Hoops Recruit: Chris Paul

Last week, Chris Paul received a multitude of offers in person from head coaches. He says he'll think about making a decision in the summer, if not before then. Is Florida still in the picture?

Paul Has Offers From Everywhere

Chris Paul, a point guard from Clemmons (NC) West Forsyth, has erupted as a prospect. The second-team all-stater is a first tier recruit for a number of programs. Those programs include Wake Forest, NC State, North Carolina, Stanford, Clemson, South Carolina and Charlotte.

Paul says he could decide after the crazy AAU and camp scene concludes. "Probably by the end of the summer if not before then."

Last week, the Carolinas offered scholarships – North and South Carolina – as both head coaches did the offering in person. UNC's offer was the one which caught a few people by surprise. "They came in for an open gym and they offered me a scholarship," Paul said. "I hadn't gotten my first letter from them until a week or two before."

In the end, Paul isn't expected to venture too far from home. "Like I said, I like Wake, State and (North) Carolina. That's the ACC. I still like the ACC."
