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.
