Ray-Ray Armstrong wisely returning to Miami for senior season

Arguably no player has torpedoed their NFL Draft stock worse than Miami safety Ray Ray Armstrong.

His father Albert Armstrong told the Miami Herald Tuesday night that his son is returning for his senior season.

"Of course he’s coming back. He loves Miami,’’ Albert Armstrong said. "He didn’t get the opportunity he needed personally this season to step out to the NFL. The [NCAA] suspension hurt. Of course we knew he was NFL-caliber talent and could go in one of those rounds, but we didn’t test the water. Didn’t pursue the NFL at all to see what his status would be. The plan all along was for him to come back, have fun and graduate."

The move by Armstrong is a wise one. Armstrong was suspended the first four games of the season after receiving illegal benefits from a booster. He was suspended another game for having a dinner public relations officials who represent pro athletes. In seven games, Armstrong had 34 tackles and just one interception.
