Everywhere William Ulmer went this summer he seemed to impress coaches with his natural athleticism, speed and explosiveness.
And while the assumption might be that Ulmer will end up at a skill position, either corner, safety or receiver, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound junior from Washington (D.C.) St. John's still thinks of himself as a quarterback.
Some of the schools that he camped at this summer gave Ulmer a strong look at quarterback, such as North Carolina. Sources have indicated that many schools still think Ulmer is likely to end up at another position, but he has enough tools and is an intriguing enough prospect to get a look behind center.

St. John's fell in their first game of the season against Friendship this past weekend, with Ulmer totaling 170 all-purpose yards in that contest.
"I felt like we went out there and didn't execute fully as a team," he said. "But it's just got to be all of us coming together. That's not a conference game and we might see them back in the D.C. title game. We had some mistakes here and there. No one in particular. We took it as a team loss. This week we play Loyola and we've got to keep going forward."
Already with offers from Boston College, North Carolina, Maryland and Syracuse, Ulmer knows that list is likely to get a lot longer.
The most recent of those offers came from North Carolina after he camped with the Heels about a month ago.
"They're a growing program," he said. "They have a new coach and I think their philosophy is going to be great. I'm still keeping my options open. It's such a blessing to have four offers going into my junior season. I'm just going to remain humble."
