Paulus Has Opportunities

Greg Paulus

Shortly after the Blue Devils' season ended against Villanova, point guard Greg Paulus began hearing from various coaches. Just not basketball coaches. Fast forward nearly five weeks and the 6'1 former point guard has a number of options both on the gridiron and the basketball court.

Having already worked out of the Green Bay Packers and then making a trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan to meet with Wolverine head coach Rich Rodriguez about the possibility of playing in the Big 10 this season, Paulus certainly isn't hurting for potential destinations in his athletic career.

"There have been a lot of opportunities that have presented themselves in the last couple of days," Paulus told Fox's Jeff Goodman on Wednesday. "I'm just trying to figure out what's best for me and my future."

That future appears to center around a decision of attempting to resurrect a highly decorated prep football career or continuing his basketball - likely overseas.

The football resume is certainly something that has garnered attention. Over a four year period that saw him throw for 11,763 yards and 152 touchdowns in 45 career games and led Christian Brothers Academy to a 42-3 record, while being named the Gatorade National Player of the Year as a senior, Paulus gained national recognition continually and had any number of high major football programs courting him. However, his first love was basketball and he chose to play for Duke. Four years later, and he admits there's a desire to at least explore a return to football.

"If there's a situation and it's the right opportunity to fulfill some of my goals," Paulus said. "I'd have to look at it. If there's a great opportunity to play football and also improve my academic resume, it's something I will seriously consider."
