DeCody Fagg, who fell shy in his final chance at qualifying academically for Florida State this year, has decided to attend Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va.

Fagg will report to school Aug. 10, according to his father, Don. Fagg, the highly-touted wide receiver from Quincy Shanks High School, decided on Hargrave over Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga.

Don Fagg said his son's goal hasn't changed -- he hopes to earn a qualifying test score and enroll at FSU in January. Fagg recently learned he did not earn a passing mark in his final attempts at the SAT and ACT.

"This is the best situation for him," Don Fagg told TheTerritory Friday. "This will help him mature and get ready (for FSU). I know he's already looking forward to getting back."

DeCody Fagg could have also selected to sit out the fall, retake the tests and enroll at FSU in January if qualified. However, he opted to enroll in school to help prepare for the college entrance exams as well as play football this fall.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Fagg caught 41 passes for 806 yards and 11 touchdowns, rushed 25 times for 210 yards and two touchdowns and was a constant threat on special teams. He also was second-team All-Big Bend in basketball and ran track as well for Shanks.

Fagg was one of three area standouts who were expected to help anchor the Seminoles' freshman class, joining Ernie Sims of North Florida Christian and Antonio Cromartie of Lincoln High School.

FSU players report for practice Aug. 5.
