It keeps getting worse for Laremy Tunsil. And this time, Ole Miss could be in serious trouble, too.
The offensive lineman plummeted to the No. 13 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft after a shocking video of him smoking a bong surfaced on Twitter. Tunsil eventually was drafted by the Miami Dolphins, but another controversy surfaced shortly after.
Someone posted on Tunsil’s Instagram account screen shots of a series of texts between the offensive lineman and possibly Ole Miss assistant athletic director for football operations John Miller that hint at the program paying for Tunsil’s rent and his mother’s utility bills. The “Barney” mentioned in the texts could be assistant AD Barney Farrar, but no one knows for certain.
In case the photos are deleted, you can see screen shots of them below.
Tunsil was asked about the allegations in a press conference after he was drafted, and his response only adds to the shocking nature of this story.
These allegations could count as NCAA rule violations and lead to some serious penalties for the Rebels.
