Earlier today, five-star junior point guard Ashton Hagans decommitted from Georgia. Hagans was only committed to the Bulldogs for two months.

Now, there is more news surrounding Hagans, who had been ranked as the No. 1 point guard in 2019. The blue-chip prospect will reclassify to 2018, according to a new report.

Evan Daniels of 247Sports has reported that Hagans will reclassify to the 2018 cycle. Daniels cites Hagans' AAU coach for the scoop.

If Hagans is now on the market for 2018, it is a game-changer. He originally committed to Georgia over Georgia Tech, Florida State, Kentucky, Tennessee and others. Right now, it looks like Florida State or Georgia Tech could land him if they elect to push for his commitment in this cycle. However Georgia Tech did sign four-star point guard Michael Devoe for next year, which might leave the Yellow Jackets out of the running. Here's a look at Hagans' 247Sports Crystal Ball.

Of course, there's always the possibility that other schools get involved. Like we said, Hagans jumping into the 2018 class is big news.

Currently, he was the No. 8 overall player in the 2019 cycle.
