Paulus Visits Nebraska, Decision Soon?

Might this be the one time to really believe that a recruit is serious about a school's academic facilities? Or is it just a bizarre recruiting tale? Either way, soon-to-be former Duke basketball player Greg Paulus plans on playing football in the fall and he took in Nebraska'a campus last week. Of course, if it is between Nebraska and Syracuse, wouldn't the hometown Orange have the edge with their journalism school?

It's so amazing to me that someone who has not played an organized game of football in 4 years a)is getting this much attention. Everyone is acting like he is an 18 year old 5 star recruit and b) thinks he can step on the field and start at any position for any D1 school (except Syracuse, who must be desperate for ANY talent), especially quarterback. I so wish he would have went out for wide receiver at Duke. Seeing him run out on a route and get crushed by the likes of Kenny Tate, Jamari McCollough, Terrell Skinner or Antwine Perez would have been SWEET!

I always wondered why Paulus picked basketball. He had to suspect he wasn't going to be able to man up against NBA guards, and the most he could hope for was a part-time role.

He's always been a better football player.

Be fun to see him get a year at Nebraska and see if an NFL club was interested. I'm willing to be he's better than half the QBs drafted this year.

Nebraska makes no sense at all for Paulus. They already have an entrenched QB and they do not have an excellent communications graduate program. Syracuse, with new coach Doug Marrone switching to a spread offense, had committed to Red Shirt Freshman Ryan Nassib as their starter, so why not bring in a local guy who excelled in a spread offense? Also, Syracuse happens to have the SI Newhouse School of Communications, the #1 Communications school in the United States. Paulus should be wearing Orange this fall.
