Miami football dismisses WR Sam Bruce for violations of team rules

Highly-touted freshman wide receiver Sam Bruce is no longer a member of the Miami football program.

“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,” Miami said in a statement, via

“We wish Sam well with his future academic and football endeavors.”

Bruce started his collegiate career by serving a three-game suspension for a violation of team rules before suffering a “non-football injury.” Bruce did not appear in any games for the Hurricanes.
