"It was exciting," Paul told DeaconSports. "I'm happy to have it over and done with. I was at the game tonight and right after Jeremy [Ingram] called. We talked about how happy we are and that we're happy the other two [ Todd Hendley and Kyle Visser ] have already signed. I'm getting ready to call Todd right now."
"It's great. It felt a little different at the game knowing that this is the place that I had decided on and it was a done deal."
While Paul is excited about his future at Wake Forest, he also knows he has his work cut out for him this season at West Forsyth. "We're going to be young this year," Paul noted, "but we'll probably be quicker, just not as big in size. We'll be a whole lot smarter though. We should be fine."
Meanwhile, Paul will continue to work on his game to prepare for college. "Individually, I'm trying to work on my pull up jumpers, defense, and that kind of stuff – whatever I need to do to be ready when I get to Wake Forest next year."
Upcoming for Paul, West Forsyth has a scrimmage on Saturday in Fayetteville. Paul's first official game of his senior season is at Parkland this Wednesday at 7:30.
