Winter Park (Fla.) three-star dual-threat quarterback Asiantii Woulard backed off his commitment from South Florida on Tuesday afternoon. He explained the reasoning behind that decision.
"It is not that I don't like the school any longer or something like that, it is more that I just want to make sure it is the right decision," Woulard said.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound signal-caller explained that he has been uneasy about his commitment since making it.

"When I made the original decision, I felt it was premature but I kind of felt pressure from my coaches because they were talking about how schools don't take more than two quarterbacks from a class and that makes sense," Woulard said. "So they were telling me when I originally committed that I should go ahead and do it now. So I did it. I wasn't so sure about it once I did it."
Woulard leaned heavily on his father in making the decision to re-open his recruitment.
"Since then I have spoken with my dad about it and we have talked about it a lot and he was saying that I need to make sure it is the right place," Woulard said. "He didn't want me to sign there and think about what could have been or what might have been."
The Bulls remain in the picture for his services, but will be joined by numerous others.
"I will continue to look at USF," Woulard said. "Oregon is also in the picture. Honestly whoever comes pretty much. When I committed I had calls from multiple schools, schools like Oregon, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Auburn and others and they would tell me stuff like they would offer or they were interested but they saw that I was committed. For me it was kind of like a feeling of what could have happened, and I don't want to feel that way.
"I want to feel like I made the right decision," Woulard added. "I don't want to have any doubts."
Woulard mentioned an interest in visiting Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Oregon, South Florida, and Vanderbilt. He said no specific dates have been scheduled but that the visits will likely occur during the summer.
In addition to USF, he also claims offers from Duke, Florida A&M, Florida International, and Syracuse.
As a junior, Woulard had 1,334 passing yards, 14 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. It marked his first year as a starting quarterback for Winter Park.
