T.L. Hanna's Ben Boulware returns a kickoff against Hillcrest.

A bigger stage, but the same result.

For Clemson-bound Ben Boulware, the Under Armour All-America Bowl was a lot like the Shrine Bowl.

Boulware, a middle linebacker from T.L. Hanna High in Anderson, S.C., spent the week turning the heads of coaches and scouts while preparing for the national all-star game. Then he wasted no time in making his impact felt, as he affected the game early and often while serving as team captain for the winning Black squad, which defeated the White 16-3 on Friday at St. Petersburg, Fla.

Boulware, who was named defensive MVP at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas in December, had a PBU to force a punt on the White's first possession of the game, and then on a subsequent series flattened Florida State running back commitment Ryan Green.

Later in the game, Boulware intercepted a pass thrown by Georgia quarterback commitment Brice Ramsey.

Boulware played on the Black team's defense with Brooklyn, N.Y. defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko, who made his announcement for Clemson on national TV during the game. Clemson target Montravius Adams played on the defensive line for the White squad.

Wow, I hope he stays healthy. He is takes his game to another level by emotion and desire. A heck of a team leader. I wonder if he will red shirt next year. We seem to be stacked at LB. if nothing else we should be able to rotate LBs better than we have in years.
I wonder if some of this years LB commits will wind up at FB or RB or TE.

Did Mont Adams actually play? I heard he was injured and couldn't play for team white.

I can't wait for good ol Ben Boulware to suit up for us! Hopefully we'll let him play the MIKE LB so he can get to both sides equally while knowing the defense like a iphone!
