Ohio State Football Recruiting: 4-star OG Venzell Boulware has Buckeyes in top five


The Ohio State Buckeyes’ 2015 recruiting class has received a huge boost in the month of June. Urban Meyer and staff have the class up to 10 commits, with a lot more surely to come over the summer. One of those potential prized recruits is four-star offensive guard Venzell Boulware, who recently named the Buckeyes among his top five schools.

Boulware, out of Fairburn, Georgia, has a plethora of offers from some of the best schools in the nation, and deservedly so.

Recently, Boulware spoke a bit about why he has Ohio State among his finalists as he gets ready to make his college decision, and one of the reasons that he feels so strongly about Columbus is the fact that, while visiting, he felt quite comfortable being that far away from home.

“The fact that I felt so comfortable that far away from home (was big).” Boulware told cleveland.com. “How well they take care of their football players, the city of Columbus and my relationship with all the coaches. Their graduation rate, tradition of the schools and the success of past players that have all attended there.” 

Aside from Ohio State, the 6-4, 290-pound Boulware is also considering Alabama, Tennessee, USC and Clemson. It’ll be tough to pry him away from those southern schools especially, but comfort can end up going a long way in the end.
