INDIANAPOLIS, In. (KALB) - Former LSU star running back Derrius Guice claimed on a radio show Wednesday that an NFL team asked him at the Scouting Combine if he likes men and if his mother is a prostitute.

The comments came during a SiriusXM NFL Radio appearance. Guice said the questions were an attempt to get into his head. His full response:
"It was pretty crazy," Guice said. "Some people are really trying to get in your head and test your reaction... I go in one room, and a team will ask me do I like men, just to see my reaction. I go in another room, they’ll try to bring up one of my family members or something and tell me, 'Hey, I heard your mom sells herself. How do you feel about that?’ "
The report came from Pro Football Talk, and it was confirmed by a source that Guice received the questions.
In a statement in 2013, a spokesman for the NFL said "It is league policy to neither consider nor inquire about sexual orientation in the hiring process."
It was not clear who or which team asked Guice the questions.
