We knew this was a strong possibility given his hometown of Spartanburg, but this will obviously make for a bizarre Palmetto Bowl on Thanksgiving weekend. Not since RB James Davis's little brother Mike Davis, also a very good running back, chose the Gamecocks over the Tigers as a recruit has there been such a familiar face for Tiger fans cross to the other side of the state rivalry. Feaster recently posted a photo of himself sitting in his new locker wearing #4 in garnet and black. The grad transfer will play this season and have a very good chance of beating out Rico Dowdle and A.J. Turner for the starting spot.

Feaster averaged 5.6 yards per carry last season, and his career 5.99 yards per carry is second in Clemson history behind only Travis Etienne. Feaster rushed for 440 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, including 63 yards and a touchdown against the Gamecocks.

Sophomore CB Kyler McMichael also left Clemson and will play at UNC in 2020, and LB Shaq Smith will play at Maryland this season as a grad transfer.
