Matt Morgan, the attorney for former UM safety Ray Ray Armstrong, said he is seeking options to have Armstrong reinstated to the Miami Hurricanes football team, but it also exploring the idea of whether or not transferring would be in his clients best interest.
According to the Miami Herald, “Morgan has not filed a written appeal with the university, which would normally precede any legal action.”
Said Morgan, “We’re taking this step by step. Our primary focus is that Ray Ray has the ability to play [major college] football this season.”
If Armstrong were to transfer to a different university, he would have to sit out one year per NCAA rules. Should Armstrong not transfer, he would be eligible to enter the next NFL draft.
Some would argue while Miami is already lacking at the safety position, why not let Armstrong return to the team? Also, would Al Golden allow such a thing? The answer is more than likely, no. Armstrong has had multiple opportunities to right the ship, however, social media, in particular twitter, has been his downfall.
Armstrong, who hails from Sanford, Florida, was a five-star recruit who was ranked the number one safety in the class of 2009.
