Kentucky senior TE C.J. Conrad accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine game.
Conrad had his best season with the Wildcats in 2018, hauling in 29 passes for 297 yards with three touchdowns. He's battled injuries in his time with Kentucky, but the 6-foot-5, 252-pound tight end is the type of player who could be a better pro than college player; mainly because the Wildcats didn't look his way very often. He'll certainly have his share of eyes at the event in January. Mon, Nov 26, 2018 07:41:00 PM

Kentucky senior TE C.J. Conrad caught two passes for 39 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-7 loss to Tennessee.

Conrad (6'5/252) scored Kentucky's lone points of the game when he hauled in a 19-yard touchdown pass near the end of the third quarter. The Wildcats finished Saturday's game posting just 262 yards of total offense. Through nine games played this season, the senior tight end has caught 23 passes for 187 yards and two touchdowns. Middle Tennessee shows next on Kentucky's schedule as they look to move past Saturday's disappointing defeat.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranks Kentucky TE C.J. Conrad as the top senior at the position in his way-too-early position rankings.

Conrad is followed by USC's Tyler Petite, Boston College's Tommy Sweeney, LSU's Foster Moreau and Michigan State's Matt Sokol among the seniors at the position. Conrad has shown flashes of brilliance in his time with the Wildcats, but the 6-foot-5, 245-pound tight end hasn't put it all together yet, and he missed several games with injuries in 2017; a season that ended with foot surgery. If he puts it all together, he could be one of the first tight ends off the board in 2019.

Lexington Herald-Leader Jen Smith reports HC Mark Stoops said Kentucky senior TE C.J. Conrad has resumed running.

Conrad underwent season-ending foot surgery in 2017 and looks to be doing well with his rehab. He was ESPN's Mel Kiper's No.2 underclassmen tight end entering last season and should have some draft potential after 2018. Conrad had 14 receptions for 270 yards and four touchdowns through eight games in 2017 and will likely play a major role in Kentucky's offence in 2018.

Kentucky junior TE C.J. Conrad will return to school for the 2018 season.

Conrad (6'5/245) is currently on the mend from season-ending foot surgery which he underwent in mid-November. He came into the year with some draft allure, ranking as the No. 2 underclassman tight end in the estimation of ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. over the summer. Conrad had caught 16 passes for 286 yards and a quartet of touchdowns prior to seeing his season cut short last month.

"Unfortunately C.J. will be out for the remainder of the year," HC Mark Stoops announced. Currently, Conrad is the team’s third-leading receiver with 16 catches for 286 yards and four touchdowns. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder, Mel Kiper's No. 2 underclassmen TE prospect heading into the year, has an NFL decision to make. Meanwhile, Greg Hart will take over as starter for the Wildcats.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Kentucky junior TE C.J. Conrad as the No. 2 underclassman draft prospect at his position.

Conrad (6'5/245) was a four-star recruit out of high school. He started 11 of 13 games last season, finishing up the campaign with a 19-262-4 receiving line. The bulk of that statistical action came in the second game of the season, when Conrad caught five passes for 133 yards and three touchdowns against New Mexico State.
