Per PFF's metrics, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil incredibly posted the highest game Saturday against Texas A&M and DE Myles Garrett than he had in any 2014 game.
PFF gave Tunsil a +4.8 grade for his work against projected 2017 first-rounder Myles Garrett and company. Tunsil was so dominant in his return from suspension that only a second quarter holding call can really be counted as a blemish. HC Hugh Freeze formulated a game plan that helped the offensive line from Texas A&M's pass rush, calling for a series of Chad Kelly screens or quick strikes. Where PFF really lauded Tunsil was in the running game, where he consistently bulldozed the defender in front of him. According to the website, only 10 OTs have posted higher grades against a Power 5 school this year (and merely two came against an SEC team). Oct 27 - 3:57 PM

Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil "looked like he was in mid-season form" versus Texas A & M's Myles Garrett, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observed.

"Some rust was understandably expected from the Ole Miss left tackle, and the coaches gave him plenty of rest throughout the game, but he looked like he was in mid-season form, limiting Garrett for most of the game," Brugler wrote. In December of 2014, the Ole Miss prospect fractured his fibula and dislocated his ankle during the Peach Bowl. With his performance against a stud opponent, his stock should take a bump up. Brugler notes that the top-10 talent "was quick off the snap with tremendous lower body flexibility, sinking in his kickslide to handle speed and absorb power at the point of attack" against the Aggies' Garrett.

Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil's "technique and core strength stood out" in quieting Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett on Saturday, writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Tunsil acquitted himself extremely well in his return from suspension, handcuffing the gifted Garrett. "Tunsil has long arms and quick, strong hands which he used to grab hold of Garrett and lock him up," Rang wrote. "When the 6-foot-5, 255 pound Garrett attempted bull rushes, Tunsil's technique and core strength stood out. Bending his knees properly and keeping his butt down, Tunsil anchored effectively, helping to create a clean pocket for Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly to survey the field." Tunsil is's top-rated offensive lineman.

An AFC scout said Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil could be a top-five pick.

Tunsil's stock obviously wasn't affected by his suspension, which ends this Saturday versus Texas A&M. "A top-10 pick, legit left tackle. And I think he's top five," the scout said. "He's an elite athlete, can move in any direction, any way he wants. He's premier. Easy moving, quick, sudden, explosive, fast. All the athletic traits, he has them all." Another AFC area scout described Tunsil thusly: "A big athlete and one of the more impressive players you'll watch. May be the most NFL-ready player to come out as a junior in a long time."'s Albert Breer passed along that Tunsil has been drawing comparisons to Redskins LT Trent Williams. Not bad company.

One additional benefit of Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil's return is that two starters return to their original positions.

With Tunsil returning to his familiar left tackle post, Justin Bell is on the move back to center while Fahn Cooper returns to right tackle. Rod Taylor and Jordan Sims top the depth chart at right guard and Aaron Morris and Javon Patterson do the same at left guard. "Hopefully we will be able to stay healthy with those guys," coach Hugh Freeze said. "We are very optimistic in getting that crew back together." Tunsil was No. 4 on Mel Kiper’s latest Big Board.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze indicated the offense has been energized in practice by junior T Laremy Tunsil's return.

Tunsil will be in uniform and on the field for the first time this season Saturday against Texas A&M. He was held out for seven games after receiving impermissible benefits. "The offensive practice (Tuesday) was quite enthusiastic and I think he is part of the reason," Freeze said. "He gets a lot of people back to where they were slotted to play. Justin Bell goes back to center, and Fahn (Cooper) goes back to right tackle. We seemed to have a little extra pep (Tuesday), and we guessed that he was part of the reason." The 6-foot-5, 305-pound tackle is ranked by many as the No. 1 OL in the class.

Ole Miss junior LT Laremy Tunsil is eligible to return to the field on October 24 against Texas A&M, the school announced.

Just in time for Myles Garrett. Tunsil has not played in a single game all season, and the NCAA said he must sit out a total of seven contests after receiving impermissible benefits. That means Tunsil is out just one more game, versus Memphis, and then returns to the field. Many rank Tunsil as the top draft-eligible offensive lineman.

Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil gives San Francisco a long-term answer when left tackle Joe Staley hangs up his cleats, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes.

"The San Francisco roster needs to be rebuilt, starting with the offensive line. The right tackle position has been an issue, but Tunsil would fix that as a rookie," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound tackle has top-10 potential if he can prove that he can stay healthy. The Ole Miss prospect fractured his fibula and dislocated his ankle during the Peach Bowl last season.

Ole Miss will likely announce the NCAA's decision on junior T Laremy Tunsil's eligibility next week, according to Laura Rutledge of the SEC Network.

Tunsil has not played in a single game this season after the NCAA started their investigation into possible agent relations or benefits. The NCAA told head coach Hugh Freeze they will pass along their decision next week. Many rank Tunsil as the nation's top offensive lineman.

An NFC scout said he can't see Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil surpassing Notre Dame T Ronnie Stanley even if Tunsil doesn't play one snap this year.

"To be honest, I don't see Ronnie Stanley catching Tunsil on a draft board even if Tunsil never plays this year," the scout said. "He's so talented and technically refined for his age that missing this time won't hurt him like it would have hurt other prospects." Tunsil, of course, is suspended while the NCAA investigates impermissible benefits.'s Lance Zierlein ranks Tunsil as the No. 1 tackle in this class. "However, I must admit that Stanley has shown noticeable improvement with his run blocking, and his pass-protection skills are right up there with Tunsil's," he wrote. "Left tackles with the kind of size, length and skills that Tunsil possesses find themselves taken in the top 10. I would also bet that missing time won't hurt his stock." We see Stanley as the No. 1 tackle.
Oct 7 - 8:57 PM

Despite not having played this season, ESPN's Todd McShay still ranks Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil as the No. 5 overall prospect.

It's a big show of confidence for the suspended (NCAA investigation into impermissible benefits) tackle who fractured his fibula in last year's bowl game. "When he's on the field, Tunsil has great range as a run-blocker," McShay wrote. "The junior projects best in a zone-blocking-heavy scheme because of his mobility." The Rebels are not banking on Tunsil returning this season.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil "demonstrates a Pro Bowl-caliber combination of initial quickness, balance and power," and is still ranked as the No. 3 prospect on Rang's big board.

"Tunsil is coming off major leg injuries and currently is being investigated by the NCAA for multiple rules violations that include accepting improper benefits. He is sitting out the first two games (and perhaps many more) to start the 2015 season. Even with those troubling factors, Tunsil ranks this high on my board," Rang wrote. It's still up in the air, as to when we'll be able to see Tunsil on the field for the Rebels. Moving forward, Tunsil has top-10 potential if he can prove that he's durable.

Ole Miss is "bracing" to not have junior T Laremy Tunsil for several more games during the ongoing NCAA investigation into a possible rules violation, according to Chris Low of ESPN.

Tunsil has been held out of the first two contests for "precautionary reasons," and Low adds a "sticking point" is a loaner vehicle that was kept for an extended period of time. It has been deemed an "extra benefit." The owner of the dealership is a former Ole Miss coach. The news of Tunsil being held out was delayed until gameday in week one. This gives us the feeling of A.J. Green's or Dez Bryant's final collegiate seasons.

Despite missing the first two games as part of an NCAA investigation, Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil still ranks No. 3 on Rob Rang's Big Board.

"He demonstrated a Pro Bowl-caliber combination of initial quickness, balance and power," Rang wrote. The Rebels seem prepared to keep Tunsil out of game action until a resolution is decided in his case. If he's not out there against Alabama in six days, something ominous is afoot.

Ole Miss is keeping star junior T Laremy Tunsil on the sideline for the second straight game for "precautionary reasons," this time against Fresno State.

The NCAA investigation is still ongoing, and it seems Ole Miss will keep Tunsil out of game action until something is decided. This all spurs from Tunsil's stepfather bringing up agent interactions and pressing charges before dropping the case. The early parts of this "non"suspension seem similar to A.J. Green's during his final year at Georgia. It will be telling if Tunsil is held out against Alabama next weekend.
