Newnan safety Tray Matthews isn't shy.
He has been especially talkative when it comes to Georgia's 2013 class as the Georgia commitment has informed the Bulldog faithful of when a number of commitments would happen via twitter.
On Friday, however, Matthews' good friend, Auburn (Auburn, Ala.) linebacker Reuben Foster decided to reopen his recruitment with a de-commitment from Auburn in light of the hiring of new head coach Gus Malzahn and the subsequent firing of the entire Tiger staff.
While Matthews is mum in regards to Foster's de-commitment, seeing the Auburn staff lose their jobs is something he didn't want to see.
"Its sad what happened to the coaches (at Auburn)," said Matthews in a text message to UGASports Friday evening. "Because I loved all of them and especially Coach Trooper (Taylor)."
Matthews and Foster have talked extensively in private and publicly about playing together at the next level and have even went as far as to say they are a package deal.
Now that Foster has opened things up in his recruitment, Matthews believes there will be a time for him to get in the five-star linebacker's ear, but right now, it is time to be a friend.
"I know Reuben is going through a tough time," said Matthews. "I'm just going to be supportive and be a good friend. That's all he needs right now. Not a lot of people asking him a million questions."
Foster confirmed to UGASports on Friday morning before his decommitment became public knowledge that Georgia coaches would be visiting his school for the day, and Matthews, who says he will enroll at UGA as soon as he returns from the U.S. Army All American Bowl, says that his past comments still hold true in regards where he will end up and where he wants Foster to end up.
"I'm pretty sure the whole world knows about how I feel about us (he and Foster) playing together," said Matthews.
