Conrad lands a Monday double

Four-star LaGrange (Ohio) Keystone tight end C.J. Conrad saw his offer list rise to 15 total schools after offers came through on Monday from Virginia Tech and Ole Miss.
"It is exciting - two really great football teams from two great conferences," Conrad said. "It's always cool to get two in one day, so hopefully I can keep the momentum going."
The offer from Virginia Tech came through Monday morning. Although Conrad was not necessarily expecting it, the Hokies have been in contact for awhile.

"I have been in a lot of contact with offensive coordinator there," Conrad said. "He told me to give him a call and that's when they [offered]. He really wants me to visit."
Conrad does not have any plans to make further spring visits, but is considering taking visits in the summer and could see Virginia Tech then.
Conrad is ranked as the No. 6 tight end prospect in the country, but the Hokies are entertaining other plans for the 6-foot-5, 220-pound prospect.
"They even say I can play more positions other than tight end… maybe some defense," Conrad said.
Conrad has also yet to visit Ole Miss, which offered Monday evening, but through the technological advances in recruiting today he has been able to experience the program and campus.
"I have Facetimed two practices already and got a tour of the whole place," Conrad said. "During practice, the tempo they are running there is crazy. It looks pretty sweet, I want to check it out in-person."
Conrad is also considering Ole Miss for a summer trip. In the meantime he plans to continue building a relationship with their staff.
"Coach [Maurice] Harris is the tight ends coach," Conrad said. "He is always telling me how practice is going and how I'd fit in their offense."
This past weekend, Conrad took what he expects to be his last campus visit of the spring to Ohio State. The Buckeyes are not one of his 15 offers at this time, but are watching the in-state prospect closely.
"I got a lot of time with Coach Hinton, sit in on film, watch practice and got a tour at the end, so that was good," Conrad said. "They are going to come check me out this spring and then I am going to go to the camp"
Prior to Virginia Tech and Ole Miss, Conrad had received offers from Arkansas, Duke, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Akron, Bowling Green, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan.
