Tyrann Mathieu will enter 2013 NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu announced today that he will enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

In a statement, Mathieu said, "I am sorry that I was not able to complete my journey at LSU, but I will always support LSU in any way I can. To my teammates, you are my brothers. You have kept me going. I will do my best to make you all proud of me."

Mathieu was dismissed from LSU on August 10th for failing multiple drug tests.

Last month's edition of Sports Illustrated featured a story on Mathieu saying the Honey Badger received benefits that could affect his future eligibility.
 
Last month Mathieu was arrested on a possession of marijuana charge.
 
Mathieu had the option of enrolling at a lower division school, but opted to attend LSU and not play football.
 
Mathieu added, "I am committed to tackling my personal issues and will work to better myself every day as a man first and only then as a football player. I will always consider myself an LSU Tiger."
