoring in business and there's a new [building] up there. It looked pretty nice and it reminded me of home."
