Dual-threat quarterback Asiantii Woulard has announced that he will showcase his unique skill set at UCLA next season. 

The news comes from Yahoo! Sports' Edward Lewis:

Woulard, a product of Winter Park High School in Florida, originally gave his verbal commitment to South Florida back in June but quickly decommitted in early December after Skip Holtz was given the boot. 

The Bruins would probably like to thank USF for making that move right about now because the 4-star Woulard is an amazing talent. 

247Sports' composite rankings have him as the 131st-best prospect and the top-rated dual-threat quarterback in the 2013 class. At a time when dual-threat quarterbacks are excelling in the football world, Woulard brings a lot of promise.

Woulard was a wide receiver as a freshman and sophomore and has only been playing quarterback for two years, which makes his already impressive ranking a little more striking. 

As a former wide receiver, Woulard clearly has special speed and athleticism coming out of the pocket. Combine that with his 6'4", 200 pound size, and this young man could develop into something special.

He needs to continue to work on his decision-making, awareness and accuracy as a passer, but as he continues to get more reps under center, he'll be a major threat at the next level.

Woulard displayed his immense potential during this year's Elite 11 camp when he beat out top-ranked quarterback Max Browne and nine other stellar impressive quarterbacks. 

He's recovering from a broken fibula, which kept him out of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, but he should be recovered in time to start agonizing college defenses in 2013.

Make no mistake about it: the Bruins now have themselves a very intriguing talent.
