One day after visiting Wake another time to take in the Spring Game, 2018 safety Peyton Woulard (Collins Hill HS, Suwanee, GA) verbally committed to the Deacs.
Woulard becomes the sixth member of Clawson’s 2018 recruiting class, and the fifth to commit since March 2nd. He’s the first from beyond the Carolinas, continuing the staff’s strong push for defensive talent out of Georgia (following last year’s haul of Mike Allen, Jeffery Burley, Tyriq Hardimon, Troy Simon, and Jake Simpson).
The three star recruit is the third highest-rated commit in the class, and 247 Sports has him as a top 500 player and the 40th safety nationwide. Woulard chose the Deacs over 17 other programs, including ACC foes BC, Duke, and UVA along with several other P5 schools like Indiana, Iowa St., Kentucky, Minnesota, Purdue, and Vandy. It’s always a good day when we beat programs like Duke, UVA, and Vandy for recruits we want.
Woulard is 6’1” and 175 lbs, bringing the kind of height this staff values in the secondary. As you can see in the highlights below, he seems to have a nose for the ball and uses his size to make aggressive plays. He could add some weight, but that’s something that should come easily when he gets into a college S&C program.
Please join me in welcoming Peyton to the Deacs!
