Tyrann Mathieu knows Will Smith suspect Cardell Hayes

Cardell Hayes

Tyrann Mathieu is from Louisiana and was a star football player in the state during high school and college, so it’s not too surprising that he says he knows Cardell Hayes, the suspect in the shooting death of Will Smith.

Mathieu, who played at LSU before moving on to the NFL, tweeted about Hayes on Sunday after learning of Smith’s death:

Mathieu then began to get political talking about societal issues:

Cardell Hayes was a top football prospect in Louisiana for the class of 2005. An LSU Scout page says he was receiving interest from LSU, Florida, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Kentucky, among others. Mathieu didn’t come out of high school until 2010 — several years later — but they’re both a part of the same football-playing community in New Orleans.

Hayes has been charged with second-degree murder for Smith’s death.
