Tyrann Mathieu in Rehab for Drug Use, Report Claims

by at . Comments

In the wake of his shocking dismissal from the LSU football team last week, many pundits have been wondering: where will Tyrann Mathieu end up?

The answer, for now at least, is not at a rival collegiate power, however, but in a drug rehabilitation center.

According to WVUE-TV in New Orleans, Tyrone Mathieu says his adopted son (and one of last year's Heisman Trophy finalists), has been at the Right Step recovery center for days and is being counseled by former NBA player John Lucas.

The 20-year old Mathieu is reportedly committed to getting clean and is not giving any thought to transferring or agreeing to return to LSU in 2013 until his health is taken care of.

Known as "Honey Badger," Mathieu was given the boot from LSU's squad on August 10 for what a source told ESPN was a violation of the school's substance-abuse policy.

Just a few months ago, he won the Bednarik Award as the nation's best defensive player as a sophomore, also becoming the first defensive back to be a Heisman finalist since Charles Woodson in 1997.
