Georgia and new coach Tom Crean have landed a commitment from Tye Fagan, a 3-star combo guard out of Thomaston. Fagan is the first player to commit to Georgia since Crean was hired last month.
Fagan, with the aide of a video, announced his decision on Twitter.

Ranked the No. 16 combo guard in the class of 2018 by 247Sports national composite rankings, the 6-foot-3 170-pound Fagan chose the Bulldogs over Ole Miss and Middle Tennessee State, among others. Fagan originally committed to the Blue Raiders on Sept. 12, 2017 but withdrew his commitment after coach Kermit Davis left for the job at Ole Miss.
As a junior, Fagan averaged almost 22 points per game and his coach at Upson-Lee, Darrell Lockart, had encouraging words about the young player.
“We haven’t found anybody in (Class) 4A that can stop him as far as him scoring,” Lockhart said.
