Mark Richt kicked Matthews off the team last summer, two months after he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor theft by deception for allegedly double-dipping school-issued financial-aid checks by cashing them twice.
Matthews, a highly recruited DB out of Newnan, played in eight games as a freshman in 2013, finishing with 36 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.
He transferred to Auburn and sat out last season. Wiggins and safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, who also transferred to Louisville, were also a part of the 2013 defensive backfield.
More of Muschamp’s comments on Matthews:
- "Football's important to him. He's constantly in the building watching film, asking questions. Works hard on the practice field."
- "Tray's a very physical player, I saw that in bowl practice, enjoys contact. An instinctive player that's played a lot of football."
Returning starting safety Johnathan “Rudy” Ford said: “Tray has been great, very physical in contact. He’s going to be a great player playing alongside of him. He’s going to help us out a whole lot.”
