Kentucky struck gold in Ohio again on Friday as the Wildcats landed four-star tight end C.J. Conrad.…
Conrad's a Cat
Conrad (6-5, 225) is rated the No. 6 tight end in the nation by Scout coming off a juinior season which saw him catch 47 passes for 592 yards and seven touchdowns. He has 20 touchdown receptions the last two years at Keystone.
He picked the Wildcats over Indiana, but also had scholarship offers from programs like Arkansas, Duke, Illinois, Louisville, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Virginia Tech. He is believed to be the top-rated tight end that has committed to UK since Bobby Blizzard in 1999.
Kentucky has been looking to restock its depth chart at tight end. The Cats had only two scholarship players at the position -- seniors Ronnie Shields and Steven Borden, both hybrid players -- during their recent Blue-White Spring Game. Some help is coming this fall in the form of 2014 signee Darryl Long, who, like Conrad, comes from Ohio.
Conrad is UK's ninth commitment in the Class of 2015 and the fourth from the Buckeye State, joining offensive lineman Larry Wells, wide receiver Alex Stump and linebacker Jordan Jones, the latter two who gave their verbals to the Cats earlier this week.
He was recruited by UK tight ends coach Vince Marrow.
Stay tuned to AllWildcats for more details on the Conrad commitment and coverage from Ohio analyst Bill Greene, who was in attendance at Keystone High School today.
