Quarvez Boulware has committed to Maryland, according to Adam Friedman of Rivals. Boulware is a huge piece of Maryland's 2015 class, giving them a 4-star player anchor that they desperately needed. Outside of Isaiah Prince, Boulware was Maryland's biggest target remaining on the board.
There is some confusion as to whether or not Boulware pulled the trigger for the Terps, with some reports stating that he hadn't yet committed, which caused some confusion. But it appears that he did in fact give his pledge to Maryland.
The 6-foot-3, 283-pound lineman played tackle until his senior season when Boulware's coaches moved him to guard to aid his recruitment. He also takes reps at center during practice, so he's capable of playing either interior spot at UMD.
Two interior line spots are opening up for the Terps this season with left guard Silvano Altamirano and center Sal Conaboy both set to graduate. With just one year of experience at guard in high school and none at center, Boulware is unlikely to start right away and seems a reasonable candidate to redshirt. If not, he'll provide depth all along the offensive line.
Behind four-star prospects Isaiah Prince and Adam McLean, Boulware is the most highly regarded local commit in Maryland's Class of 2015 and adds a bit more momentum to the Terrapins' "stay-at-home" movement. He was always considered a heavy UMD lean and has visited College Park four times since the start of June, including an official visit in December. Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley led the Terps' recruitment of Boulware.
Boulware's coaches at Friendship Academy broke down the interior lineman's skills with Testudo Times earlier this fall.
