Ray-Ray Armstrong Won't Take Miami To Court, According To Report

Former Miami Hurricanes safety Ray-Ray Armstrong has decided to drop any potential legal action against the University of Miami, and will instead transfer to Faulkner University, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Armstrong was dismissed from the team on July 18, which came weeks after speculation that Armstrong would be suspended. Miami's coaching staff was unhappy with the fact that Armstrong discussed "interaction with a booster via Twitter," and eventually opted to dismiss Armstrong from the team.

As recently as last week, Armstrong was considering legal action against the University of Miami that would have allowed him to continue playing with the Hurricanes.

Instead, Armstrong has decided to drop any legal action against Miami, and will play the 2012 season for Faulkner University, located in Alabama. Since Faulkner University is an NAIA school, Armstrong will be eligible to play immediately. Per Schad, Armstrong was told he would be ineligible at an NCAA school.
