Ole Miss, Auburn and Purdue made the cut for Fair, who is from South Bend, Indiana, and is listed at 6-foot-3 and 335 pounds. Last season, he played in all nine games with three starts. He made 21 tackles on the season, including three tackles for a loss and a sack. He also recovered a fumble.
In 2019, he had 36 tackles, five tackles for a loss, a sack, two forced fumbles and two quarterback hurries. He had a career-high six tackles against Rice and at Tennessee, and also posted a career best two tackles for a loss against the Vols.
