The 2017 tournament will take place at the Dan Magill Tennis Center in Athens, Georgia, from May 24-29.
Hagar currently owns a 20-15 overall singles ranking and a No. 48 national ranking. He went 11-11 at No. 1 singles for the Irish this season and was 7-11 against nationally ranked opponents. His best win of the season came on Senior Day on April 23 in a straight-set victory over then-No. 3 Petros Chrysocos.
