Boulware Starting Early

Friendship Collegiate (Washington D.C.) has a history of producing talented players and that trend will continue in the class of 2015. Sophomore offensive tackle, Quarvez Boulware, already holds offers from North Carolina State and Maryland, and he discussed those school and more with the TurtleSportsReport.



Friendship Collegiate (Washington D.C.) offensive tackle Quarvez Boulware may only be a sophomore, but with two early offers his recruiting process is beginning to heat up.

"Lately things have been picking up and I have been talking to a lot of coaches," said the 6-foot-4, 275-pound Boulware. "I have been talking to Maryland the most, and Florida State and Penn State more lately,"

Boulware has already been to College Park, attending Maryland's junior day Feb. 23, and was impressed with his visit.

"It was a good visit. I got to go to the Clemson (basketball) game and see the campus and locker rooms," said Boulware. "It was a big campus but I talk to my [former] teammates who play there and they say it is a really good campus."

Besides catching a basketball game and getting a tour of the facilities, Boulware got a chance to check out Maryland's uniforms.,

"I love the Under Armour uniforms," said Boulware. "I got to try on a black one. I really like the tight fit."

One thing that stood out to Boulware on his visit was his conversation with O offensive line coach Tom Brattan and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley.

"They [Brattan and Locksley] talked to me about getting better as a football player, and (becoming) a better man, too," said Boulware. "I really liked that they seem like great role models."

Even as a sophomore, Boulware has a mature perspective about choosing the right program "Academics will be important," said Boulware. "I know that will help me get through life. I am thinking about study business management."

While Boulware's offer from Maryland came last month, N.C. State offered the sophomore last November, before the Wolfpack's new coaching staff was hired.

"I have not had as much contact with N.C. State since they got a new coach," said Boulware. "I have been in more contact with Maryland and I have been hearing from Penn State and (assistant) coach Sal [Sunseri] from Florida State."

Boulware does not have any visits planned in the future but says he hopes to get out to Maryland for a practice this spring.
