Four-star guard to visit Florida

Depth along the offensive line is pretty nonexistent right now with the Florida Gators. Landing a big class of players in the offensive trenches is very important to the program at this time. 4-star lineman Quarvez Boulware is a big time prospect the Gators are recruiting hard and the big lineman from Washington (DC) Friendship Academy is expected to visit the Gators next month.

Quarvez Boulware is the 14th ranked offensive guard in the country according to Scout and is high on the list of a lot of programs right now. Florida is one of those programs and assistant Brian White has made sure to let Boulware that they are really interested. He says the feeling is mutual.

"I do have interest in Florida," Boulware said Wednesday evening. "After the NIKE camp (Coach White) gave me a call and said they were really interested in me and what I did there. He said he likes the way I play and how physical I am and what I do overall."

Boulware should be making a swing down south to visit some schools and will lead off with visiting the Gainesville campus.

"I am supposed to be going down there this June," he said. "I don't have an offer yet, but I think I am pretty close to one. I am coming down for sure on June 10. I am going to Florida, Florida State, Auburn, and Alabama."

Boulware says he has a lot to learn about Gainesville and the Florida program, but that he hears very good things from former teammate Jalen Tabor who showed up on campus in January after enrolling early from the 2014 class.

"I don't know much, but I know they have a great program from what I hear from Jalen," Boulware said. "He said he likes it a lot and can't get enough of it. I am looking for atmosphere and how they do things down there."

Boulware says he his list of favorite programs changes a lot so it is difficult to pin him to a top five list at the moment.

"I don't really have a top five," he said. "I am kind of in and out with (the schools)."

An US Army All-American nominee, Boulware is waiting to find out if he will actually be in the game. He says that his hand and foot work are what separate him from the rest.

"I would say I am technical," he said. "I am really big on technique, so that is one of the things I like to stay on top of."

In no hurry to make a decision, he will make several trips both officially and unofficially before making a final decision.

"I think I want to make a decision during the season, after I take my officials," he said. "I want to take all five officials."
