On the field, Laremy Tunsil was one of the best players to come through Oxford, helping establish Ole Miss’ latest run for contention in the competitive SEC West. His work on the offensive line, helped the Rebels establish themselves.
Off the field, and since he left the program, it has been a headache for Ole Miss. On Draft night, he said he took money from coaches at Ole Miss, kickstarting a NCAA investigation and causing Ole Miss to get defensive about its program.
Tunsil is both a hero for what he did on the field and perhaps a villain for the chain of events he is about to cause.
It makes the atmosphere in Oxford all the more awkward as mini-camp ended for Tunsil in Miami with his new team, the NFL’s Miami Dolphins after he was taken in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Following the conclusion of camp, Tunsil told Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald he will “probably” work out at Ole Miss this summer with strength coordinator Paul Jackson.
It is unclear whether Ole Miss will allow him to work out at their facility. Tunsil still has family in the area so it is may just be he works out somewhere in Oxford, but not at the Ole Miss facility.
It will be interesting to see how Tunsil is received if he returns to Oxford and how welcoming Ole Miss will be to him as he prepares for his rookie season in the NFL.
