Conrad, a native of Illinois who is now a resident of Charlotte, has been the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina since 2001. He has been a federal prosecutor since 1989. He gained national attention in 2000 when he was named the Chief of the United States Department of Justice Campaign Task Force by then Attorney General Janet Reno.
"I'm honored to be nominated by President Bush," said Conrad. "If confirmed I would strive to pursue justice with integrity."
Conrad, 44, played for the Tigers from 1976-80. He was a starter in 1978-79 and 1979-80. The 1979-80 team reached the Final Eight of the NCAA Tournament, the only Clemson men's team in history to reach the regional finals. He is still fifth in school history in assists with 402 and seventh in steals with 141. He took 32
charges in 1978-79, still a Clemson single season record. He played in 79 Clemson victories in his career, second on the all-time list behind Elden Campbell.
In the classroom, Conrad won an NCAA Postgraduate scholarship and was the winner of the ACC's Jim Weaver Award, an honor presented
to the top all-around student-athlete in the ACC, regardless of sport. He also won the Norris Medal at Clemson in 1980, an honor
presented to the University's most outstanding student. After graduation from Clemson he went on to earn his law degree from the University of Virginia.
