Former Clemson running back Tavien Feaster entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal earlier this month and is busy juggling summer school and football recruiting.
Feaster plans to earn his degree from Clemson this summer so he can be eligible immediately at his new school. He said this new round of football recruiting is not something he’s rushing.
“I haven’t really thought about all that yet,” Feaster said. “I’m going to take my time and weigh out all my options and find the best place for me. You’ve definitely got to check the depth charts. I didn’t think I was in a bad position at Clemson but personal reasons are why I left.”
Feaster said one of the schools interested in him is South Carolina.
“They are recruiting me like most teams. Obviously, they want to talk to me and see where I’m at with everything,” Feaster said. “That’s really how it’s been with everybody. Everybody is seeing where my head is and where I’m at with everything. But, I look at it (USC) as a place that’s providing me with an opportunity to better myself and better my future.
“I haven’t really looked at it from a fan’s aspect because that’s not my job and that’s not what I’m doing it for. That doesn’t really matter to me. What really matters to me is that I go to a place that’s going to use me and play me in the way that I need to be played.”
Other schools reaching out to Feaster include Virginia Tech, East Carolina, Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas. He said he won’t make a decision until he has the chance to visit some of the schools that are interested in him.
