Tyrann Mathieu could announce transfer plans on Wednesday.

Quick, call Jim Gray. Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu will reportedly announce what school he will be transferring to on Wednesday. This coming from an anonymous source in a report from the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

"The source said the possibility of Mathieu wearing the Tigers' purple and gold again "wouldn't be happening." Mathieu, a Heisman Trophy finalist and All-American cornerback last season, was kicked of the team last Friday for violation of team policies.

The same source said the reason for the dismissal was multiple failed drug tests and that the plan all along was to transfer to a Football Championship Subdivision (Division I-AA) school, play his junior season and focus on the NFL draft in April. Mathieu was suspended one game last season reportedly for testing positive for synthetic marijuana."

So that report on ESPN yesterday about The Honey Badger staying at LSU yesterday seems not to be true.
