VT head football coach Justin Fuente announced Wednesday the signing of graduate student wide receiver Evan Fairs. In 25 career collegiate games at Kansas, Fairs had 28 receptions for 392 yards with one TD. A native of Fulshear, Texas, Fairs (6-3, 205) had a breakout season in 2017 when he caught 24 passes for 335 yards, including a 33-yard TD catch at Oklahoma State. He registered a career-high seven catches for 101 yards at Texas earlier that season. In 2018, he played in four games before being sidelined with a knee injury and being redshirted. Fairs played in two games under first-year head coach Les Miles in 2019 with one catch for 21 yards.
