Posts supposedly show Ole Miss coaches agreeing to pay bills for star OT

Laremy Tunsil was once projected as the possible #1 overall pick. Minutes before the draft, his Twitter account posted a video of him smoking through a gas mask bong. He fell to Miami at #13.

And minutes after being picked, Tunsil's Instagram account appears to have been hacked.

These are screenshots, in anticipation of the originals being taken down soon.

If true, these would be text messages between Tunsil and Ole Miss assistant AD for football operations John Miller, suggesting that Miller is agreeing to pay Tunsil's bills or directing him to someone who will.

Plenty has been written about how Hugh Freeze brought Ole Miss to the top of the SEC West. If there's fire here—and there appears to be considerable smoke—it could be a cautionary tale for other teams trying to make a similar rise.
