After three years and two national titles with Clemson, running back Tavien Feaster has decided to play out his final year of eligibility elsewhere as a graduate transfer. With only a few weeks remaining until he graduates, he has reportedly narrowed down his choices.
According to The State, Feaster has two choices on his list: South Carolina and Virginia Tech. In an interview with the publication, he stated he has already made an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech to meet with head coach Justin Fuente.
Feaster spoke glowingly about the Hokies, noting that the team does not have a feature back and is actively looking to recruit a running back grad transfer.
“I liked it, I liked the players,” Feaster said. “I got to hang out with the offensive linemen. And in the program they don’t have a feature running back, and running back is the only spot they are willing to take a grad transfer.”
He admitted to having limited contact with South Carolina but said that when he last met with them they said he could help them.
Ultimately, Feaster said that both schools have their “pros and cons” and that he “couldn’t make a decision right now between the two.”
In three years at Clemson, Feaster has rushed for 1,330 yards and 15 touchdowns while averaging 6.0 yards per carry.
He had seven carries for 31 yards and three receptions for 32 yards in the college football playoff, most of which came in Clemson’s 44-16 win over Alabama.
