College Football 2012 Top 150 Players: No. 106, Ray-Ray Armstrong, Miami, S
Every day here at Your Best 11, we are counting down to the start of the regular season with our Top 150 players for the 2012 season.
106. Ray-Ray Armstrong, No. 26, Miami, Safety
At 6'4" and 215 pounds, Armstrong has the ideal frame to play the safety spot and he pairs that size with a prototypical skill-set. Armstrong is a guy that has shown true skills at the safety position. He has the range to go sideline to sideline and more importantly, get off the hash and make plays heading towards the white paint. Armstrong is also an effective in the box player. He comes down to force with bad intentions and is not afraid to mix it up.
The biggest issue is that Armstrong only played seven games a season ago, so how he plays for the Canes in a full year in Golden's scheme—without Sean Spence—will be interesting to see. Armstrong is a big ball of talent and he has exhibited flashes of how great he can be, but putting it all together for a full season is going to be the big question mark on the field.
Going into 2012, the Canes will need a big season out of Armstrong and we should expect the rising senior to be ready to live up to expectations. On the team level, Armstrong has to be a strong leader for the Hurricanes and that is something he is capable of doing. Expect him to perform in solid fashion as Al Golden has both Armstrong and Vaughn Telemaque back to anchor the back end of the defense. Armstrong should make the All-ACC team this year and has a great shot at being a first teamer.
As for the All-American teams, he has a tough road ahead of him. Across the nation there are some solid, consistent players vying for the top spots. Armstrong will have to be quite consistent and outperform guys like TJ McDonald and Robert Lester to get his name in the big lights.
