RB Tavien Feaster Profile
In recent years, Clemson's offense has garnered natinoal
attention for superstars at wide receiver in the likes of Sammy
Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins.
However as Clemson transitions from the reign of
Chad Morris to its Co-Offensive Coordinators Tony Elliot and Jeff
Scott, one huge priority in the 2016 class was establishing similar
star power at running back.
Spartanburg High School junior four-star running back Tavien Feaster
(Spartanburg, S.C.) decided to commit to Clemson on National Signing
Day. Feaster caught up with CUTigers to reminisce on the big day.
"I believe it was the right move for me to commit on National Signing
Day. It was a big day of events, so that's when I thought I should
share the big news," said Feaster.
The junior understands the type of expectations that come with his
name being attached to Clemson.
Ranked as the No. 2 running back in the country, Feaster understands his role in Clemson's 2016 class and beyond.
"Coach Swinney had been telling me I was the centerpiece for the 2016
class. We have a chance to get a great recruiting class, and they can
build around me," he said.
Coming from Spartanburg, Feaster's close proximity to Clemson offers a
familiar feel. "It feels like everyone at Clemson is a family, and
family is very important to me," said Feaster.
When asked about his skills on the field, Feaster says there's one athlete he patterns his game after.
"In the pros, I think I move like LeSean McCoy. I can catch the ball, have good speed and am explosive," he added.
Feaster is 6 feet tall and weighs 195 pounds. He has displayed his speed in being clocked at 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
Last year at Spartanburg, he rushed for 1,153 yards and 15 touchdowns on just 133 carries.
