MotSaG Chat with CJ Conrad

3star_recruit_iconCJ Conrad is everything CFB fans and coaches love about Ohio HS football players. CJ is big and strong and fast. CJ also happens to have a good head on his shoulders and doesn’t play the recruiting game. He puts education as high in his importance list as sports if not higher. He is a the kind of TE Coach Meyer loves but also could develop if his body keeps growing into an excellent OT much like Reid Fragel did under Urban’s coaching. CJ isn’t ranked by any recruiting services yet but after his great showing at FNL last month you can expect that and more offers to happen soon. Here is the interview I had with him hope you enjoy it.
