Auburn continued its recent run as "Transfer U" on Saturday afternoon as former Georgia starting safety Tray Matthews announced he would be taking his talents to the Tigers.
Ready to be an Auburn Man. I'm very humbled by all that has happened . Truly blessed. Au family and fans we in this together. WDE!! #Blessed— TriggaTray28 (@Trigga_Tray28) June 14, 2014
Matthews was kicked off Georgia's team last month for a classroom incident. It did not take the former four-star recruit more than two weeks to find his next home in Auburn. Tigers fans are very familiar with Matthews by now: he (No. 28) was helping cover Ricardo Louis in this wild finish:
That pass was thrown by Nick Marshall, who also began his college career as a cornerback at Georgia.
Matthews appeared in six games as a freshman, recording 36 tackles and one interception. He also recovered a fumble.
Georgia has been hit hard by transfers this offseason. In addition to Matthews leaving for Auburn, starting defensive backs Josh Harvey-Clemons and Shaq Wiggins elected to take their talents to Louisville. Both players are sitting out the 2015 season, as well.
