The Bulldogs officially have a new team member.

Just two days after committing to Georgia, commit Tye Fagan officially signed his letter of intent Wednesday.

Fagan is the first commitment of the Tom Crean era and a peach state native from Thomaston as well.

“We are truly excited to be adding Tye Fagan and honored that he chose to be our first commitment as we embark on building our UGA basketball program,” Crean said in a statement. “Tye not only has numerous abilities to impact the game on both ends of the floor and the character and personality to make others around him better, but he also is a pure winner and achiever. He will help bring many, many qualities that we value at Georgia. Any time you can add a championship-winning player and person to your program, it’s great. But I can’t recall ever signing anyone that was 63-0. That’s unique.”

247Sports ranks him as the No. 18 combo guard in the 2018 class and a top 300 player nationally. He also helped lead his high school program, Upson-Lee, to two state titles in his junior and senior seasons.

The 170-pounder who stands 6-foot-3 averaged 25 points per game last season and scored 30 points on six separate occasions.

The first team all-state member joins Amanze Ngumezi and JoJo Toppin as freshmen next season.
