OL Venzell Boulware confirms that he just committed to Miami as a grad transfer on the offensive line. Coming from Tennessee #Canes— Peter Ariz (@PeterAriz) January 10, 2018
Having played in the SEC, Boulware brings good experience to Miami. He started 3 games for Tennessee this season, and appeared in several others.
As noted in the above report, Boulware will graduate from Tennessee this spring, then transfer to Miami thereafter. A redshirt sophomore, Boulware will have 2 years to play 2 at Miami.
Boulware should immediately challenge for playing time on the interior of Miami’s offensive line. His addition will hopefully allow Miami to try freshman All-American RG Navaughn Donaldson at tackle, a position he played in high school.
Miami’s offensive line has taken steps forward in the last couple of years, but adding Boulware is another move to shore up the OL for the Canes.
We’ll have more on this, and other future roster moves, during spring and summer.
