Playoffs: Elkins Knights vs. Foster Falcons

Evan Fairs scores a touchdown over Elkins' Jared Shirley in the second quarter.

Foster product and current redshirt junior at the University of Kansas Evan Fairs announced this month that he would be entering the transfer portal.

“After a lot of prayers and talking to my family I have decided to enter myself into the transfer portal to further my career and continue my dream,” Fairs said on Twitter.

Fairs played wide receiver with the Jayhawks.

The former Falcon didn’t see much playing time during the 2019 season with one catch for 21 yards.

In 2018, Fairs played in four games at wide receiver before redshirting, He caught two passes for 28 yards, including a season-best 20-yard reception.

In 2017, Fiars played in all 12 games, starting two at wide receiver. He finished the season as KU’s fourth-leading receiver with 24 catches for 335 yards and one touchdown, averaging 14.0 yards per reception.

The NCAA transfer portal allows players to put their name out to other football programs seeking players.

The move is not a permanent move and Fairs does have the option to remain at Kansas if afforded.
