Like other Kentucky football commits, Ohio tight end C.J. Conrad knows plenty about Madison Southern’s Damien Harris, the nation’s top-ranked junior running back.
“Damien Harris, he is really good,” Conrad said.
While Conrad does not know Harris well, he has a “good” feeling about UK’s chances with him just as Luke Hiers, the nation’s second-ranked center and UK 2015 commit, does.
“I do feel good, but it is hard in recruiting to ever know,” Conrad said. “From what I can tell, he likes Kentucky and we certainly want him in our recruiting class.”
Conrad says he’ll be active on social media selling UK all he can to other recruits like quarterback Drew Barker did with the 2014 recruiting class.
“I am very good friends with him (Barker),” Conrad said. “He is really a good quarterback and really great on social media. I’m not like that, but maybe nobody else is, either. He was really, really good.”
