Elrod connects with Woulard

Winter Park (Fla.) alum and Wake Forest quarterbacks coach Tom Elrod offered his high school alma mater's quarterback Asiantii Woulard Tuesday, May 29.

Woulard said Elrod told him he has a strong arm and the Demon Deacons throw the ball quite a bit.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder, who is rated as a three-star recruit and as the nation's No. 12 dual-threat quarterback by Rivals.com, plans to visit Wake Forest, Ole Miss, Florida, Duke, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and other schools in the coming weeks and months. The most recent visit Woulard took was to Florida State for its spring game.

"[The school I choose must have] good facilities," Woulard said. "I'm going to major in Criminal Justice, so [it needs] a good program in that area. Also, a good area geographically, like where it is on the map. That's pretty much the top [factors]."

"I hope to get a relationship with my strength and conditioning coach and my position coach, because those are two guys I'll be spending most of my time with when I'm there."

He said the size of a school does not matter to him.

Woulard, who cheered for the Gators as a child and has made multiple trips to the Swamp, claims 12 scholarship offers and said Florida is close to offering and maybe Vanderbilt too. He wants to choose a school by August. The Sunshine State prospect added none of the schools pursuing him have an edge and his recruitment is open.

He passed for 1,800 yards and 16 touchdowns, and rushed for 700 yards and 11 touchdowns in Winter Park's pro-style spread attack.

"[College coaches say] I take control and I throw the ball really well, and I have great mechanics," Woulard said.

He said his strengths as a quarterback are accuracy, reading defenses, mobility and elusiveness. Woulard said it does not matter type of offense a school plays; that he will adjust accordingly.
