Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Reports say that Tyrann Mathieu is considering sitting out this season of football altogether, and enroll as a student in hopes of re-joining the LSU team in 2013.
LSU officials say Mathieu can choose to return to LSU as a student, but they would not speculate on anything beyond that.
If he is allowed to rejoin the team after this season, he has two years of eligibility remaining and three years in which to use that eligibility.
NBC33's Matt Boudreaux will have more on Mathieu's decision, as well as fan reactions on NBC33 News at 10.
