Ex-UCLA QB Asiantii Woulard earns extra year of eligibility

Asiantii Woulard has had a pretty tough road in his college football career. He was recruited to UCLA as a four-star quarterback in 2013, but because of Brent Hundley’s presence on the team, he didn’t see the field during his first two seasons.

The Bruins landed five-star quarterback Josh Rosen for the 2015 season, which, in turn, caused Woulard to look elsewhere to continue his college career. He decided on South Florida and by June, he was on campus in Tampa.

Woulard tried to get a waiver to be able to play immediately for the Bulls in 2015, but that didn’t go through as planned. According to College Football Talk, however, Woulard has now earned that transfer year back and he will get a good three years to play in South Florida beginning in 2016.

Blessed & thankful, I got my transfer year back, unfortunately I have to sit this fall but I'll have three years to play after this year.

Thank you to @USFBullsRules for helping me through this process & @NCAA for granting me an extra year to play football & not lose one.

Woulard is returning to his home state of Florida where he was a star athlete at Winter Park High School. I’m sure the Bulls will be happy to have Woulard, who was ranked as the number 23 player in the country in 2013.
