Ashton Hagans, a five-star point guard prospect out of the 2019 recruiting class, has decommitted from the Georgia Bulldogs.
Oddly enough, this comes only a few days after Georgia head coach Mark Fox went on a rant about the scandal rocking the NCAA.
Fox, who is often noted as one of the few coaches in big boy hoops most presume to be actually clean, is sick of everything happening, but only because he believes schools and coaches are going to yet again receive a pass.
“I’m disgusted,” said Fox on Saturday. “I’m disgusted with how people have treated our game. It’s absolutely disgusting.”
It is worth noting that Fox has long been an advocate for major reform in college basketball.
“It starts with our coaches, and then you ask how the NCAA has handled it,” Fox said. “The NCAA is made up of member institutions. How are the institutions handling it? That’d be my first question. How are they handling it? Putting their head in the sand and looking the other way? I’m past anger, sadness. It’s just disgusting, and we’re really hurting the game, and the game has been so good to everybody.”
As for Hagans, according to ESPN, he’s the 18th best player in the 2019 class and the No. 3 point guard. There’s no word as to where he plans on committing to next.
Obviously, he will be a highly sought after prospect.
