After weeks of deliberation, Duke basketball alum Greg Paulus will unveil his plans for his college football future at a press conference today at 10 a.m. EST. He’s announced that he will definitely be playing football, but where? Nebraska or Syracuse?
According to ESPN, Paulus is expected to choose the ‘Cuse. It would appear that he wouldn’t be getting the starting quarterback job at either destination though, as junior Zac Lee should lead the Huskers and redshirt freshman Ryan Nassib, the Orange, this fall.
But with a 3-9 record a year ago, Syracuse can probably use all the help they can get. And though Nebraska finished 9-4 last season, it has an inexperienced quarterback staff. Both could certainly benefit from having a high school All-American’s arm on their team.
If ESPN’s predictions are right, it looks like Paulus’ll be headed back home to the blustery cold northeast to continue his athletics career. At least the home games would be indoors, which would be a welcome reprieve from the multiple-feet-tall snowdrifts he’d undoubtedly trudge through to get to class. But hey, he still has 6 ½ hours to change his mind.
UPDATE: It’s confirmed. Paulus is heading home to play for the Orange.
