“I am aware of the arrest last night. I am mad and hurt by the poor decision that Sammy Watkins made. He is a good young man who has been a model student, citizen, player and teammate.
“This is a reminder that good people make poor decisions. But, there are consequences for your actions...and there will be in this case.
“I am in the process of gathering the facts and discipline will be determined when I have completed that process.”

Statement from Clemson Men’s Soccer Coach Mike Noonan
“I am in the process of collecting the facts in the case involving Amadou Dia. I am obviously very disappointed. His actions go against the values of the Clemson Men’s Soccer Program and there will be disciplinary action.

Statement from Clemson Athletic Director Dr. Terry Don Phillips
“I was made aware of the arrest of these two student-athletes early this morning. From a departmental standpoint I have been in consultation with both coaches today and will continue to over the next few days regarding this situation.”
