Former starting Georgia guard Tye Fagan announces transfer to SEC program
Tye Fagan is staying in the SEC.
If you missed the news, the Logtown, Ga., native and first-ever signee of the Tom Crean era in Athens announced his decision to leave the Georgia program three weeks ago.
“I would like to thank the coaches, the entire staff, my teammates and especially Dawg Nation for making my time here so special,” Fagan said upon his decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal. “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.”
That news was interesting considering Fagan was coming off his best season to date with the Bulldogs after he averaged 9.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists after making 25 starts for Georgia during the 2020-21 season.
Now he’s made the decision to continue his playing career in Oxford as Fagan has announced he is committed to Kermit Davis’ Ole Miss program.
Ole Miss finished the season with an overall record of 16-12 and an SEC record of 10-8. Georgia went 7-11 in SEC play this season.
