Draft Scout Laremy Tunsil News
10/26/15 - Ole Miss felt like it had a chance to be one of the nationís elite teams this year because it had several of the nationís top players. Problem is itís been tough for the 24th-ranked Rebels to keep them on the field. Offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, receiver Laquon Treadwell and safety Tony Conner are all considered potential first-round picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, but that talented foursome hasnít played one game together all season. Nkemdiche missed Saturdayís game against Texas A&M after suffering a concussion against Memphis last week. He joined Conner _ who tore an MCL in his right knee against Alabama in September _ on the sideline. Tunsil played in his first game this season on Saturday after serving a seven-game NCAA suspension for receiving illegal benefits. The only one of the four who has played every game this year is Treadwell, who came into the game with an SEC-leading 49 catches for 654 yards and four touchdowns. - AP Sports
10/23/15 - The NCAA has ruled that Mississippi left tackle Laremy Tunsil can return to the field on Saturday against No. 15 Texas A&M after a seven-game suspension for receiving improper benefits. That news, which came last week, was a welcome development for the 24th-ranked Rebels, who have lost two of their last three games. The bad news is the NCAA's interest in the Ole Miss athletics department isn't necessarily over. A three-year NCAA investigation - which started with the women's basketball program in 2012 after coaches were fired for recruiting and academic misconduct - remains open. Compliance issues with the football program are also unresolved.
Ole Miss would obviously like some closure to the lengthy NCAA probe, but has had to deal with a series of incidents that may have helped prolong it: Last week, Louisiana-Lafayette released documents about its own NCAA investigation involving former football assistant David Saunders. The school, in its response to the NCAA, said Saunders' issues - which include academic impropriety - might date back to his days at Ole Miss. The response also says that Ole Miss' legal counsel and NCAA enforcement staff interviewed Saunders in 2013. - AP Sports
10/13/15 - Mississippi starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil will miss the Rebels' game Saturday against Memphis in addition to the six games he has already sat out after the NCAA ruled he received several improper benefits. Among the benefits the NCAA says Tunsil received were three loaner vehicles over a six-month period without payment, a four-month interest-free promissory note on a $3,000 down payment when purchasing a used vehicle and an airline ticket. Ole Miss also said the NCAA determined Tunsil "was not completely forthcoming when initially questioned by NCAA investigators regarding the loaner vehicles. He later corrected his account and since apologized."
The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil - a junior who has started most of the past two seasons - will be eligible to return after his seven-game suspension on Oct. 24 against Texas A&M. "I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made and want to thank everyone for their continued support," Tunsil said in a statement released by the university. "I want to apologize to my teammates, coaches and the entire Ole Miss family for how my choices affected our program. This was a learning experience, and I'm looking forward to being back on the field with my team and redeeming myself." Ole Miss announced during the summer that it was working with the NCAA because of allegations that Tunsil had received improper benefits and had illegal contact with agents. - AP Sports
09/12/15 - Ole Miss' Tunsil out vs. Fresno State...Ole Miss sat out starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil for a second straight week because of an ongoing investigation by the NCAA. Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze told ESPN.com that Tunsil would miss Saturday's game against Fresno State. He also did not play the season opener last Saturday against Tennessee-Martin. Tunsil, a junior, was accused by his stepfather, Lindsey Miller, in June of accepting improper benefits from agents. NCAA rules allow Tunsil to meet with potential agents but not accept gifts. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Tunsil has started at left tackle since his freshman season. He was ranked second at the offensive tackle position and fourth overall among prospects for the 2016 draft by NFLDraftScout.com. In July, the NCAA opened an investigation into Tunsil and Ole Miss, which has launched its own internal investigation in response to the allegations. - The Sports Xchange
09/09/15 - Mississippi says starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil will not play in Saturday's game against UT Martin because of an ongoing investigation by the NCAA. Ole Miss said during the summer it was working with the NCAA regarding potential violations after Tunsil's stepfather made allegations that the offensive lineman had improper contact with agents and received improper benefits. Ole Miss sent a release on Saturday morning saying that sitting Tunsil is a "precautionary measure," and the school is "cooperating fully with the NCAA and feel this is the best way to protect Laremy, our football program and the university." Tunsil is considered one of the most important players for No. 17 Ole Miss this season. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior has started at left tackle since his freshman season. - AP Sports
