Miami Hurricanes Dismiss Ray-Ray Armstrong

The University of Miami has dismissed senior defensive back Ray-Ray Armstrong. The school announced the news to the media on Wednesday morning.

Armstrong got into trouble earlier this year when he inappropriately interacted with a booster on Twitter. On June 29, InsideTheU.com reported that the incident was Armstrong suspended indefinitely. A report around that time from the Miami Herald could not confirm rumors of Armstrong's dismissal at that point in time. The school declined to comment in that report.

Losing Armstrong will be major blow to the football team's on-field fortunes this season. Considered one of the top defensive backs in the country, Armstrong was named to the preseason watch list for the Bednarik Award. Without Armstrong, the Hurricanes have fewer than 10 returning starters this season.
