Former UCLA redshirt sophomore QB Asiantii Woulard has announced that he will play for the University of South Florida.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Woulard was a former 4-star prospect coming out of high school, but was unable to find a role on the UCLA roster this season. Woulard, who is from Winter Park, Florida, will return home with a better chance to play at USF.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that "area scouts really like" South Florida senior S Jamie Byrd.

"From what I’m told area scouts really like safety Jamie Byrd. Built more like a corner than safety, he’s explosive, goes sideline to sideline and comes with solid cover skills," Pauline writes. The former juco transfer from Iowa Western Community College had an impressive season in his first year for the Bulls. The 5-foot-11, 184-pound Byrd earned Defensive MVP honors for UCF, recording 95 tackles (71 solo),finishing 10th in the AAC, averaging 7.9 tackles per game.

USF redshirt freshman OT Reilly Gibbons has been granted immediate eligibility and can play in 2015.

"He was elated and so excited when Coach Taggart called him," the player’s father, Shannon Gibbons, said. "It’s a blessing, it really is. It’s great for Reilly and the whole family." The 2014 four-star recruit signed with Stanford and was with the team through October, when he decided to transfer to USF. Because he completed classes at his former school, an appeal for immediate eligibility was necessary.

UCLA redshirt sophomore QB Asiantii Woulard announced through his twitter account that he was transferring from UCLA.

The former 4-star prospect out of Winter Park, Florida has not found a way to get on the field for UCLA the last two years. With Jerry Neuheisel, Hundley's former back-up, and freshman Josh Rosen in the mix for the starting job, Woulward was the odd man out. Woulard still has three years of eligibility remaining, but would have to sit out a year if he were to transfer to another FBS program.

NFL Media notes that USF has "been pitiful" in HC Willie Taggart's two seasons, putting him on one of the nation's hottest seats.

The No. 6 hottest, in the estimation of the site. "Quarterback play has been egregiously bad, which has to frustrate Taggart, who was a high-level Division I-AA quarterback during his playing days," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "Recruiting has been surprisingly pedestrian under Taggart, as well. And it's not as if the AAC has been filled with great teams the past two seasons." Taggart, who is from the area, is 6-18 in two seasons.

Former Wisconsin redshirt freshman S Austin Hudson officially transferred to South Florida.

The move had been in the making for several weeks. It was made official by a USF announcement on Friday. Hudson played in all 14 games as a true freshman last season. He registered 19 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. The two-star recruit in 2014, who will be forced to sit out the 2015 season, will be eligible to play for Bulls HC Willie Taggart in 2016.

Former Wisconsin redshirt freshman S Austin Hudson transferred to South Florida.

Hudson said he left Madison because of "a culture thing." The prospect is from Tampa Bay. "I love being a part of building my hometown team, it’s an exciting next chapter of my career," said Hudson. He registered 19 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble as a freshman. Hudson was a two-star recruit in 2014 who will be forced to sit out the 2015 season.
May 8 - 9:54 PM

Bills signed South Florida WR Andre Davis.

Davis (6'1/207) made 30 starts at USF, parlaying 153 catches into 2,136 yards (14.0 YPR) and 17 TDs. He ran 4.60 at his Pro Day, also struggling in the broad (9'10") and vertical (32 1/2") jumps. Davis lacks speed and leaping ability to win outside, and shows a concerning amount of timidness when running over the middle, which would be problematic in the slot. He'll likely go down as a good college player who couldn't cut it in the pros.
May 4 - 4:54 PM

Redskins selected USF C Austin Reiter with the No. 222 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Reiter is one of the best athletes among offensive linemen in this class. We wonder if Scot McCloughan has carried Seattle's approach (drafting athletes during day three) from his time spent with the Seahawks. Reiter started 36 games during his final three seasons.
May 2 - 5:34 PM

Texans selected South Florida OLB Reshard Cliett with the No. 211 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Cliett (6'2/222) started 27 games in his career, leading South Florida in sacks with six last season and ranking second on the team with 7.5 TFLs. He ran a 4.51 with a 38 1/2" vertical at his pro day. Cliett will have to make a splash on special teams to make the Texans.
May 2 - 5:03 PM

USF CB Chris Dunkley is scheduled to visit the Dolphins after completing a visit with the Falcons, according to Greg Auman.

Dunkley is likely a day three selection, but teams are always intrigued by corners with ball skills. Dunkley is a former receiver who converted to corner before his final season of collegiate football. He attended a regional Combine.

USF TE Michael McFarland pieced together a very good pro day workout and could emerge as a late round target.

Per Gil Brandt, ran the 40 in 4.73 seconds with the wind and 4.85 seconds against the wind and added a 35-inch vertical, 9-foot-8 broad jump, 4.4 short shuttle and the three-cone drill in 7.12 seconds. The crop of tight ends is not a large one, and teams will be searching for a possible late round contributor.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that South Florida senior WR Andre Davis "showed off his acceleration" at the Shrine Game.

"Davis showed off his acceleration with two big catches in this game," Rang wrote. "His first came on an underneath route in which he initially caught the ball short of the first down marker. Davis recognized where he was and had to get to, showing a second burst to convert. The second came off a quick slant in which Davis left a few defenders in his wake. It went for a gain of 19 yards, the longest play from scrimmage in an offensively starved contest in which the only touchdown scored came in the closing seconds, giving the East a 19-3 victory." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Davis as a Rd. 7 or UDFA prospect this summer.

South Florida senior WR Andre Davis caught three balls for 36 yards at Saturday's East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Davis is hoping to sneak into the back half of Day 3, and his showing last week didn't hurt that cause. USF's Offensive MVP this season hauled in 36 receptions for 594 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014. "Davis is an adequately sized receiver with reliable hands but limited deep speed," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote. "He’s a potential late round choice and number five receiver at the next level."
Jan 18 - 9:00 PM

South Florida senior WR Andre Davis will attend the East West Shrine game.

The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Davis has hauled in 30 receptions for 537 yards, with seven touchdowns on the year. The South Florida prospect missed four games this season due to a bruised sternum, an injury he suffered making a diving catch during the Bulls 36-31 win over Western Carolina. Last season, Davis had a USF season record with 735 receiving yards on a team-leading 49 receptions. Davis, who earned the Offensive MVP Award at the school's annual post-season banquet, garnered a Rd. 7 or UDFA grade from TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline this summer.
