The San Francisco 49ers announced on Tuesday night that former Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware has signed as a member of their practice squad.

Boulware was on a team visit today, passed his physical, and now has signed his official paperwork with his new NFL team.

"The dream continues," Boulware posted on Twitter. "Let's get to work @49ers."

He was cut by the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, September 2 as he had one total tackle during his limited action during the preseason. In a funny twist of fate, the Panthers and the 49ers play in the opening week of the NFL season.

In 2016, Boulware was named to the Jack Lambert Award as the nation’s top linebacker and second-team All-American by AFCA, Football Writers Association, Phil Steele, USA Today and Walter Camp. He was the team leader on Clemson's national title team with 131 tackles in 882 snaps (14 starts) and added 11.5 tackles for loss and four sacks.

Boulware was a two-year starter at linebacker at Clemson and posted 352 tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, five interceptions, 41 quarterback pressures, ten pass breakups, six caused fumbles and four recovered fumbles in 2,131 snaps over 53 games (31 starts) in his career. He had 17 career double-figure tackle games, and Clemson was 16-1 in those games.
