S Cortez Davis Profile
CUTigers caught up with Davis shortly after he got out of school at Mainland High (Daytona Beach, Fla.).
"I heard from somebody else [about Rumph leaving], then I talked to him," Davis said. "He was basically just saying that he had to do what's best for him and his family."
The Scout.com three-star safety doesn't have a problem with his former Clemson recruiter of record going to work for Nick Saban.
"I understand where he's coming from. He wanted to go there, so that was up to him," Davis said. "I'm still going to communicate with him, no matter where I go, because he's a great man. He's a cool coach."
He remains committed to Clemson, but other official visits are going to be taken.
This weekend, Davis will visit Miami. The following weekend is the Clemson official (Jan. 14-16).
After that, he plans to visit Michigan State and Alabama.
Davis and Mainland teammate/Clemson commit Marlin Lane spent time talking about Rumph's job change.
"He's basically saying the same thing I'm saying, but he's going to take his visits, too," Davis said.
