Ex-Hurricane S Ray-Ray Armstrong will work out at Miami's Pro Day.

Armstrong was dismissed from the team prior to the 2012 season for interacting with a booster. He had hoped to play at the NAIA level this season, but Armstrong was ruled ineligible and took on a coaching role instead. He might draw late round consideration in April, but a tryout during training camp is more likely.

Former Miami S Ray-Ray Armstrong measured in at 6'3" and 1/4th and 227 pounds during the Texas versus Nation all star game.

Armstrong hasn't touched the field since November of 2011, but he could get back into the draft picture with a good week in Dallas. The former Hurricane has a lot of size and likely enough skill to give a sniff from the NFL.

Former Miami S Ray-Ray Armstrong will participate in the Texas versus Nation all star game.

Armstrong hasn't seen the field since November, 2011 while with Miami after his attempted transfer to the NAIA level was denied this season. He was dismissed from the Hurricanes after having illegal contact with boosters. It had previously been reported that Armstrong took on a coaching role at Faulkner College since he wasn't eligible to play.

Former Miami Hurricane and current Faulkner S Ray-Ray Armstrong has been ruled ineligible by the NAIA.

Armstrong was likely dismissed from Miami while ineligible and therefore could not transfer to another NCAA program. That left NAIA programs as possible destinations, but apparently his bid to play in 2012 will fall short. No specifics have been given for the decision as of this time.

Former Miami senior safety Ray-Ray Armstrong will play this season at Faulkner College in Alabama, an NAIA school.

Armstrong and his family will not pursue legal options against Miami despite previous reports. The former Hurricane had multiple off field run-ins with boosters, which ultimately led to his dismissal from the football program. Because his new landing spot is at the NAIA level, it is possible Armstrong was ruled ineligible by Miami prior to his dismissal and therefore could not transfer to an NCAA program. He remains on track to enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Former Miami senior safety Ray-Ray Armstrong is filing an injunction against the school that would allow him practice with the team until the NCAA determines if he has violated any bylaws.

Armstrong was dismissed from the program less than a month ago for undisclosed reasons, but the safety had been on thin ice multiple times due to interactions with boosters. "Miami made a unilateral decision to dismiss Ray-Ray without NCAA process," Armstrong’s attorney, Matt Morgan, said. "We believe Miami is using Ray-Ray as a sacrificial lamb to the NCAA." This move appears to be an attempt to save Armstrong's upcoming draft status and prevent him from having to move to an FCS or Division-II program.

After his dismissal from the Miami football team, senior S Ray-Ray Armstrong will likely transfer to an FCS level school.

Armstrong's goal is to stay on course for the 2013 Draft by not losing any playing time due to a redshirt. He was dismissed a few days ago following an indefinite suspension after Armstrong tweeted about an interaction with a school booster, the third time he was disciplined for a similar infraction. "I’m just trying to gather the information right now, see what we’re going to do moving forward," Armstrong's father said.

Miami senior S Ray-Ray Armstrong has been dismissed from the football team.

This follows Armstrong's indefinite suspension for discussing an interaction with a school booster on Twitter. That infraction may appear small to some, but after the Nevin Shapiro fiasco Al Golden is not messing around. Talent wise, Armstrong may have been the Hurricane's most skillful defender, but he had already been suspended on two previous occasions after dealing with boosters. Armstrong's best option to stay eligible for the 2013 Draft may be to transfer to an FCS-level school to avoid a redshirt season.

Miami senior S Ray Ray Armstrong has been suspended indefinitely by the team after discussing an interaction with a booster on Twitter.

As of right now, Armstrong has not been removed from the team. The infraction may appear small, but with Miami's recent history involving boosters this could lead to more severe punishment. We should see more news coming out quickly due to the Supplemental Draft on July 12, an option for Armstrong if he faces a lengthy suspension or even dismissal. Talent wise, he may be the hurricanes most skillful defender but he has already been suspended twice, once for his involvement with Nevin Shapiro and another last Novemeber for attending a dinner with a public relations executive.
