Soon to be Keystone High School junior wide receiver/ tight end C.J. Conrad made the short trip from Lagrange, Ohio to Columbus last Friday to participate in the Ohio State Friday Night Lights camp held at the Horseshoe last weekend. Conrad, a 6-5 225 play maker for the Wildcats, broke down his time spent on the Central, Ohio campus with Land-Grant Holy Land recently, sharing the following:
" Friday Night Lights was awesome, great atmosphere and had a bunch of great players. I talked to Coach Hinton afterwards and he said he liked me a lot and is really interested. He wants to see game film early. Coach Drayton, the recruiting coordinator for my school said he was coming after me. A couple things that stood out I guess was how great the players were, some of the best in the country. I thought I had a very good camp at Friday Night Lights and made a pretty good impression on the Ohio State coaching staff."
C.J. earned many accolades last season including being named First Team All-PAC, All-Northeast Lake District and All-Morning Journal to go along with Division IV Third-Team All-Ohio after racking up over 900 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns as a sophomore last season. Programs such as Toledo and Illinois have already took notice and sent out scholarship offers to Conrad and with a long list of quality schools showing interest in the multi-sport stud, his list of potential suitors should reach double digits in the coming months.
Friday night lights was amazing. Best completion iv ever faced. Now it's time to focus on the season #GOBUCKS— cj conrad (@cjconrad1) July 27, 2013
Conrad stated he is looking for a combination of how he fits in the program, setting and coaches before he makes his future college decision. Friday Night Lights won't be the last time he will be on the field of Ohio Stadium, as he plans to make it back for a Buckeye football game this upcoming season.
