Does Tyrann Mathieu plan a return to LSU?

Monday, ESPN reported that the dismissed former Tiger cornerback was considering a return to school. The report said Mathieu would be a student only, and pay his own in hopes of returning to the LSU football team in 2013.

A school spokesman would only say that Mathieu can attend classes. But, the spokesman said beyond that LSU has no comment.

Mathieu, booted off the team Friday for violation of athletic policy, visited McNeese State Friday night.

Nicholls State also asked for a release from LSU, but Mathieu never visited the Thibodaux campus, according to a source.
