Report: Former LSU star Mathieu in rehab
NEW ORLEANS – Former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu entered a drug rehabilitation program in Houston after being dismissed from the Tigers, according to a TV report.
Fox 8 in New Orleans reported that Mathieu’s adoptive father, Tryone Mathieu, said that the 20-year-old star cornerback and punt returner known as the “Honey Badger” has been at the Right Step recovery center and is being counseled by former NBA player John Lucas.
Tyrone Mathieu said his son is committed to restoring his health and won’t play football until he is confident that his rehab is complete. That might rule out the possibility of Mathieu transferring to a school at the Football Championship Subdivision level and playing this season, after which he would be eligible for the NFL Draft.
