If 4-star wide receiver prospect Sam Bruce of St. Thomas Aquinas in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida doesn’t want to play football anymore, he’ll definitely have a career as a gymnast.

In the above video, Bruce, who verbally committed to the University of Miami last year, shows his athleticism by doing two back handsprings at last Saturday’s Miami Dolphins South Florida High School Media Day.  He missed the landing on the first attempt, but “stuck-it” on his second.

Bruce, who is the nephew of former NFL star Issac Bruce, has caught 65 passes over the pass two years for nearly 1,100 yards and 16 touchdowns.

With Bruce’s ability to flip, one may wonder if his junior year verbal commitment will stick?

Recently, Bruce told that he will use his official visits to check-out U of M, plus Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Ohio State.

Bruce is ranked #55 in the latest USA Today High School Sports Class of 2016 Composite Rankings.

St. Thomas Aquinas is ranked #8 in our preseason Top 25.
