Asiantii Woulard, the nation’s No. 1-rated dual-threat quarterback by ESPN, has decommitted from South Florida. This was mere hours after the program fired head coach Skip Holtz on Saturday. This will put South Florida’s recruiting class in a deep mess.
Woulard was the MVP of the Elite 11 quarterback camp, and currently has offers from fourteen other programs.
“I am decommitted from USF, keeping options open until things settle but USF is still in the mix,” Woulard said on Twitter and later confirmed to ESPN through text message. “USF is still being considered, but I have to wait and see what happens with (the) staff. I’m not just (going to) go and don’t even know the coaches.”
The Winter Park (Fla.) High School senior, took an official visit to NC State on Nov. 9 before the Wolfpack fired head coach Tom O’Brien. The quarterback has been dealing with a real coaching carousel in his recruitment. Over the weekend, NC State announced that Northern Illinois head coach Dave Doeren would fill that position.
Woulard initially committed to South Florida in February and then backed off of his commitment in April before recommitting to the program in June. He initially chose the Bulls over Maryland, Rutgers, Syracuse, Purdue and Ole Miss.
Woulard did say he would take more visits, but did not reveal which schools he might be interested in. Woulard initially played wide receiver his freshman and sophomore year of high school before switching to quarterback as a junior. He has a rocket arm, looks to pass before he runs, and has more upside than any other quarterback in his class.
