5-star Clemson commit Tavien Feaster signed and faxed his NLI for Clemson on Wednesday morning.
Swinney said during his signing day press conference on Wednesday afternoon that Feaster has been a little banged up his senior high school football season.
"He played with a little shoulder problem all year but will get surgery," Swinney said. "It might put him behind a little bit but he will be OK."
However, Swinney said that Feaster reminded him of former Clemson great C.J. Spiller.
"Didn’t know if I’d ever see another guy like C.J. Spiller but he’s about as close as any I’ve seen."
As a senior, Feaster showed his tremendous skillset with 1,100 yards rushing, 1,000 receiving and 22 total touchdowns.
As a junior, Feaster had 133 carries for 1153 yards and fifteen touchdowns and 45 receptions for 1016 yds and eleven touchdowns despite having an injured shoulder for most of the year. In the 2014 state title game, he rushed for 130 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. He also had five receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown and a 44-yard interception return. He was the state champion in the 100-meter dash (10.59) and 200 (21.29). As a sophomore, he had 171 carries for 1429 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground and 44 receptions for 723 yards and 12 touchdowns.
