Staying in South Carolina? Former Clemson RB Tavien Feaster being recruited by Gamecocks
Tavien Feaster may no longer play for Clemson but it turns out he could soon be competing against them.
The rising senior running back recently decided to explore his options heading into his final season in college by entering the NCAA transfer portal. So far in his collegiate career, Feaster has racked up 1,330 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground and helping Clemson win two national championships on the field.
After receiving some initial interest from schools across the nation, Wes Mitchell of Gamecock Central is reporting that Feaster has been officially offered by South Carolina. Thanks to the graduate transfer rule, the Spartanburg native would be eligible immediately upon his arrival at his next destination.
The Gamecocks do have some quality depth at the running back position, however, the program did not have a 1,000-yard rusher last season and hasn’t had one since Mike Davis reached that mark back in 2013. If looking for the opportunity to be the lead running back appeals to Feaster, South Carolina potentially makes some sense for the former Clemson player.
