More than 12 hours after rumors began to circulate that Tyrann Mathieu was visiting the McNeese State campus, officials with McNeese Athletics confirm the rumors to be true.
In a statement released just before Noon Saturday, McNeese State Sports Information Director Matthew Bonnette said Coach Matt Viator met with the former Tiger All-American late Friday evening.
"I received a call from Tyrann after practice on Friday that he wanted to come and meet with us," Viator said in the statement. "We contacted LSU to get permission to talk to him and he arrived on campus later that night. We visited for an hour-and-a-half and then he went back home to New Orleans."
The statement came the day after after a flood of posts on social media sites and sports message boards claiming the visit between Mathieu had occurred. When reached Friday night, Viator and other McNeese officials said they had no contact with Matheiu.
While media outlets reported Mathieu's transfer to McNeese was a done deal, McNeese officials continue to dispute that report in Saturday's statement.
"To McNeese's knowledge, Mathieu has not made a decision on his intentions and there will be no other comments from McNeese about the issue at this time."
