Bronson Massie (b. Nov. 4, 1997) is a young defensive end prospect who played outside linebacker in high school, making him a prime candidate for the rush end/flanker spot once filled by players such as Elijah Lee.
A three-year letter-winner for the Lufkin High School Panthers under head coach Todd Quick, Massie was regarded as the 62nd-best outside linebacker in the class of 2016 by ESPN, while Scout.com rated him the No. 16 defensive end in the state of Texas. He helped Lufkin to earn a 7-4 record and a trip to the state playoffs in 2015.
Massie earned first-team All-District 16-5A honors as a defensive end in 2015, while he was an honorable mention Texas Associated Press Sports Editors Class 5A All-State pick. You can watch his high school highlights below.
He was named to the East Texas Sports Network East Texas Football Super Team after recording 173 tackles and 26 sacks during his three-year career, including an 80-tackle, 10-sack campaign as a senior. He'll likely redshirt.
