Previously, Tye Fagan was committed to the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders. But their head coach, Kermit Davis, left for Ole Miss so he reopened his recruitment.
Fagan (6-3, 170) committed to UGA over offers from Ole Miss, College of Charleston, Middle Tennessee, Arkansas State, East Carolina, Georgia State, Mercer, USF, Wofford, and Xavier.
In the 247Sports Composite, Fagan is listed a three-star recruit, the No. 16 combo guard, the No. 9 player in Georgia, and the No. 182 overall recruit for the 2018 class.
Tye Fagan is the third commitment for Georgia’s 2018 recruiting class. Forwards Amanze Ngumezi (four-star) and Jojo Toppin (three-star) signed with the Dawgs during the early signing period in November.
