Paulus chose Duke over Notre Dame, North Carolina, and Xavier, despite the Irish being the reported favorites since the end of his final visits.
Greg will join senior Sean Dockery and sophomore Demarcus Nelson in the Duke backcourt when he arrives in Durham in June of 2005.
He is rated as one of the top 15 players in the country according to TheInisders.com National Recruiting Analyst Dave Telep.
"I think Greg Paulus is among the best PGs in the class of 2004," said Telep. "To me, he's a Steve Blake type in that he's got plenty of intangibles, is a tough kid, loves to play and compete and leads a team. I can see him having a very
successful career in Durham and I would imagine that Mike Krzyzewski is very much looking forward to coaching him."
With Paulus now on board the Blue Devils are likely to turn their attention to the class of 2004 and Illinois point guard Shaun Livingston along with Florida big man Alexander Kaun.
