I touched base with '15 TE C.J. Conrad last night before he starts his junior season on Friday. Conrad attended Friday Night Lights and he is a guy the staff has a close eye on. The staff wants to see him do a little more blocking before they extend an offer. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound tight end from Lagrange, Ohio has offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Toledo. Here are a few tidbits from our conversation:
* He will be visiting Ohio State for the Penn State game on October 26th. He will also visit Indiana for their game against Missouri. That's all the visits he has scheduled right now, but he plans on going on a couple more this fall.
* C.J. has been in contact with Stan Drayton. He has said they still want to see early film. Coach Meyer called his coach a couple of days ago to discuss him.
* He named a top six of Indiana, Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee. No order and noted that it is very early and his list could change.
* C.J. grew up a Buckeye fan and said it "would be amazing to get an offer from them." He said an offer would definitely put them in his final couple schools, but he would not be a for sure commitment because he wants to see how he would fit in there.
OhioPreps has him rated as the 12th best prospect in Ohio's '15 class and the top tight end. Definitely a '15 prospect to keep an eye on. Here are some highlights:
