OXFORD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Former Ole Miss stand-out, drafted by the Miami Dolphins, Laremy Tunsil, was a no-show at a Dolphins news conference on Friday afternoon.

A team spokesperson said Tunsil had an allergic reaction and wasn't able to attend.

On Thursday night, news of Tunsil being shown smoking from a gas mask bong and then texts between him and an Ole Miss coach were released through his social media accounts, which were apparently hacked.

The video and texts were released by the apparent hacker just minutes before the NFL Draft started last night.

Ole Miss released this statement in response to the situation:

"The University is aware of the reports from the NFL Draft regarding Laremy Tunsil and potential NCAA violations during his time at Ole Miss.  Like we do whenever an allegation is brought to our attention or a potential violation is self-discovered, we will aggressively investigate and fully cooperate with the NCAA and the SEC."
