Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil will be returning to the team in time for their game with Texas A&M
Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil will be making his return to the Ole Miss Rebels very soon. It was announced on Monday night that the best offensive lineman the team possesses will sit out one more week and he will be back in action on October 24 when they take on Texas A&M.
On a day where new in college football has been coming left and right at everyone, this is one of the stories that might fly under the radar just a little bit. But, make no mistake about it, this is huge news for college football and the Rebels.
With this news, it’s officially that Tunsil will be serving a seven-game suspension. During this time, the NCAA has been investigating Tunsil for a number of alleged improper benefits which included loaner vehicles, rental vehicles and airline tickets. Of course, he didn’t really help matters all that much when he didn’t completely cooperate with the NCAA, but he apologized for that.
Now that he will be rejoining his team, Tunsil had this to say:
"I take full responsibility for the mistakes I made and want to thank everyone for their continued support. 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. The last 10 months have been a physical and mental battle for me, but I love playing this game more than anything else. I want to be here for my teammates who are depending on me to finish what we started together."
Ole Miss currently sits at 5-1 on the season and are third in the SEC West, meaning that they’re not out of it just yet. They’ve beaten Alabama already, so getting their best offensive lineman back for this particular match up against the Aggies is very significant.
