10: Introducing players who wear No. 10 in the SEC

In this week’s installment of the Kickoff Countdown, we’ll take a look at nine of the most important SEC transfer players for the upcoming season.

DB Tray Matthews

Old school: Georgia
New school: Auburn
The scoop: Matthews is a familiar name to SEC fans, having started six games for Georgia as a true freshman in 2013 before being dismissed for legal issues last year. Shortly after his dismissal, he made the decision to transfer to Auburn and sat out the 2014 season.

DB Isaiah Johnson

Old school: Kansas
New school: South Carolina
The scoop: After graduating from Kansas, the North Carolina native will be immediately eligible to play a final collegiate season at South Carolina. He had two solid seasons for the Jayhawks, accumulating 148 tackles and six interceptions in the last two seasons.

QB Chad Kelly

Old school: East Mississippi Community College
New school: Ole Miss
The scoop: The former Clemson quarterback had several legal hurdles to clear in order to earn a second chance at FBS football with the Rebels. He led East Mississippi Community College to a national championship last season.

RB Alvin Kamara

Old school: Hutchinson Community College
New school: Tennessee
The scoop: The former five-star recruit for Alabama turned heads during spring practice with the Vols. He is expected to team with fellow five-star running back Jalen Hurd to give the Vols a formidable 1-2 punch in the running game.

LB Jake Ganus

Old school: UAB
New school: Georgia
The scoop: After compiling 226 tackles in three seasons as a standout defender for the Blazers, Ganus was forced to find a new home for his senior season when UAB’s football program was shut down. He found a home at Georgia, where he could see significant time at inside linebacker this year.

WR Richard Mullaney

Old school: Oregon State
New school: Alabama
The scoop: Another graduate transfer that will be eligible immediately, Mullaney brings experience to an Alabama receiver group that will be looking to replace Amari Cooper. Mullaney had 83 catches for 1,160 yards and five touchdowns during his time with the Beavers.

DB Tony Bridges

Old school: Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College
New school: Ole Miss
The scoop: Considered one of the top junior college prospects in the country, Bridges flipped his commitment from Auburn to Ole Miss late in the recruiting process. He is expected to be a major contributor for the Rebels immediately, likely starting at cornerback.

RB Jovon Robinson

Old school: Georgia Military College
New school: Auburn
The scoop: Robinson was committed to play for Auburn 0ut of high school, but was not able to qualify academically. Robinson put in hard work over two years at Georgia Military College, became the nation’s top JUCO prospect and returned to Auburn. He could start at running back for the Tigers this season.

DE Marquavius Lewis

Old school: Hutchinson Community College
New school: South Carolina
The scoop: The 6-foot-3, 266-pound defensive end was a sought-after JUCO commodity. The South Carolina native chose to return to his home state and play for the Gamecocks over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Miami and others. He should be an immediate contributor on the South Carolina defensive line.
