Feaster wants full experience

Feaster wants full experience

There has been some chatter about 2016 Scout 100 running back Tavien Feaster committing soon, but for now, that is not his plan. He wants the full experience...

Tavien Feaster does have a No. 1 school, but he is not ready to commit to pull the trigger, yet.

"Clemson is my top school, but I am not going to commit soon," said Feaster. "I want to experience everything before I commit to a school. I want to see different places, take it all in, and have the full recruiting experience."

If he wants the full experience, he will get it. Feaster is one of the top juniors in the country regardless of position and he will be able to name his school.

The 6-foot, 193 pound running back out of Spartanburg, S.C. currently favors the in-state Tigers. He has for some time.

"Clemson was the first school to offer me, I have been there a lot, and they continue to recruit me as hard as anyone.

"They (Clemson coaches) come out and see me when they can, they talk to me when they can, and they are doing a great job recruiting me.

"I have been to camps at Clemson, I have been to games at Clemson, and it is a big family-like atmosphere there. I like that a lot. I feel at home when I am there. It all-for-one there."

The Tigers hold the lead for the No. 2 running back in 2016 on Scout, but there are plenty of other schools in the mix.

Two of those are Auburn and North Carolina, each had Feaster on their campus this summer."Both Auburn and North Carolina have picked things up with me and it was nice at each school.

"Auburn runs the same offense that we do in high school and they really made me feel wanted there. They showed me around, I spent time with the coaches, and it was nice to be on their campus.

"At UNC, I really liked the campus. I like how the coaches are there too -- they are very straight forward, honest, and I like that. It was cool to workout there."

Feaster hopes to be back in Clemson, S.C., Auburn, Ala., and Chapel Hill, N.C. among other college cities this fall. He wants to see as many games as he can around his own schedule.

"I want to get back to the schools I saw this summer, but I want to see schools like Alabama, Florida, Florida State, and Tennessee too.

"I know I need to take my time with my decision, so that is my plan. I am not in a place to commit to Clemson or anyone else yet.

"I want to get out this fall, see more schools, see how the different staffs treat everyone, and find the right school for me."
