Is Miami LB looking at the Noles again?

Brouce Mompremier, a 6-foot-0 and 205 pound attacking style linebacker from Miami (Fla.) Edison, grew up cheering for the Seminoles. For the last few months, the South Floridian hasn't listed the Noles as one of his favorites. Has that changed?

"Right now my top list schools are LSU, North Carolina State, Michigan State, Ohio State and Florida State," Mompremier, who had 118 tackles and 12 ½ sacks during his junior season, said.

Part of the reason the Noles has jumped back into the race is because of new linebacker coach Kevin Steele.

"Florida State is one of those schools that's paying attention to me and writing me a lot," he said. "I was trying to make the FSU Camp but something came up. Coach Steele is a a great guy and he doesn't make me feel pressured."

The Edison high school linebacker has been offered by LSU, Central Florida, Kansas State and Florida State. The LSU Tigers could be the team to beat.

"LSU is the team that's kind of standing out," he said. "They were the first school to offer and I can see myself playing for that team."

Mompremier, who is looking for a school that has a winning tradition and one that has his major (Criminal Justice), compares his style of play to former Florida State linebacker Derrick Brooks.

"Like Brooks was in high school, I'm not the biggest guy but I can make the sure tackle and make the big hit. I also have some pretty good speed."

This summer, Mompremier camped at both Miami and Florida. He is also considering camping at LSU next week.
