Paulus Picks The Orange

After weeks of speculation regarding his future, former Duke basketball player Greg Paulus has decided that there is indeed no place like home.According to FOX Sports.com, Paulus, in a move that barely registers on the unexpected meter, has decided he will use his final year of NCAA eligibility to play quarterback at Syracuse.Paulus, who had seemingly narrowed his collegiate choices to the ‘Cuse and Nebraska, grew up less than ten minutes from Syracuse campus.  In the end, that made this decision a no-brainer for the ex-ACC baller.”Each place was unique, but in my heart, I just felt that Syracuse was the place for me,” Paulus told the website. “It’s a chance to go home and make a difference. I’m excited about trying to re-energize the Syracuse program… It’s a pretty neat thing.”Paulus will still need to get a waiver from the NCAA to play for the Orangemen this season, but that’s not expected to be an issue as he will enroll in the university’s prestigious Newhouse School of Communications and offers a program not available at Duke.The QB will now compete with redshirt freshman Ryan Nassib for the Orange’s starting job.In addition to the interest from Syracuse and Nebraska, Paulus also had Michigan high on his list before they fell out early on in the process.  The former Gatorade High School Player of the Year in football had worked out for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, as well as giving thought to playing basketball professionally overseas.
