This continues Hairston’s journey of showing colleges what he can do when healthy. His junior season was cut short after only three games when he tore his fibula. WVSN spoke with the class of 2024 running back about his recruitment and his motivation to prove himself about a month ago.

“A lot is depending on my senior season, colleges are waiting to see how I bounce back. I can’t blame anyone for them, but every camp I go to, and every game I play, they will know who Amir Hairston is,” Hairston explained, marrying an understanding of why college programs are not ready to make him an offer just yet and also not letting that get him down.
Hairston went from hearing from school after school, including major programs like Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, to knowing he needed to convince programs all over again. The 5-foot-11 and 176-pound back ran for well over 1,000 yards as a sophomore. He said he spoke with offensive coordinator Chad Scott and was told that WVU will be keeping an eye on him.
Hairston will also be attending the Coalfields & Co 2023 West Virginia Prep Football Showcase located at Morgantown High School on May 6 at 9:00 am.
“It will be a Cinderella story,” Hairston said about his journey back to the field and the success he projects to achieve wherever life takes him after high school.
