Connect Four: Paul Completes Signing Class

West Forsyth point guard put the finishing touches on Wake Forest's recruiting class for 2003 when he signed his letter of intent. Paul joins Jeremy Ingram, Kyle Visser, and Todd Hendley in the 2003 recruiting class. DeaconSports spoke with Chris Paul Thursday night about his signing.

Chris Paul completed Wake Forest's signing class for the high school class of 2003 on Thursday when the six-foot point guard signed a letter of intent to play at Wake Forest.

"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.
