    Kris Means

    On rivals it says he has tranferred anyone know why? I'm guessing because he wasn't going to play much.

    Re: Kris Means

    His dad (dirtcop) used to post a lot on CN...I conversed with him a few times via PM over there and some again near the "end" - he was trying to get on here but was having sign-up issues.

    Maybe he did eventually venture over here and will be able to shed some light for us.

    So what did you converse about "near the end"??

    Re: Kris Means

    Since there is not a true FB position in the new offense he felt he was better suited at another program.

    A friend of mine said he didn't fit the Chizik offense, and is transferring to Mesa State.

    Re: Kris Means

    He probaly just wants to play more than a few downs of a game. Dirtcop did say at one point Kris was upset about the way things were going and they thought some things were handled poorly. With the RBs and LBs that are on campus and coming in it would be hard for him to see PT at either spot. Sometimes players and new coaches just dont gel. Sorry to see him go, his dad alwasy had good thoughts over on CN, I wish him well if this is true.

    Re: Kris Means

    Kid had tons of credentials coming out of HS. Looked to be the "real deal". Got lost in the shuffle it sounds unfortunately.

    Sounds like a respectable decision done in an amicable way.

    Best of luck, Kris!

    He was a 4* LB out of HS, but switched to FB a year ago.

    Wasn't it the other way around?

    Re: Kris Means

    Really? I never saw him as any higher than a 3 star anywhere and most places projected him as a fullback or a linebacker.

    Edit: This post should also note that I was incredibly high on Means and I thought he'd be one of the steals of the class. Wish him the very best and I hope he has the chance to succeed in a system built for his style.

    Re: Kris Means

    I had a class with him and I never would have guessed he was a football player. I finally saw him one day with sweats on that had a number. I checked the roster on cyclones.com and that was apparently him.
