C.J. Conrad is back in Lexington.

The former Kentucky tight end finished his playing career during the program’s history 10-win season back in 2018 after hauling in a total of 80 passes for 1,015 yards and 12 touchdowns as a Wildcat.

Conrad also played a key role as a run blocker for Kentucky, helping open running lanes for Benny Snell during the running back’s three-year run in Lexington.

Conrad is currently pursuing a master’s degree at Kentucky, which opens the door for him to join Mark Stoops’ staff as a graduate assistant.

Following the end of his collegiate playing career, Conrad was not selected in the 2019 NFL Draft but managed to spend some time on the practice squad of the New York Giants last season.
