Ole Miss Football: Athletic Department Released A Statement About Potential NCAA Violations Involving Laremy Tunsil

The NCAA may be looking into a situation involving Ole Miss star Laremy Tunsil, after the offensive tackle's stepfather accused him of meeting with agents. On June 27, news broke that Tunsil had been arrested after punching his stepfather, Lindsey Miller, reportedly in an effort to protect his mother. After the incident, Miller is claiming that a meeting with football agents sparked the incident. Head coach Hugh Freeze released a statement on the situation last Tuesday, but with potential involvement from the NCAA, Ole Miss' Department of Athletics has weighed in.

We hope this situation gets cleared up soon. A star player like Tunsil getting in trouble because of a vindictive stepfather would be incredibly unfortunate, especially if Tunsil was in fact protecting his mother, as reported.
