Tyrann Mathieu

'Honey Badger'

to Re-Enroll at LSU

breaking news

0903_Tyrann-Mathieu_getty_2LSU football star Tyann Mathieu -- who was kicked off the football team last month -- has decided to re-enroll at the school, this according to a new report.

Mathieu (nicknamed Honey Badger) had weighed several options -- including transferring to a FCS or lower-division school where he could play immediately -- but his adopted father told ESPN he has decided to stay at LSU.

He would still have to be re-instated to the team by head coach Les Miles, but his father previously said Mathieu was going to take this year off from football to focus on his personal issues.

Mathieu was kicked off the team after he reportedly violated the school's substance abuse policy. He checked into rehab shortly after he was dismissed from the team.

Mathieu rose up from relative obscurity to be named the top defensive player in college football last season.

I wish him well in his recovery, academics, and eventual return to football. It took a lot of guts to return to LSU and face this head on. I give the kid credit.

TYRANN MATHIEU definitely has my vote of confidence. I admire what he is doing. Sometimes we have to take a couple of giant steps backwards before we can lunge forward with mucho gusto. He's a superstar athlete and I support him 100 percent. Amen.
