Miami football has dismissed perhaps its most recognizable remaining player, safety Ray-Ray Armstrong, the school announced Wednesday morning. This comes on the heels of rumors that he and tackle Seantrel Henderson were to be suspended.
Just days ago, he was named to the Bednarik Award watch list, which goes to the nation's top defensive back after the season. Last year he finished third among Miami's returning defensive backs in tackles, picking off four passes in the last two seasons.
Converted quarterback A.J. Highsmith was listed as next behind Armstrong on the post-spring depth chart.
The exit continues another rough offseason for the Canes, which sort of began when multiple players were suspended last offseason due to the Nevin Shapiro ordeal. A mass exodus of NFL Draft early declarations and now this, and Miami's depth is becoming a bigger concern by the news item.
