Tavien Feaster to enroll at South Carolina

Spurs Up!

Tavien Feaster will be a South Carolina Gamecock after all.

As first reported WACH FOX’s Mike Uva, the former Clemson running back is set to enroll at Carolina following his graduation from the Upstate school, confirming the news on his Instagram page on Monday afternoon.

Feaster joins a crowded backfield for the Gamecocks, but should set off an interesting battle come fall camp with Mon Denson, Rico Dowdle and A.J. Turner already in the running backs room. And for his part, Feaster - who ran for over 1300 yards and registered 15 touchdowns with Clemson - certainly brings talent to the table. How will things ultimately shake out as the Gamecocks look for a reliable RB1 to contribute consistently? That remains to be seen. (Frankly, I thought he’d go to Virginia Tech, but I’ve been wrong before.)

More on this story, along with more on the decision from Feaster and reaction from Gamecocks fans, as the days progress. South Carolina players will report on Thursday for fall camp, which begins on Friday at 9 a.m.
