It appears that Clemson transfer running back Tavien Feaster is settling into his new college football home.

The Gamecocks new back could certainly elevate the offense in a way it wasn’t last year, as USC struggled to run the ball in the red zone. Feaster brings that added explosiveness that could make the offense downright dangerous.

Feaster arrived a day or two late to fall camp, and it’s taken a bit to get him going in contact situations. On Saturday, Feaster had his first live contact in Columbia, and Will Muschamp was rather impressed.

“He looked good,” Muschamp said. “Caught the ball well, ran the ball well. Had a really nice cut on a touchdown on an inside zone. So, it was good. I thought he was good.”

Muschamp was asked later in the media availability about Feaster’s receiving ability.

“He catches the ball extremely well,” Muschamp said later in the press conference. “He’s like a receiver running routes. He has really good ball skills. But, again, I thought he made some really good cuts on some runs. It was the first live contact he’s had since he’s been here, and I thought he ran the ball well.”

Feaster rushed for 1,330 yards and 15 touchdowns during his three-year Clemson career. Now, he’s trying to have a career year with the Tigers archrival South Carolina.
