Coming off a season where he helped block Fairborn Georgia's Creekside High to a perfect 15-0 overall record and their first football state championship in school history, class of 2015 offensive lineman Venzell Boulware has watched his recruitment steadily take off over the last few weeks. Since the new year, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Kentucky, Ole Miss and South Carolina have all offered the 6'4 270 pound three-star prospect a scholarship.
Earlier this afternoon, the Ohio State coaching staff decided to join the aforementioned universities and dish out their own scholarship offer to the Peach State standout.
"I was on the phone with Coach Kerry Coombs when he told me that I had an offer. He said that he really enjoyed my film and that they are going to need some lineman." Venzell told Land-Grant Holy Land when asked how the offer went down. "Ohio State is a pretty big program so I was very honored and excited to be hearing from them. Urban Meyer is one of the best coaches around so that is a pretty big deal." Boulware went on to add about his offer from the Bucks.

Checking out both the Clemson and Georgia campuses in recent weeks, Venzell would like to make his way north to check out the OSU campus sometime in the future, stating he is still trying to find out a date that works for him to visit Columbus for a unofficial visit.
Not real sure yet when he would like to end his recruiting process, Boulware, the 43rd ranked offensive tackle and 385th overall player in the class of 2015 (according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings) plans to get comfortable with coaches and find a program that offers not just early playing time, but also a chance to win before making a college commitment.
