Ray-Ray Armstrong's journey into the unknown continues

Former Miami safety Ray-Ray Armstrong's Faulkner University career lasted exactly zero snaps before it was ended Tuesday night.

Armstrong, a five-star high school recruit expected to be the next Sean Taylor, was ruled ineligible to play football this season by the NAIA. In July, Armstrong was kicked out of Miami after reportedly tweeting about meeting with a booster. Armstrong hasn't tweeted again since June. (You're not missing much. He says "lol" a lot.)

Interestingly, the Miami Herald points out that the University of Miami reached out to the NAIA to have his eligibility reinstated, but were turned down.

At Miami, Armstrong started as many games (five) as he spent suspended. He was suspended the first four games of last season as part of an NCAA probe into booster Nevin Shapiro. He was suspended another game last season after dining with a possible agent. It was a poor season for Armstrong in a year he was expected to become an all-conference player.

In 2010, Armstrong flashed his ability and finished third on the Hurricanes in tackles and had three interceptions.

Armstrong's NFL Draft stock was on life support even if he had played at Faulkner this season (the team hasn't had a single player drafted). Now Armstrong, whose college career is likely over, will have to hope he can impress during the offseason process. Expect him to get added to an all-star game starving for publicity. Given his vast background dealing with potential agents, Armstrong shouldn't have trouble finding professional consultation on his next career choice.
