Ole Miss issues statement on Tunsil, NCAA allegations

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

Allegations made by Lindsey Miller, the stepfather of Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, regarding potential NCAA violations have been looked into internally by Ole Miss athletics officials.

In a statement released Monday afternoon, the internal investigation started last week. It says the NCAA was offered full cooperation.

“We take the obligations to the NCAA and the SEC very seriously, and we will continue to educate, monitor and enforce all applicable rules. Any other reports are speculation until the process is complete.”

Miller’s stepfather has alleged improper benefits given to Tunsil stemming from his initial recruitment to Ole Miss. Miller’s version of the story involving his arrest, and the charges levied by Tunsil and his mother has been the only one recorded publicly on the matter. That is expected to change on Friday as the two meet parties in a courtroom for the first time in regards to the ongoing legal case.

    PA…keep us all up2date on the goings on. There have been some serious accusations made against Tunsil. I personally do not believe them.

    I do not believe these accusations because of the source and the timing. However, When an investigation is done, and it must be done, you never know what you’ll find under the rocks.

    Now we find out that Lindsay Miller was arrested for domestic violence against a former spouse. The man is not trustworthy and unfortunately for Mr. Miller…he has more than likely lost his ticket to a luxury life with Laremy’s mom.
