Obviously, just my opinion, but....

I think this is all about Bob Bowman and not about his athletes. Most of those not on scholarship will not pay for a 5th year of school, and so many of his athletes will only get 3 years of competition (and some an abbreviated one at that, i.e. this past season). It really appears that he is mostly interested in the cream of the crop swimmers (those who have legit Olympic aspirations) and he is leaving the rest out in the cold. If the entire NCAA or even Pac12 were doing this, it would be one thing, but for a lone school to do it does not seem appropriate. As an aside, I have a very suspicious feeling about Bowman in general; I still think there will be something untoward that is going to come out about him eventually. His entire reputation is based upon Michael Phelps, and I think Phelps would have been Phelps (or maybe EVEN BETTER) under many other coaches.
