2nd Gear Popping out when downshifting

Sup guys having an issue here where only when i try to down shift to second it pops out and this is occasional, but if i slow down to like 5-15 mph it won't pop out. It doesn't grind like a synchro but it will make a horrible noise like the gear itself is grinding if i try to hold it in while letting the clutch out above 5-15 mph. Would the shift fork being messed up cause this problem? If so why only in second gear? I don't have issues downshifting or up-shifting on any other gear. I had the clutch assembly replaced about 1 and a half months ago in which I've have had the car for 3 months now. Though this issue has been around since before the replacement clutch. It's an 06 with 37,XXX miles on it. Any thoughts on what it could be?
