Former LSU teammate: Tyrann Mathieu headed to McNeese State
Tyrann Mathieu’s former LSU teammate, Josh Jasper, appeared to break the news on the Honey Badger’s new team on Twitter early Friday evening.
Jasper is a kicker who graduated in 2011 and spent a week last summer in camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com tweeted that a source told him that Mathieu is looking at McNeese State, implying that the transfer is not yet a done deal.
McNeese State, based in Lake Charles, La., makes a lot of sense for Mathieu, a New Orleans native, given the school’s proximity to home, the Cowboys’ FCS membership (which would make Mathieu eligible to play this season), and the program’s relative strength (the Cowboys have won six conference titles and made the I-AA playoffs seven times since 2000).
