Wide receiver Sam Bruce starred for Florida power St. Thomas Aquinas until February, when he mysteriously withdrew from the school three weeks after signing his letter of intent with Miami. At the time, the Miami Herald reported that he left the school because of a photo in which the teen was shown holding a gun.

Now it appears that the rumors regarding Bruce may have had some validity. According to another report from the Miami Herald, Bruce is facing a two-game suspension to start his Hurricanes career because of the photo in question.

The new Herald report claims that the current thinking is that Bruce should be suspended for two games, but admits that thinking could change as the season nears, depending on Bruce’s behavior. The true level of autonomy within the coaching staff remains unknown, so even if new head coach Mark Richt decides he wants Bruce on the field, school officials could overrule him and maintain a planned two-game suspension.

Of course, the report claims that Richt and his staff fully intend to impose a one or two-game ban of their own volition, potentially bringing an end to the sordid final chapter of a decorated high school football career.
