Yesterday’s 4-star Tight End commit C.J. Conrad had a Q&A session with the Courier-Journal that is well worth a read. Conrad opened up about his commitment to the Cats as well as the recruiting process. Conrad talked a lot about how Kentucky has really put a stamp on the Ohio recruiting scene, treating it like it’s own home state. Conrad also said one player in particular had a major impact on his decision to commit to Kentucky. Can you guess who?
Drew Barker, of course.
“I think Drew Barker is an absolute stud. He’s going to be really good, and that had a big impact on my decision too— having a quarterback that’s a year older than me and that’s going to have a really good future there. He’s going to be throwing me the ball and getting the offense involved… I liked how the pace of practice went, and that had a big impact on my decision as well.”
Add Conrad to the list of commits/recruits who plan to do their part on the recruiting trail. Conrad said his focus will shift to trying to help get #1 rated RB Damien Harris (from Madison Southern) to commit to the Cats as well.
