MotSaG Chat with Venzell Boulware- Visit Recap

3star_recruit_iconosuHelmetVenzell Boulware, a 6-4 OT, from Creekside High School in Georgia,  took a visit to Ohio State this past weekend.  He said everything about the visit was amazing and everything just blew him away.  “It was awesome!  I got to visit the school, tour the facilities, and check out the indoor practice field,” said Boulware.  Everything about the atmosphere on campus was just positive and made him feel comfortable.  It probably also helped that his host was fellow Georgian and current Ohio State quarterback, Stephen Collier.  He had good things to say about his visit with Collier, saying, “Friday night I just chilled with Stephen Collier and we got to watch the Heat game.  The next day we went to eat at the Eddie George Restaurant which was really cool too.”  Boulware also mentioned his strong relationship with Coach Warriner as a positive for the trip.  Having a strong relationship with your potential position coach is one of the most important things in recruiting.  We talked about the distance from Georgia and Ohio and he said, “I had such a strong connection there, I was so comfortable even though it is far from Georgia.  Georgia players have also had a lot of success there so that is neat too.”


In terms of his recruitment all together, Clemson was the leader, but that is no longer the case.  Right now he is open to a bunch of schools, and will narrow it down to a top 5 soon, which Ohio State will be on he said.  Right now he is focused on improving his consistency on the field as an offensive tackle.  He also wants to take a few more visits including a trip to California to visit USC and also hopefully coming back to Columbus for a game.  A commitment soon is not likely, but he will commit whenever he feels he is ready.  Boulware is an athletic offensive tackle with a lot of strength.  Clemson was the leader in this race at one point, but now there are a lot of schools that he is open to.  I would still look out for Clemson, but I think Ohio State is right in the race as well.  Having someone host him from the same state in Collier, helped tremendously with being a nice distance from home.  Collier was the right pick to host Boulware.  This is a recruitment that we will have to keep a watch on.
