Ole Miss Releases Statement Following Laremy Tunsil's Comments On Possible NCAA Violations

Laremy Tunsil talks tot he media following the draft.

Nobody expected a social media hacker would steal the show during the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday night, but that's exactly what happened when former Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil's accounts started sharing posts detrimental to his draft experience. 

First, it was his Twitter account tweeting out a video of Tunsil appearing to smoke something out of a gas mask bong. Then it was his Instagram account posting screen shots of text messages between Tunsil and a member of Ole Miss' staff in which they were discussing paying for his mother's rent and utilities - an NCAA violation, if true. 

Ole Miss released a statement Friday morning following the allegations. ESPN's Brett McMurphy shared it on Twitter.

This will definitely be something worth keeping an eye on.
