First visit to UGA 'Awesome'

Georgia has been in communication with elite junior running back Tavien Feaster for a while and it finally got him on campus. Feaster liked what he saw calling the visit "awesome"...

Tavien Feaster will all but be able to write his own ticket come signing day 2016.

He has speed, great hands out of the backfield, the burst coaches look for, and he is a home-run hitter out of the backfield.

The four-star junior out of Spartanburg (S.C.) had a scholarship offer from Georgia months ago, so he wants to check the Dawgs out. He visited Saturday for the Auburn game and he is happy he did.

"It was awesome," Feaster said about his visit to Georgia. "The game, the coaches, the atmosphere -- I liked a lot there.

"All of that stood out to me and how they treated me stood out to me too. I also liked how everyone believed in the team."

Georgia is a school Feaster has his eye on now. Seeing what it's like in person made an impact on him. He saw not one, but two running backs for the Dawgs go for over 100 yards and not only did he like that, but he likes the coach in charge of his position.

"Coach [Bryan] McClendon is a great coach and he is a funny, cool guy," said Feaster. "I loved the way he used the running backs and how they played well all night."

No leader for the 6-foot, 192 pound junior this early recruiting process. The Scout 100 prospect does have "a lot" of interest in the Dawgs now and he heard something from not only McClendon, but the UGA head coach Mark Richt while he was there.

"The coaches told me I can come in and play as a true freshman. I really enjoyed myself there and I like Georgia."

Feaster is the No. 2 running back and the No. 20 overall prospect in 2016 on Scout.
