Carl Keith "C. J." Fair, Jr. (born September 13, 1991) is an American basketball player who recently completed his collegiate career with the Syracuse Orange in 2014.

Early years[edit]

C.J. Fair is from Baltimore, Maryland and spent his freshman to junior years in high school at Baltimore City College, a public college preparatory school. The Knights were 18-6 in his freshman season. Fair, a Baltimore Sun First-Team All-Metro selection, helped lead City College to a 25-4 record and a berth in the state regional semifinals as a sophomore.[1] He missed his junior season in high school due to a knee injury. Fair committed to Syracuse in 2008 before he missed his junior season in high school with his knee injury.[2] He also received interest from Kentucky, Florida, Louisville, North Carolina State and Virginia.[3] Boeheim believes Fair will be one of the best players out of the Baltimore area some day.[4]

He enrolled at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire for his senior year. In his one season there, Brewster won the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) title and went 35-5, winning their last 13 games of the season. Fair's season high point total was 32 against South Kent.[5]
