Feaster building relationships

Clemson has made headlines in recent years at the skill positions with the wide receiver spot being especially notable.

DeAndre Hopkins. Sammy Watkins. Martavis Bryant. Mike Williams. Artavis Scott. The list seems like it will never end with incoming freshmen Deon Cain and Ray Ray McCloud.

The Tigers are just awaiting a star in the backfield for what should complete a special offense in the next couple of seasons.

Spartanburg High School running back commit Tavien Feaster is anticipated to be that star.

Feaster recently was in Beaverton, Oregon for The Opening and spent some time with CUTigers discussing what the trip was like.

"It was a great event - very fun and exciting. And the competition was the best-of-the-best. Like they said: guys had to come out and play hard just to make the little plays," said Feaster. "I knew the competition was going to be very stiff. Everybody earned their way there, and they had something to prove."

Feaster noted his favorite drill during the camp saying, "I liked the 7-on-7. I made a lot of guys miss."

The running back was not the only 2016 Tiger at The Opening. Pinecrest tackle Sean Pollard (Southern Pines, NC) and IMG Academy defensive end Rahshaun Smith (Bradenton, FL) were also in Oregon.

"Yeah, we talked a lot. They are some really cool guys. We just caught up on some stuff," said Feaster about Pollard and Smith. "I knew them, but I think we got to know each other a lot better."

As Feaster nears the end of his summer he's locked in on his senior season. He led Spartanburg High to a State Championship after missing the early portion of his season with an injury as a junior. Now he's ready to start his final year strong.

"It feels good to be back healthy, and I'm ready to roll again," concluded Feaster.

The back is 6-feet tall, 195 pounds, and has been timed as low as 4.34 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
