C.J. Conrad enjoying bigger role in 2017

Junior tight end has seen an expanded role this season as he is becoming one of Stephen Johnson’s favorite targets. Through the first four games, Conrad has nine catches for 195 yards and three touchdowns. He had 262 yards and four touchdowns all of last season. Mark Stoops is pleased with Conrad’s contribution to the offense.

“He’s playing well, making some big catches,” Stoops said during Monday’s press conference. “He had another one (called back). Of course we covered him up on the formation, that other big catch that set us up in the red zone. But he’s really playing well, doing some good things, and hopefully we’ll continue to hit him and use him.”

Bradley McKee and Clayton Abernathy discuss Conrad’s impact on Kentucky’s offense this season.
