    Kris Means

    Has anyone heard anything about how Kris Means was doing in practice? For being a high school all american there has not been much discussion on him. I know he is being redshirted but I was curious to know if he is lighting people up in practice.

    His dad posts on CN on the premium board often. While it's not fair for me to share that info specifically - Means has been impressing the coaches and we should expect to see him on the field next year. Maybe even on the other side of the ball.

    I've heard he has been quite a disappointment and may have not been worthy of his hype.

    The actual sources that I trust (Chris Williams, etc) have stated quite differently.

    So pardon me if I don't buy a lick of what you just typed.

    He was a disappointment in the sense that Garrin beat him out for playing time this year. It was expected to be the other way around.

    I think Means has a bright future.

    According to rivals, Means was the #44 ILB and Garrin was the #55 ILB, so I don't see how that was such a disappointment. Both guys are talented and will have great futures. The difference is that Garrin was picking up the position faster.

    Exactly.
