Report: Paulus To Visit Nebraska Thursday

Former Duke point guard Greg Paulus is strongly considering playing football next season at Syracuse, his hometown school, but he looks set to consider all his options first. With Michigan out of the picture, those options now include Nebraska.

According to ESPN's Joe Schad, Paulus will visit the Nebraska football program Thursday.

Nebraska is famous for the option rushing attack it used for most of its history, but since Bill Callahan took over,  the head coaching job in 2004, the Cornhuskers have completely revamped their offense to a pass-first system. Callahan was fired in 2007, but his pass-happy offense remained, giving Paulus a possible alternative to Syracuse.

The Cornhuskers have five quarterbacks on their roster, but starter Joe Ganz is graduating this month, so Paulus could conceivably compete for the starting nod.

Nebraska went 9-4 last season and defeated Clemson, 26-21, in the Gator Bowl.
