At 6-3, 205, Fairs is expected to be an outside receiver at Virginia Tech. His best season at Kansas came as a true sophomore in 2017 when he caught 24 passes for 335 yards and a touchdown. He had seven receptions for 105 yards against Texas that season. However, he never caught more than two passes in any of his other seasons in Lawrence.
Fairs injured his knee against Baylor as a junior in 2018 and opted to take a redshirt season. He entered the transfer portal this past February, and he will have one year of eligibility remaining. Fairs is originally from Fulshear, TX, which is just west of Houston.
