Probably, after what he saw what they did for Hurt. LSU could be a destination also with them needing a QB with that offense.

?? if I was the kid I’d go to Oregon. They’ll have a better shot at actually making noise in the playoffs than OK will. OK is always over rated to me. They play in the Big 12 which plays no D. They put up 55 points a game but give up 50 routinely.

He knows Wake isnt going to win anything big next year, especially playing in the same division as Clemson so why not transfer to a better program who needs a QB and could make it into a playoff. It all depends o. Wjere he goes but i think heade the toght decision


It’s called quitting on your team if you’re the starter, but

... but, you just don’t like your teams prospects and want greener pastures.

Kinda crappy thing to do for no legitimate reason if you are the starter.

Just because you had success in one program doesnt mean you're going to have it somewhere else. Doesnt mean you are necessarily going to start. Doesnt mean the team you go to is going to have the same success, as there are graduates and your new team has changed. Bloom where you are planted. Every year, NFL teams draft players from teams that didnt win the natty, that are D1, that didnt win a major bowl or even a winning record

This student/athlete has gone to class and is scheduled to graduate/graduated from Wake Forest Univ in 4 years. He prefers to enter graduate school and play football at another school in order to fulfill his dream of playing at the next level. And you make comments like you did above??!!!!!

C’mon man!!!!!!! Don’t be an idiot.........

It’s an opinion, he’s allowed to have one. Wake gave

him a scholarship for 4 years and developed him well over that time. So now he’s quitting and going to “greener” pastures and giving the finger to his school and team.

Sorry, not sorry. He’s quitting on his team.

If he’s the presumptive starter at Wake and he just doesn’t like the prospects because he doesn’t think his team mates are good enough, then what would you call it?

Most guys who transfer do it in order to get to start.

He already has that.

Sounds like he just wants a better team.

I tend to agree. On the face of it is not a good look. I have not dug into it to understand his reasoning.

I guess we will see who is the idiot. If hes transferring for the graduate degree, good for him. If we see him interviewing for okla or some other big name, well, hes quitting his team. Like I said, NFL teams draft players who have played in all sorts of situations, not just the ones who have played on playoff teams. Jerry Rice came from a div II school ( mississippi valley st? Or some such place dont remember). You dont have to be on the greatest team, you have to fit their need and be good( or ryan leaf). So dont give me your crap justification on leaving. If its for graduate school, good for him, his education is the most important thing he'll get. If hes transferring to play at a "better" school, hes a quitter. Period.

Article sez he’s a graduate transfer, so seems to me he can do what he wants. Maybe decision is also about what he wants to study in graduate school. I know I’ll always regard DF as a Graduated Tiger Man, even though he played for the Gamecocks.

While I see both sides of the coin on the portal and I'm not sure who DF is, Feaster may have graduated but he'll never be a "Tiger Man" aka "Clemson Man" because to be true to that statement, you could not, should not and would not leave CLEMSON, for any reason, and go to South Carolina and play against your teammates. It tarnishes his legacy (or better yet destroyed it), it was an insult to CJ who graciously lent his number to Feaster (oh yeah, the number that was not necessary to transfer to South Carolina) and he walked out on his "team".

Say what you want about players looking out for their "future" and what not. The reality is that less than 1% of collegiate football players sniff the NFL and even less make any real money or last long enough to save any of it. The player's future is brighter with the bonds that are built with coaches, teammates and alumni......"networking"!!!! To my knowledge not a single starter or player with meaningful snaps has bettered their draft stock or had a more productive year by transferring. I may miss an outlier but Kelly B, Scott Pagano, Feaster, etc. all failed to improve their stock. Now others, like Zerrick Cooper, Hunter Johnson and even Kelly B (who was not going to play) all moved on to see more playing time and it was obvious that they would get more time if they left. I totally understand all of them, and the unnamed others in the same situation, leaving for that reason. If you play and want to see time on the field, then it often makes sense and I understand not wanting to just sit on the bench all the time when you have the talent to play the game at the collegiate level at another stop. South Carolina, however, is not a stop that I can accept and I'm not alone.

Feaster on the other hand, was ill advised and made a very poor choice. Most folks realized that the day he signed with South Carolina but others had to see the result for themselves to finally accept it. Others yet, may still be blinded, but the reality speaks for itself. Subpar team, terrible season, mediocre rushing results for Feaster and bottom line.... he quit on his team. The game is a TEAM sport. The team could have used him this year. He would have had a bunch of touches and much better stats. Dabo would have promoted him as an NFL back and at worst he could have had a future with the coaches and/or alumni. Many of us alums would never hire him now and I'll bet he will never coach as a grad assistant or anything else at Clemson during Dabo's tenure.

Happy New Year to all of you Tiger Fans!!!!!!

Given Feasters blocking skills he would have seen a lot of touches this year and would probably be a key piece in this CFP

Missing a lot of exposure opportunity


UVA is gonna need a QB

but, if I was him I'd probably consider Oklahoma or LSU first.

$$$$$omebody has got in his head and told him with his skill set he could take his draft stock up several spots if he goes to their school. I am sure he knows where he's headed right now! Jamie Newman was everything for Wake.

But, Suratt being gone and maybe Washington, I don't blame him.


FSU needs a QB also with new coach


Posted: Dec 31, 2019, 7:57 PM
 

I could see him go to FSU. Heck UGA is gonna need a QB as well.

Dont get me wrong, I only watched him a few games, but what I saw was less than impressive. Part of it was scheme imo because of the crazy way they mesh on RPOs is asking to get blown up against decent defenses. Part of it is that they feasted on bad teams, but lost to anyone with a pulse even before Surrat and Washington got hurt. And part of it were just some really bad reads. He can throw ok, but his WRs were a huge part imo. I think Sam Hartman is a very capable starter for them next season.
