Will Tavien Feaster transfer out of the Clemson football program when it’s all said and done? It’s still yet to be determined.
Clemson football senior running back Tavien Feaster expressed an interest in transferring for his final year of eligibility earlier before the CFB Playoff began.
Feaster met with the media after the first session of spring practice and basically said that he was “All-In for now,” and said that he is here to just take it “one day at a time, while keeping God first.”
When he was later asked if he was still considering transferring, he gave a somewhat vague answer.
"“For right now, I’m locked in,” Feaster said via The State.com."
Feaster finished the 2018 season with 440 yards on 78 carries for six touchdowns. He suffered through some injuries, but continued to battle and saw playing time, sharing snaps with Adam Choice behind Travis Etienne.
All Clemson football fans should want Feaster to return for his senior season.
Last year, he was the best receiving option out of the backfield. He did a very good job in that respect and continued to improve on his pass-protection. Feaster also ran with more explosiveness compared to his sophomore season.
Now, it seems that he is at his best.
If Feaster so chose to stick around with the Clemson football program, I think he could see much more playing time. Dabo Swinney has proven over time that he rewards players that stick it out. We’ve seen it in recent examples of Adam Choice and Trevion Thompson.
Feaster will, without a doubt, get some playing time and would have a chance to be a leader on the team, kind of like Adam Choice was last season.
Since he is supposed to graduate in December, there is some speculation that Feaster could play in four games and then redshirt and grad-transfer to another program for his final year of eligibility.
I don’t think you’ll see him make a final decision on what to do until after the spring, but there’s no doubt that I’d love to see Feaster return. He is a very talented player and would contribute greatly to this 2019 Clemson football team.
But, at the same time, he’s got to do what’s best for him. You have to respect the decision he chooses to make no matter what. It certainly will be interesting to see how he performs this spring and how this all shakes out.
