Breaking News: Father Says Tyrann Mathieu Will Enroll At LSU Tuesday
Reports are coming in that Tyrann Mathieu aka “The Honey Badger” will enroll at LSU tomorrow.
Tyrone Mathieu announced in late August that Tyrann would not play football this season and was working on his issues with former NBA player John Lucas. Seems now the issues maybe resolved and Tyrann is ready to go back to school.
ESPN is reporting that Tyrann Mathieu will enroll at LSU on Tuesday, his adoptive father Tyrone told ESPN’s Joe Schad on Monday.
“Tyrann is working on discipline, maturity and character,” Mathieu said then. “He’s making life adjustments.”
LSU coach Les Miles kicked Mathieu off the team in August for what a source told ESPN was a violation of the school’s substance abuse policy.
Between his dismissal and Tuesday’s enrollment, Tyrann Mathieu had been at the Right Step recovery center.
Mathieu briefly considered transferring to a FCS or lower-division school where he could play immediately, and visited McNeese State and Nicholls State, but instead decided to stay at LSU. It is unknown whether Miles would consider reinstating him in the future. Mathieu will be eligible to enter the NFL draft in 2013.
Will the Honey Badger play football this year or is he hoping to go to LSU for a year and get back on the team next season or go to the NFL? Stay tuned folks!
