Paul listening to all suitors

Munday athlete Dee Paul figures to play cornerback at the college level. He is the son of a former TCU player, but he is not hearing from the Frogs.

Dee Paul has done it all to help his Munday High School football team advance to the state semifinals.

His impressive numbers underscore what he believes has been a team effort.

"We just need to keep playing together," Paul said. "My teammates have really been blocking for me, and we've been playing as a team."

The 6'0 Paul plays both quarterback and wide receiver for Munday, but Scout.com ranks him as a three star cornerback at the college level.

Paul, who runs a 4.4 in the 40 yard dash, is a three-time defending state champion in the hurdles at the Texas state track meet and runs a 47.1 in the 400 meter race.

The elite 2013 athlete holds offers from Oklahoma State, SMU, and Texas Tech.

"I was just on the phone with the Tech coach a minute ago," Paul said Tuesday evening.

"With Oklahoma State, it's been good. We've been talking about becoming a better football player and a better person. I talk with Coach Jones, the defensive backs coach. It's a really good relationship."

"He's been down here twice to see me, and I am really getting to know him a lot better."

Paul is the son of a former TCU football player, but he says he has not heard from the Frogs.

"I have not heard anything from TCU, but I would welcome any team that wants to contact me," said Paul.

So far this season, Paul has passed for 1521 yards with 22 touchdowns and has rushed for 1,509 yards and 27 touchdowns on 93 carries.

On the defensive side of the ball, he has eight interceptions (three returned for touchdown) with 210 return yards to go along with 51 tackles.

Add in three fumble recoveries, 274 yards on eight punt returns (3 for touchdown), 436 yards on 7 kickoff returns (3 for touchdown), and Paul has been an elite game changer for his undefeated Munday team.

He has scored 36 touchdowns on the year despite playing just one full game due to several blowout wins for the Munday Moguls.

Last week in the state quarterfinals, Paul carried the ball 15 times for 315 yards with five touchdowns.

"It's going good right now. We're in the state quarterfinals. We play a good Wellington team this weekend," said Paul. "Hopefully we'll be in the state championship by next week."

Paul, ranked as the no. 107 cornerback by Fox Sports NEXT, was previously committed to SMU but has now eliminated the Mustangs from consideration.
