According to reports, the Rebels may be preparing to update Tunsil’s status once they hear from the NCAA:

The junior left tackle came to Ole Miss as a five-star recruit and has done nothing to disappoint the expectations that come with such a touted prospect. Tunsil is projected as a likely top ten selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, if he were to leave school early and declare himself for the draft.
