MLB Ben Boulware Profile
That's where and when the T.L. Hanna [Anderson] junior picked up the news
he'd been waiting to receive.
"We just started talking in the past month or so. I've been trying to get
up there. I was trying to go to their junior day a couple of weeks ago,
but I was going to the Georgia one," Boulware said in an interview with
CUTigers. "My dad and I went up there [Saturday]. We walked into
coach Swinney's office. We sat down with him and coach Venables for about
45 to an hour and they offered. It was pretty cool."
What was the extent of the conversation?
"They saw my highlight film. They said they loved me game film, better
than my highlight film. I guess my love for the game really helps me out,"
Boulware said. "They talked about baseball and how there's a chance to
play both sports there. And we started talking about family stuff."
His older brother, Garrett Boulware, is a freshman
outfielder/catcher on the Tigers' baseball team.
Most would assume that the younger Boulware to Clemson is a sure thing.
"I'm still trying to look at other schools and see what my options are.
Right now, I'm not really sure," he said.
Boulware has no timeline for a decision.
"I really have no clue, actually," he said.
Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Mississippi, Stanford, Tennessee and UCLA
are among the many schools that have offered Boulware.
He'll visit Alabama this weekend and Notre Dame following weekend.
"They actually told me they were close to offering -- both schools did.
They just wanted me to come down there and see what they have to offer,"
As a junior, he had 181 tackles, four tackles for loss, four sacks, four
forced fumbles, four pass breakups and a blocked punt.
