It was just over a month ago the Clemson coaching staff received the verbal commitment of one of the top prospects on their 2016 recruiting board in Spartanburg RB Tavien Feaster.

Considered a long-time lean behind the scenes to the Orange and White, Feaster still provided a jolt to Clemson's recruiting efforts by going public with that pledge. Since then, Clemson has added commitments from some of the top prospects in the country, many of who were on campus for Saturday's spring game- including Feaster himself.

"It was great," he said. "It was great just seeing all the committed guys and getting along with them and catching up on everything. We had a really good time."

Feaster, who remains firm in his commitment to Clemson, was also amazed by the record crowd on hand as 37,000 fans turned out.

"It just shows the loyalty of Clemson fans," he said. "It was a great atmosphere."

Feaster talked with a number of key prospects Saturday and was hoping to talk more with star QB Deshaun Watson, who continues to rehab from a knee injury he suffered last fall.

"I didn't really get to talk to him this time," Feaster said. "He was always handling his business, but he's a humble guy."

Last year at Spartanburg, Feaster rushed for 1,153 yards and 15 touchdowns on just 133 carries for the state champion Vikings, but he's eyeing even bigger things this year.

"It's all about being a leader," he added. I'm just trying to be the best leader for my team."
