USF commit Woulard moves up rankings

USF commit Asiantii Woulard had such an impressive performance at the Elite 11 camp last week, he has moved up several of the ESPN recruiting rankings for the class of 2013.

Woulard is now the No. 1 ranked dual-threat quarterback in the nation, and has moved into the ESPN 150 at No. 146 -- up from No. 195. This news has to be particularly gratifying for Bulls fans, who already have gone through a roller-coaster ride of emotions with Woulard. After the Winter Park, Fla., prospect committed to USF earlier this year, he de-committed and wanted to look around.

He the re-committed to the Bulls last month and put on a huge show at the Elite 11, featuring some of the top quarterback recruits in the nation. Even though he is only going into his second year playing quarterback, Woulard won MVP honors at the camp. That prompted Elite 11 head coach Trent Dilfer to say, "I never thought that he could do what he did. I'm so blown away by it."

As Woulard's stock continues to rise, you can bet USF fans will start to get nervous that bigger programs will continue to recruit him and try to break him from his commitment to the Bulls. But USF really is a terrific fit for Woulard.

There is a major need at quarterback with the imminent graduation of B.J. Daniels, also a dual-threat quarterback. So the opportunity is there for Woulard to step right in as a freshman and win the starting job, without fear of a major offensive change. He's got his entire senior season to play, so we'll see how much Woulard keeps rising up the charts.
