Catching Up with Paul Gaughan

2011 prospect Paul Gaughan catches up with TSR to discuss the recruiting process.

Paul Gaughan, the thirty-eighth rated offensive tackle in the country, continues to draw interest from the nation’s top programs. He sports offers from Boston College, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Wisconsin, and many more.

This summer has been pretty active for Gaughan. He recently visited Northwestern,

Michigan, and Wisconsin, liking each school “equally.” The Dunmore High standout was also invited to participate in the inaugural Chesapeake Bowl, an all-star game for the most talented high school seniors in the Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington D.C area.

Maryland is still a player in the Gaughan sweepstakes. Gaughan says he talks to Maryland often, and especially to Coach Lempa. “Coach Lempa likes that I can move and I am flexible. They (the Maryland staff) said I could play early if I were to go to Maryland.” Paul believes Maryland will still be in the mix whenever he narrows down his choices from the vast amount of school recruiting him.

Gaughan has no favorites at the moment, but did state what his criteria will be for selecting a school. “Basically, where I fit in with the coaches and players and if I feel comfortable.”

As of now it is unclear where he will take his five official visits this fall, but he does intend to use all have to help make his decision. At whatever school Paul ends up at he plans on majoring in Sports Medicine.
