Georgia dismisses safety Tray Matthews

Georgia’s defensive secondary attrition continued Tuesday when the school announced that safety Tray Matthews had been dismissed.

“We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right,” coach Mark Richt said in a statement.

The rising sophomore became UGA’s fourth defensive back to leave the program. Josh Harvey-Clemons was dismissed earlier this year, and Shaq Wiggins transferred to Louisville. Brendan Langley also moved to wide receiver.

Matthews posted 36 tackles with an interception and forced fumble last year, and he flashed tremendous upside. He was one of four players arrested earlier this year for “double-dipping” UGA-issued stipend checks.
