OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi’s athletics department says it has started an internal investigation into potential NCAA rules violations involving starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil.

The Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger reported on Friday that Tunsil’s stepfather Lindsey Miller met with two NCAA officials last week to discuss potential rules violations involving Tunsil. The university’s investigation comes less than two weeks after Tunsil and Miller pressed misdemeanor charges against each other following a fight in Oxford.

Ole Miss said Monday in a statement that it was aware of Miller’s allegations and has “offered the NCAA our full cooperation.”

Tunsil, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior, has been the Rebels’ starting left tackle the past two seasons. He is also considered one of the top prospects for next year’s NFL draft.
