Running back Tavien Feaster is making the rare move of transferring between two schools that share the kind of animosity that the Tigers and Gamecocks do.Feaster, the No. 1-ranked all-purpose back in the country back in 2015 and the top recruit out of South Carolina that year, got caught in an incredibly deep backfield at Clemson. Travis Etienne has emerged as one of the most dynamic backs in college football, making it hard to divvy up the carries to keep everyone happy.When he’s gotten chances, though, Feaster’s been very dynamic. In 2017, statistically his best season, he ran the ball 107 times for 669 yards and seven touchdowns, with 112 yards and a score through the air.Last season, as Etienne really emerged as a star, Feaster was still very efficient but his workload took a step back. He ran for 440 yards and six touchdowns on 78 carries.last_img
