2012: Skip's Junior Campaign

๐Ÿ“Œ Recruiting: Football Class of 2013

| by Matthew Manuri | SoFloBulls.com |

With the midpoint of the 2012 Football season nearing, I thought the timing was ideal for a status update on where we stand with the Recruiting Class of 2013.

QB Asiantii Woulard

By far our most prized, touted, & needed addition is #1 Ranked Dual-Threat QB & #146 QB Asiantii Woulard (Winter Park HS). Woulard was selected 24th out of the 25 QBs invited to participate in this yearโ€™s Elite 11 competition in Los Angeles. Woulard put on a clinic, outperforming ESPNU 150 commits #18 Max Browne (USC) & #16 Christian Hackenburg (Penn State) on his way to earning Elite 11 MVP honors. Trent Dilfer was mesmerized by Woulardโ€™s exceptional performance at the event & was quoted saying, โ€œI never thought he could do what he didโ€. Dilfer elaborated further, โ€œIโ€™m so blown away by it.โ€ (Video: Elite 11 MVP Interview: Asiantii Woulard) Tom Luginbill, Senior Recruiting Analyst for ESPN, reviewed Asiantii Woulardโ€™s ranking upgrade post Elite 11 that moved the QB into the #146 slot in the ESPNU 150. (Video: ESPN Quarterback Rankings Update). Woulard has continued to impress in just his second season as a starting QB. At 6โ€™4, Woulard will be the impact QB South Florida has needed for years; Letโ€™s just hope the #1 Dual-Threat QB doesnโ€™t decommit before signing his LOI in early February 2013. Here are Highlights from Woulardโ€™s first three games of 2012:

RB Jojo Kemp & WR Jeff Badet

Next up are two key recruits in needed positions for the Class of 2013: ESPN Four Star Recruit out of Deland HS, RB Jojo Kemp & ESPN Three Star Recruit out of Freedom HS (Orlando), WR Jeff Badet.

Jojo Kemp, the #15 on Orlando Sentinelโ€™s Super60, will add depth at arguably the 2nd biggest need for the Class of 2013: RB. Through the first four games of the 2012 season Kemp has dashed for 634 yards & 10 TDs. In Kempโ€™s second game of 2012 (article) he rushed for 259 yards & 4 TDs in Delandโ€™s loss to New Smyrna Beach. Nebraska is hot on the trail for Kemp after his September official visit where he witnessed the dramatic 30-27 Cornhusker victory over the Wisconsin Badgers. Hereโ€™s Jojo Kempโ€™s Highlight Video:


Jeff Badet will fill the void left in the slot WR position left by recently dismissed WR Chris Dunkley. Badet, the #28 on Orlando Sentinelโ€™s Super60, reeled in 5 receptions for 128 yards & 2 TDs against Cypress Creek in week 5. Badet has hauled in 21 receptions for 250 yards in 2012 & is considered to be a solid verbal commit. Hereโ€™s Jeff Badetโ€™s Highlight Video:

I will cover other notable recruits like WR Tony Stevens, CB Nate Godwin, WR Richard Benjamin, LB Keith Kelsey, RB AJ Turman, RB Tarean Folston & the five offensive line verbal commits from Tampa Bay area in my next recruiting update for 2013.
