According to Daniel Paulling of The Clarion Ledger, Ole Miss star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil is set to rejoin the team very shortly and thus ending a lengthy offseason saga. Pauling states Tunsil will serve a seven-game suspension after the NCAA determined he received impermissible benefits.
He has already sat out the Rebels’ first six games and is line to play in Ole Miss’ game against Texas A&M on October 24.

“I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made and want to thank everyone for their continued support,” Tunsil said in a news release (per The Clarion Ledger). “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.”
Tunsil, a 6’5”. 305-pound tackle from Lake City, Florida, is one of the better offensive lineman in the country and was an All-SEC performer for the Rebels last season. He is projected to be a high draft pick in the NFL Draft, if he was to come out after the season.
