Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu will announce his new school on Wednesday, reports The Times Picayune‘s Jim Kleinpeter.

The “Honey Badger,” a Heisman Trophy finalist last season, will transfer after being kicked off the Tigers last Friday, reportedly for repeatedly violating the team’s substance abuse policy. He had been suspended one game last year for reportedly testing positive for synthetic marijuana.

One of Mathieu’s former teammates tweeted that the cornerback was heading to McNeese State, but that has yet to be confirmed. Mathieu is said to be considering other FCS-level schools as well.

He can enter the NFL Draft after this season.

At the end of the day, Tyrann Mathieu will be remembered as the college player most loved by Brent Musberger.  Ol' Brent was borderline creepy/homoerotic in his adoration of Mathieu during the Championship game which LSU lost to Alabama.  Please also note that Mathieu has no true position in the NFL.  CB?  No way.  NFL receivers will have career days against a 5'7" 175 lb. CB.  Safety?  Seriously?  What TE can he cover?  Mathieu will play in the NFL for a few years as a Special Teams player who also tries to play CB in nickel and dime situations.  Full time starter in the NFL?  Get serious.  (Also, this is not "hate" or whatever of Mathieu, just telling it like it is).  If you disagree, please state why.  Thank you.
