The recent player who many fans screamed at the television screen for UK coaches to give the ball to more is returning to Kentucky.
According to a report confirmed by Shawn Smith of Go Big Blue Country, former tight end CJ Conrad has returned to UK as an off-the-field graduate assistant for the 2020 season. A UK spokesperson told Smith that Conrad will be joining the squad as he works on completing a master’s degree in sports leadership.
As a key contributor in both the running and passing game for UK when thrown to, Conrad was on the field in all four seasons he played as a Wildcat (2015-18). He finished his career with 80 catches for 1,015 yards and 12 touchdowns in 42 starts.
Easily the most memorable play of Conrad’s career came in the 2018 season at the end of the game against Missouri, in which he caught the game-winning touchdown pass from UK quarterback Terry Wilson on the last play to steal the victory.
