AMES, Iowa (ABC9 Sports)--With talent and depth, Iowa State's wide receivers could be their best unit this fall. 

But it starts and ends with Quenton Bundrage. The junior tied an Iowa State record last year with nine touchdowns.

"I've been here longer than the other guys and I've been on the field a lot longer," said Bundrage. "So I've stepped up a lot this offseason."

"He's shown the ability to make the big play," added Coach Paul Rhoads. "We want to see him make all the catches and we want to go to him with more frequency because of that."

During the offseason, Bundrage focused on not just improvement on the field, but also becoming more of a leader at the position.

"If I see something that's not correct, I need to step up and say something about it," said Bundrage, "even if I do something wrong."

If Bundrage lives up to his expectations, he could be the first Cyclone wide receiver to go over the 1,000 yard mark since 2005.
