Robert Nkemdiche issued a formal apology Tuesday, one day after being charged with marijuana possession as a result of his fall at a hotel near Atlanta.

"I want to apologize to Rebel nation, my teammates and coaches for my actions last weekend," Nkemdiche said in statement released by the school. "I made a mistake and put myself in an environment that doesn't reflect who I am as a person."

Nkemdiche is a projected first round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft should he declare and leave Ole Miss.
