Found July 18, 2012 on Down and Distance:
The University of Miami released a statement this morning announcing the dismissal of senior safety Ray-Ray Armstrong. “Armstrong can continue to be enrolled as a scholarship student at UM to complete his degree or the University will grant him a full release should he elect to transfer to another institution,” the release stated. Details as to why Armstrong was dismissed were not given by the university but his problems from the previous season may be the reason. Last year, Armstrong was suspended four games for receiving benefits from former booster Nevin Shapiro. During his recruitment he received $788 in extra benefits. Armstrong followed up his first suspension with another in November after tweeting about dinner with a representative from a PR firm. Armstrong was one of the team’s best players in their secondary. His dismissal will be a big loss for the team but it seems as though the school, or coach Al Golden had enough of Armstrong’s antics.   The post Ray-Ray Armstrong kicked off Miami appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.

Golden, Miami to rely heavily on youth

The purge continues at the University of Miami, where second-year coach Al Golden is getting his own players ready to take the field. And when I say "his own" players, I mean the players he's recruited. Problem is, Golden has only had two recruiting classes. Now you start to get the picture.
