ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Former Georgia safety Tray Matthews says he is transferring to Auburn.
Matthews made the announcement on his Twitter account Saturday. Matthews was dismissed from the Georgia team by coach Mark Richt on June 3.
Matthews was the most prominent of four Georgia players arrested in March and charged with theft by deception for receiving double payments on checks issued by the athletic association. The four were accepted this month into a pre-trial intervention program.
Matthews tweeted Saturday he is ''Ready to be an Auburn Man'' and said he is ''very humbled by all that has happened.''
Matthews started six of the eight games he played as a freshman in 2013.
Auburn has not confirmed Matthews has been accepted as a transfer.
