With five offers in hand, Quarvez Boulware is already developing a very strong relationship with one school. The standout offensive lineman from Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate Academy also spoke about how he is benefitting from playing a national high school football powerhouse.
"Maryland is recruiting me the most," said the 6-foot-2, 263-pound Boulware. "It's a good connection with the coaches and I'm basically constantly in contact with them. I went to their big man camp a while back. It was a good experience."
The Terps have at least four Friendship Collegiate Academy alumni on their roster and it makes sense that the hometown team would make Boulware a priority.
"Florida State is recruiting me pretty hard too," he said. "Right now I'm not sure how far I want to go but I'm considering it.
"N.C. State, Old Dominion, Ohio and Stanford are also recruiting me," Boulware said. "Old Dominion and Ohio offered me a while ago. Stanford has been talking to me and I hope I get an offer from them soon."
Boulware might check out a few more schools before the season starts.
"I've haven't done many visits recently but I want to take some more this summer," he said. "Hopefully I can get down to Florida State."
Friendship Collegiate Academy has had multiple players go on to play division one football. There were four division one players in the 2013 class, two in the 2012 class and it looks like there will be at least three in the 2014 class. Boulware is very aware of the benefits of having high profile teammates.
"The class ahead of me is helping my class and my class will help the next class and so on," he said.
Boulware was one of the top performers at the Rivals250 Underclassmen Challenge presented by Under Armour.
