COLUMBIA, SC (TheBigSpur.com) - Former Clemson running back Tavien Feaster entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal on April 25 and he’s been quiet about his future until he did an interview with SportsTalk on Sunday.

Feaster, according to the interview with Phil Kornblut, will take classes this summer in order to graduate from Clemson. He finished up his spring semester at Clemson, which included an internship with Coca-Cola.

Feaster is focused on finishing up his degree work right now, and isn’t focused on his re-recruitment.

“I haven’t really thought about all that yet,” Feaster told SportsTalk. “I’m going to take my time and weigh out all my options and find the best place for me. You’ve definitely got to check the depth charts. I didn’t think I was in a bad position at Clemson but personal reasons are why I left. Definitely got to check the depth chart. Can a team provide what I’m looking for, that’s mainly what I’m worried about right there.”

Even though he’s focused on the classroom, Feaster has been in touch with Gamecocks head coach Will Muschamp along with first-year running backs coach Thomas Brown.

“They are recruiting me like most teams. Obviously, they want to talk to me and see where I’m at with everything,” Feaster said.

“That’s really how it’s been with everybody. Everybody is seeing where my head is and where I’m at with everything. But, I look at it (USC) as a place that’s providing me with an opportunity to better myself and better my future. I haven’t really looked at it from a fan’s aspect because that’s not my job and that’s not what I’m doing it for. That doesn’t really matter to me. What really matters to me is that I go to a place that’s going to use me and play me in the way that I need to be played. Checks all the marks that I need to check.”
