Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Sam Bruce has been dismissed from the program. The former four-star recruit was the team’s top offensive prospect in the Class of 2016.


Miami has dismissed freshman wide receiver Sam Bruce from the football program.

Head coach Mark Richt is moving on from the former St. Thomas Aquinas star due to multiple violations of team rules. In a release, Miami notes that Bruce failed “on his part to meet the clear expectations established to be a part of the Miami football program.”

Bruce, who was redshirting this year after breaking his leg in a basketball accident weeks ago, was a four-star prospect and the No. 24-ranked receiver in the Class of 2016.  The 5-8, 180-pound speedster’s career with the ‘Canes started off rocky, as he was handed a three-game suspension before the season following an incident that occurred toward the end of his high school career. After signing with the ‘Canes this past February, a photo surfaced of Bruce holding a gun. He reportedly used it to scare a former high school student due to a feud over Bruce’s ex-girlfriend.

He was expected to be a contributor to the Miami offense this year after his suspension expired, as he would have been eligible to return for the Georgia Tech game. But the injury changed the timeline on his impact to the team. Now, Bruce will no longer be a part of the team’s offensive plans for 2017.

This fall, Miami is getting good production from Stacy Coley, who has six touchdown catches. But no other receiver has more than one score on the year.

Whether it’s Brad Kaaya or his replacement, Miami’s quarterback in 2017 will be looking for another former high-star recruit to step in for Bruce now that he has been dismissed before ever getting his career off the ground.
