Well, we've only heard one side of the story, from someone that wasn't directly involved...but it's hard to imagine Davis would come out of the blue like this if he wasn't certain of what went down.
I think it's an interesting argument actually. If Clemson feels they have better people to play the position, and do not need the services of a certain player, then why can't they let him go? However, on the flip side, the article makes a terrific point about this possibly harming them down the road in terms of recruits from that area, and particularly that school. Will it actually hurt them in the long run?
Personally, I think it was a stupid move if true. From both a personal standpoint and a "business" standpoint...but particularly from a personal standpoint. I'd be outraged if I was a Clemson supporter.
