Paulus to announce plans Thursday

Posted by on Wed, May 13, 2009 at 6:43 PM

Former senior Duke point guard Greg Paulus will announce his plans for football next season Thursday at 10 a.m. in a teleconference.

Paulus briefly flirted with several football teams, including both the professional and college levels, after wrapping up the basketball season in a loss to Villanova.

A standout quarterback at Christian Brothers Academy in Syracuse, N.Y., Paulus led his team to a 42-3 record and set several state passing records and was recruited by Notre Dame and other top football program but turned down football for an opportunity to play for Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski.

After starting for three seasons as Duke's point guard, Paulus was benched in favor of Jon Scheyer and freshman Elliot Williams more than halfway through last season.

Reports a few weeks back indicated Paulus might be headed to Syracuse University, his hometown school. But Paulus has also looked at Nebraska and Michigan.
