Former Ole Miss offensive tackle and Miami Dolphins draftee Laremy Tunsil had arguably the worst draft night in NFL history, but the drama is far from over.
According to ESPN, school officials determined a text message conversation detailing Tunsil asking Ole Miss assistant athletic director John Miller for money to pay his mother’s utility bill did happen.
“Ole Miss officials have determined that a text message conversation published to Miami Dolphins rookie Laremy Tunsil’s Instagram account during the NFL draft did happen last year, sources told ESPN’s Outside the Lines, but the school is still looking into whether the messages were altered before they were published.”
According to the report, it’s thought a section noting, “See Barney next week,” is a reference to assistant director for high school and junior college relations Barney Farrar.
Farrar told ESPN he did not give Tunsil money, nor did the player ever ask for money.
Tunsil admitted to prior mistakes just after the NFL Draft.
