Tyrann Mathieu To Make A Decision Wednesday
According to new reports, Wednesday is “D” day. Supposedly , the drama surrounding Tyrann Mathieu‘s football future is going to come to an end.
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Tyrann is going to announce his transfer to an FCS school. If he transfers at all, because ESPN reported that Tryann was also looking at the option to stay at LSU as a student with hopes of playing in 2013.
Hopefully Tyrann will make an announcement Wednesday so we can put this to rest. In the meantime, he did pay a visit to McNeese State University last Friday and is currently being courted by Jackson State and Prairie View A&M as well. If he ends up at a non-FBS University, he can play immediately, if not he’ll sit out a year. So, I guess it all comes down to how bad he wants to play versus how bad he wants to stay at LSU. After all, he was dismissed from the football team not the school.
Tyrann is a true junior and will not be eligible for the NFL draft until after this season. Of course he could always sit out the season and just prepare for the draft, by working on himself and staying out of trouble. If he could manage to clean up his image and stay in school, NFL scouts will more than likely notice his improvement of maturity.
For now, Tyrann is back home in New Orleans to contemplate his next move with full support of his family. His mother Shelia Mathieu told the Times-Picayune on Monday, “We’re going to support him in whatever he decides, and we’ll go from there. We want to gather all the facts, get the information, then give him all the things he needs to get past this and learn from it.”
