Camp Update: Brouce Mompremier

At 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds, Miami (Fla.) Edison standout linebacker Brouce Mompremier made a late decision to attend Miami's camp and it turned out to be a good choice.

"It's a lot of fun out there," Mompremier said. "I was born to play football so whenever I get a chance to compete with great players, I'm all over it."

The talented linebacker said he's had a chance to work in 1-on-1 drills against some talented running backs.

"There are a few of them that standout," he said. "But the thing is, a lot of them like to talk too much. The only one that I can see that can make plays against anyone is Charlie Jones."

Mompremier talked about what makes the South Dade running back so good.

"He's really quick and he has good hands," he said. "He catches the ball really well and can turn and run in a hurry. Plus, he's real competitive."

The talented linebacker said a few other players have impressed him so far.

"There's a wide receiver from De La Salle [High School in California] that looks like he's ready for the NFL," he said. "I can't believe he's only in high school still. He's probably been tearing it up out there."

Mompremier will return on Monday, hoping for a scholarship offer from the Hurricanes.

"I'm going out there tomorrow and I hope it happens," he said. "If not that's cool but I'd love to be able to walk away from there with an offer. You know that's where I want to play so I'm hoping everything works out."
