ATHENS, Ga. -- Todd Grantham has already pegged where Tray Matthews belongs in Georgia’s defensive scheme.
One of 13 recruits who enrolled at UGA earlier this month, Matthews possesses coverage skills that make him a natural fit to fill departed senior Bacarri Rambo’s shoes at free safety. But Matthews can do much more than play center field at the back end of Georgia’s pass defense.
“He’s a guy that’s a good communicator,” Grantham said. “He can play either safety position because of his size and his physicalness, but because of his athletic ability and his skillset, he would play the position that Rambo played.”
