Laremy Tunsil’s Salty Stepdad Snitches to NCAA About Everything Ole Miss Gave Them
The 2016 NFL draft will go down in history, not because it was historic in anyway, but because of what happened to Laremy Tunsil just before the draft kicked off. First, a video of Tunsil taking bong hits was posted to his Twitter account before it got deleted. Then his Instagram account was hacked revealing damning text messages between him and Coach Freeze that suggested possible NCAA violations.
Days before the draft, his stepfather, Lindsey Miller, sued him for an altercation they had and he is believed to be the person behind the hacked social media accounts.
Still feeling salty about his step-son, Lindsey Miller spoke with the NCAA for hours and revealed everything they received from Ole Miss during Tunsil’s time there.
“Multiple football allegations are tied to NCAA interviews with Lindsey Miller, Tunsil’s estranged stepfather. During a recent meeting with SI, Miller detailed the extent of the extra benefits that he claims Tunsil and his family received. Miller, a first-hand witness and aggrieved party, says he laid everything out for the NCAA during more than 100 hours of interviews. Among the things Miller says he told the NCAA: Ole Miss had an intricate system in which the school arranged for Tunsil and his family through boosters to get loans, money and free lodging at hotels and residences around Oxford, Miss. He claims he told the NCAA of benefits that spanned nearly three years.
Miller says he told the NCAA that he and Desiree Polingo—Tunsil’s mother and Miller’s now-estranged wife—moved from Lake City, Fla., to the Oxford area in 2014 along with Miller’s two sons from a prior relationship thanks in part to financial assistance from Ole Miss coaches and boosters.
Miller, who was dating Tunsil’s mother during the recruitment and married her in July 2014, says he provided the NCAA with text messages, e-mails and Facebook messages to back up his claims. He showed multiple Facebook and text messages to SI that appear to verify some of the claims in the NCAA Notice of Allegations. He also says he provided his bank and financial records to the NCAA, which helped investigators verify an $800 payment from a booster in August 2014. At one point, Miller says NCAA investigators took his three cell phones to capture all the data.”
Tunsil’s stepdad not only wants to embarrass his stepson, but he wants to completely ruin him as well.
