Three-star running back Demetrius Fairley had made a commitment in August, but now the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder is having second thoughts. Fairley recently decommitted and is opening things back up.
"I committed to Western Michigan in August," he said. "I decommitted earlier this week and I'm wide open like I never have been before.
"For one, I was anxious to go on the visit this weekend, but Western Michigan decided to move it back to December. That disappointed me as I was looking forward to it. I also feel like other schools took it that I was fully closed and I was always open. Everything slowed down after I committed and I'm having the best season I've had yet, I'm trying to find the right fit for me."
Is Western Michigan still in the mix?
"They are still an option," he said. "They were the first ones to offer me and they have psychology and social work programs that I can major in, that's what I want to major in. As far as the offense, they have told me they plan on running more than they are now."
Fairley is putting himself out there for other schools.
"I'm actually very interested in Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Wake Forest and definitely Clemson," he said. "I get letters of interest from them, but at this moment they want to see highlight film.
"I'm working on my film now and planning to send it out this week."
On the field, Fairley has helped his team to a 7-0 start as he's averaging 11.3-yards per carry.
"I have 758-yards rushing on 67 attempts and nine rushing touchdowns. I also have 103-yards receiving and two touchdowns," he said. "Last year I basically played fullback since we had a senior, but I don't think that's the reason why I'm playing better just cause I'm getting more carries. I took the initiative and I've got a better feel for the game, my vision is better, I'm running harder and I'm more physical."
