ATHENS, Ga. - Georgia rising sophomore Tray Matthews has been dismissed from the team.

Matthews broke the news on Twitter Tuesday afternoon, saying "I'm sorry UGA family.I swear to God I love yal.I'm crying right now but I won't forget. Love the dawgs.Auburn or Louisville will be my home."

UGA confirmed the news with a release that evening. In an unusually strongly worded statement, head coach Mark Richt said, "We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right."

Matthews played in eight games and started six as a freshman in 2013. He recorded 36 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.
