Greg Paulus is not only a special basketball player; he is also a highly rated prospect on the gridiron.
Paulus, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound point guard from Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, N.Y., told RivalsHoops.com that he is still unsure what sport he will concentrate on in college.
As gifted as a passer as he is on the hardwood, he's also a good quarterback prospect.
A number of big-time basketball programs are after Paulus, who has established himself as one of the top hoop prospects in the Class of 2005.
"I am keeping it open, because I could play both sports in college," he said.
Paulus told RivalsHoops.com that he is looking at North Carolina, Duke, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Xavier, Villanova and Georgetown. He has taken unofficial visits so far to Duke, Xavier and Notre Dame, and he's very familiar with Georgetown, since three of his brothers have attended the Washington, D.C. school.
In fact, Paulus played in the on-campus gym facility at Georgetown while at the Weber DC Capitol Invitational this past weekend.
Georgetown Head Coach Craig Esherick, Syracuse Head Coach Jim Boeheim and Villanova Head Coach Jay Wright were among the coaches who have paid visits to CBA this spring.
During the season, Duke Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski and Blue Devils Asst. Coach Steve Wojociechowski went to watch Paulus play, and former North Carolina Head Coach Matt Doherty eyeballed Greg at the Prime Time Shootout in New Jersey.
New Tar Heel Head Coach Roy Williams has kind of picked up the baton from Doherty and has also expressed interest in Paulus.
"I am having fun with it [the recruiting]," Paulus said. "It only happens one time."
Paulus expects to attend the Nike All-American Camp for the second straight year come July. He will also travel with the Syracuse-Rochester Area Players and Mickey Walker's Donyell Marshall Foundation program.
RivalsHoops.com expects to catch Paulus in action several times in the coming weeks and months, so keep it here for the latest updates and information on the talented floor general from upstate New York.
