UNC Offers '16 RB

After just four varsity games, Tavien Feaster has received two scholarship offers. North Carolina is the most recent school to offer the '16 running back.

"[Gunter Brewer] said I'm an explosive ‘back who can do many things on the field. He said that by the time I'm a senior, I'll be good and ready.

"It was just a blessing that somebody would take a full interest in me and want me to come join their program."

Feaster spent his freshman year on Spartanburg's (S.C.) ninth grade team. This past offseason, the 6-foot, 180-pounder not only leaped the junior varsity ranks, but became the starting varsity running back. The result: Spartanburg is 4-0. In those four games, Feaster has rushed for 645 yards and seven touchdowns on 85 carries (7.6-yard average), while catching 10 passes for 225 yards and four scores.

A couple of weeks before UNC, Clemson offered Feaster.

"I like North Carolina a lot," Feaster said. "I like them and Clemson a lot. I like North Carolina because of their education – they have a good education program."

Growing up, Feaster says he didn't root for a particular college – despite being an avid football fan.

"I just loved good football," Feaster said. "I just love football."

Feaster will make his first recruiting visit on Saturday when he travels to Clemson. He aims to follow that visit with a trip to Chapel Hill for a game sometime this season.

Earlier in the week, Feaster learned of the UNC offer.

"One day after practice, Coach Miller had told me to come to his office," Feaster said. "He gave me Coach [Gunter] Brewer's number. When I first called him, he didn't pick up. So I called him the next day at lunch. We were talking and he said that he wanted to offer me."

Feaster's conversation with Brewer was fairly lengthy.

"We talked about more things than just football," Feaster said. "He asked me about how my life was going and how my family was doing. He also told me that he wants us to keep in touch."
