Starting Georgia guard announces he has entered the NCAA transfer portal
Tom Crean came to Athens with a good amount of hype.
So far, the coach’s tenure running the Georgia basketball program has not lived up to expectations.
Following Georgia’s 14-12 season, the Dawgs went 7-11 in league play (finishing 10th in the SEC), things just got worse in Athens as starting guard Tye Fagan has announced he has entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Fagan is coming off a career year in which he started 25 games, averaging 9.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists for the Bulldogs. Fagan also has the claim to fame to being Crean’s first-ever signee with Georgia, making this decision all the more interesting.
“I would like to thank the coaches, the entire staff, my teammates and especially Dawg Nation for making my time here so special,” Fagan posted on Monday. “I grew so much this season, not only on the court but as a man and I’ll be forever thankful for this opportunity.
“After extensive thought and conversations with my family, I’ve decided that at this juncture I’m going to weigh every option and enter my name into the transfer portal.”
While it doesn’t appear he has completely written off a return to Athens, it does look like the junior is hoping to end his college career on the right now note, even if that means he has to leave Georgia to do it.
