Palmetto State 'backer picking up offers

Class of 2013 linebacker Ben Boulware (Anderson, S.C./T.L. Hanna) informed ESPN's Craig Haubert that he's received scholarship offers from UConn, Minnesota, Duke and UCLA over the last week.

Stanford, South Florida, and Ole Miss had already offered the 6-foot-1, 225-pound prospect. Auburn, Michigan, Alabama, Clemson, South Carolina and Tennessee are among the other schools showing interest.

Boulware, who is also a standout baseball player, terrorized opponents on the gridiron last fall registering 180 tackles, four sacks, one blocked punt, five forced fumbles and four pass breakups.

The ESPNU 150 Watch List talent also posted some very impressive combine figures last offseason including a 4.17 20-yard shuttle and 30.1-inch vertical.
