Miami dismisses freshman WR Sam Bruce
"Freshman wide receiver Sam Bruce has been dismissed from the Miami football program based on multiple violations of team rules and a failure on his part to meet the clear expectations established to be a part of the Miami football program," the school said in a statement obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. "We wish Sam well with his future academic and football endeavors."
The former four-star recruit was a huge commit for the Hurricanes program, as the Florida native was ranked by ESPN as the eighth-best receiver in the 2016 class, and was the 2nd-ranked commit overall in Miami's haul.
Bruce was suspended for the first three games of the season for a gun incident that occurred during his senior year in high school. While he was suspended, Bruce suffered a leg injury that would force him to redshirt for the season.
