Four-star quarterback Asiantii Woulard visited UCLA this weekend. Among the things that impressed him: seeing P. Diddy at the W Hotel, talking to Maurice Jones-Drew and catching sight of the Playboy Mansion.
He won’t officially decide until Signing Day on Feb. 6, but that didn’t stop Trent Dilfer from linking him to Westwood.
The Bruins were a latecomer to his recruitment, but seem to have made up ground quickly. Woulard’s father said recently that the dual-threat quarterback — rated No. 4 in the country by Rivals and No. 1 by ESPN — has zeroed in on UCLA and Clemson as his top two choices. The latter was one of the earliest to chase the Winter Park, Fla., prospect.
Woulard, 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds, only played quarterback his junior and senior years after spending the first half of his high school career at receiver, but has significant upside. He won MVP at the Elite 11 quarterback competition last summer when he was still considered a South Florida commit.
Both Clemson and UCLA offer similar football situations — he would be an understudy to either Tajh Boyd or Brett Hundley — so campus environment could make a big difference.
