BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Former LSU star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu has enrolled at LSU for the fall semester, even though he cannot play for the Tigers this season and will be eligible for the 2013 NFL draft.

LSU coach Les Miles has declined to say whether Mathieu has any future with the Tigers. He says he's focused on Washington's visit this Saturday night.

Speaking at his media luncheon on Tuesday, Miles would say only that he believes Mathieu is "making some quality decisions for himself" by addressing some personal issues and coming back to school exclusively as a student.

Mathieu, a 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist, was kicked off LSU's football team Aug. 10 for failed drug tests.

Miles says Mathieu also has "made some really difficult decisions" and LSU wishes him the best.
