has Clemson as his number one.

One of the nation’s top running backs for the 2016 cycle, the Spartanburg (SC) product has been on Clemson’s radar for a while and he has made multiple trips to Clemson’s campus. That includes spending two days late last week at head coach Dabo SwinneyDabo Swinney

Feaster told TigerNet Tuesday that he likes spending time with Elliott and getting a feel for his coaching style.

“It was a good visit. I got to see how Coach Elliott coaches and get to experience it,” Feaster said. “It was a great thing for me to see. He was kind of relaxed. I know he couldn't coach how he really wanted to, but he gave me a couple of tips and helped me out.”

The 5-11, 190-pound speedster jumped onto the national radar after running a 10.5 second 100 meters last year to claim the state championship, and he’s been clocked as high as 4.4 in the 40-yard dash. As a result the offers have begun to pile up - in addition to Clemson, Feaster has offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida St., Georgia, North Carolina, Penn State, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Feaster made the trip to Clemson with a former Clemson player, and one of the highlights was getting to spend time with both Morris and Swinney.

“Stanley [Hunter] took me down to Clemson and he showed me around. That was good,” Feaster said. “He showed me things that I didn't get to see when I went on my visit. I was able to talk to both Coach Swinney and Coach Morris. Coach Morris told me that he wanted me to come play in his offense. He thinks that it will be good for me. Coach Swinney and I just talked about me coming to Clemson and how it would be. He said that he was 'All In.' “

Feaster will participate in an IMG event this weekend, but the rest of the summer is up in the air as he ponders whether to take more visits.

“I'm going to IMG next weekend. I'll have to see where it goes after that,” he said.

However, he does know which school sits firmly at the top of his list.

“They [Clemson] are my number one school. They have really been recruiting me hard from the beginning,” he said. “They are genuine. They show a lot of love and I appreciate that. You don't get that that often.”

As a sophomore, Feaster carried the ball 194 times for 1,557 yards - an 8 yard per carry clip - and 16 touchdowns. He also caught 50 passes for 746 yards and 12 touchdowns.
