After committing to South Florida and decommitting from South Florida, then recommitting to South Florida before again decommitting from South Florida, ESPN 150 quarterback Asiantii Woulard (Winter Park, Fla./Winter Park) went a different route on Wednesday, as he announced that he will sign with the UCLA Bruins.
Woulard’s second decommitment from South Florida came on the heels of Skip Holtz’ firing in early December. Kentucky and Clemson received January visits, and it appeared that the nation’s top-ranked dual-threat quarterback would remain on the East Coast. But an official visit to UCLA was quickly scheduled for Jan. 25, and following the trip, the Bruins jumped into the lead.
It was fortuitous for the Bruins that Woulard was still available at that time, as UCLA made late runs at local quarterbacks Troy Williams (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne) and Hayden Rettig (Los Angeles/Cathedral), but they were solidly committed to Washington and LSU, respectively.
It looked as if UCLA would finish the 2013 class without a quarterback. But instead, continuing the tremendous run of recruiting success over these final few months, the Bruins will add the nation’s No. 143 player.
What is the impact of Woulard's decision?
