UM dismisses Sam Bruce

UM dismisses Sam Bruce

Peter Ariz
UM announced on Monday morning that freshman WR Sam Bruce had been dismissed from the football team. Bruce was currently missing time with a leg injury and began the season on a 3-game suspension after a picture surfaced of him online holding a gun.

Bruce came to Miami as a 4-star prospect out of St. Thomas Aquinas HS, although he finished his schooling at a charter school in Broward after an incident at STA. He was considered an electric slot receiver prospect who played with flair on the field.

Sources have told CanesInSight that Bruce was not forthcoming about the cause of a leg injury that has forced him to miss time this season. He told coaches he fell off his bike, when in fact the injury was suffered while playing pick-up basketball. That does not appear to be the ultimate reason for his dismissal, but Miami's official statement read, "Freshman wide receiver Sam Bruce has been dismissed from the Miami football 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. We wish Sam well with his future academic and football endeavors."

Not forthcoming is what got AQM and Grace the boot too. When did UM become the Supreme Court?
 
Another South Florida Diva thinking he is bigger than the brand. Let the others learn from this and create value in a roster spot at UM
 
opens a Scholly for a JUCO OT, which we need some kind of bad.

We don't know what else happened. Had to be something new. Just saying that plays into it
 
Makes sense. We are just coming off probation. Must enforce a zero tolerance policy.. on pick-up basketball.
 
Wow, UM not playing games no more.... well if that's the case, start beating fswho motherfvckers

This reads like a eulogy. This is so sad.

Already a thread on this pete
 
What does this mean for recruiting [MENTION=3894]Peter Ariz[/MENTION]. I would imagine not much but is he close to any recruits for 2017 or 2018 we are after?

You mean, opens a scholie for another WR that we will need to recruit.
This is NOT good news.
Let's not kid ourselves.

MR and the Admin are turning the Program into a Police State.

This sucks for recruiting. Kids will look at UM like it's a "1 strike and you are out" program. Thanks, Mark


Recruiter: Don't go to UM.

Recruit: Why?

Recruiter: They will dismiss you for not be admitting that you had sex before you were married.
