MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Former Miami safety
Ray-Ray Armstrong has enrolled at Faulkner University and hopes to play
for the NAIA team.

Faulkner coach Brent Parker says
Armstrong will practice Wednesday while awaiting clearance from the NAIA
Eligibility Center.


Miami kicked Armstrong off the team in
July. He was suspended for four games to start last season because he
broke NCAA rules by accepting gifts from a former Miami booster. He
missed another game while the school checked if other violations were
committed when Armstrong had dinner with a friend who works in a public
relations firm that handles professional athletes.

Barker says Armstrong is a solid student
and "we felt like being at Faulkner would be a benefit to him and
potentially our football program."

Faulkner president Billy Hilyer met with Armstrong Tuesday.
