Gators Taking Notice of Woulard

At 6-4 and 200 pounds Asiantii Woulard certainly passes the eyeball test. Then you see the Winter Park (FL) quarterback throw the ball and you can tell real quick why schools are really interested in the 2013 signal caller. Woulard has really only played one full season at the position, but has eight offers and is starting to really get the interest of the Florida Gators.

The fact that he adjusts and conforms easily to an offense will help Asiantii Woulard this year as his team prepares to install a new pro-style offense. He's a quick learner and gives a good deal of the credit to former Winter Park and UCF star Steven Moffett.

"We have a new offense and I am trying to get adjusted," he said. "It is similar but we are going to do a lot of two backs and I will have to do more under center."

He really has little more than one year of experience at the position and has generated a lot of interest with his limited time behind center.

"I played a little my freshman year and then all of last season," he said before explaining why he is doing so well. "I guess I was just blessed with the tools and just worked really hard over the summer. I train with my quarterback coach Steven Moffett (UCF)."

He talked more on his speedy adjustment to the hardest position to play on the football field.

"Everything was going so fast but it finally slowed down and I see things quicker," he said. "It happened toward the end of last season about 5-6 games in, it all started to slow down and I was able to see things that weren't open because someone was in the area not realizing I could throw them open. I was finally able to see a lot more things and got better."

Woulard already has eight offers from Duke, FIU, USF, Syracuse, Boston College, FAMU, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh. College coaches are hearing about his exploits on the 7-on-7 tour and are now coming by to check him out in person. This includes a future visit this month from Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease.

"About seven college coaches have come by to see me so far," he said. (Former Florida offensive coordinator) Coach Weis was on me before, but I hadn't heard from Florida until the last week. I have now talked to Coach Pease a couple of times. He said he really likes me a lot. He said he will be down to see me this spring, but he hasn't told me when that will be yet. I talked to Coach Travaris Robinson last night."

"They like me a lot and will be down to evaluate me further in the spring. I think he just wants to see me throw the ball live. He likes my release, my feet are always in a good position and that I can run the ball and am a big body.

"Coach Weis saw me throw live. He said I was really raw and without much coaching I was throwing the ball well and setting my feet. He thought I had a great release and was able to perform. He loved me a lot and thought that once I got some coaching that the sky would be the limit.

"I like Florida a lot and I am just waiting on them to pull the trigger (to move things further)."

Things are really heating up huge for the gun slinging guy with all the tools. Woulard says he is nowhere near making a decision on where to sign.

"Everything is wide open right now, he said. "Vanderbilt and a couple of other schools may be on the verge of offering. Florida State, Miami, Mississippi State, Auburn, Alabama, and a bunch of other schools have started to take notice of me."

He is starting to understand what he is looking for in a program.

"I want the school itself to be in a good area," he said. "I want a good academic program, high graduation rate. I want a program where losing isn't accepted. I am not worried about the offense. I know I can adjust to anything as long as it isn't like a Wing-T offense."
