The Clemson freshmen numbers were released today and running back Tavien Feaster will wearing No. 28, the first player to do since explosive playmaker C.J. Spiller was in Tiger Town.

Feaster wore No. 28 throughout high school and it seems that the number will come out of retirement for the explosive freshman this season.

You don’t just give a retired number to any freshman.

Just like you didn’t just give No. 4 to any quarterback, the Clemson football coaching staff isn’t just giving No. 28 to any running back. The Tigers believe Feaster is going to be special and make a C.J. Spiller-like impact on the offense.

I’m looking forward to watching him and seeing what he is capable of doing.

Cornerback Trayvon Mullen will be wearing No. 1 and he should be a fun player to watch. I’m also interested to see what Zerrick Cooper- No. 6- will do and if he can unseat Kelly Bryant or Nick Schuessler.

This is a very talented freshman class and you will come to know and love many of these future playmakers.
