Hold off naming Tate Forcier Michigan's starting quarterback. According to Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports.com, Duke point guard Greg Paulus was in Ann Arbor on Tuesday meeting with Rich Rodriguez about the possibility of playing for the Wolverines this fall.
Paulus was a standout quarterback at Christian Brothers Academy in New York and recruited by a number of top-flight programs, but he decided to play basketball instead. He started for three years at Duke before coming off the bench last season as a senior.
Paulus, who watched Michigan's final practice of the spring on Tuesday, has one season of football eligibility remaining.
Several other college teams have reportedly contacted Paulus, and NFL teams are interested too. He worked out last Thursday for the Green Bay Packers.
Goodman reported that Paulus was exploring the possibility of continuing his basketball career until he was contacted by a Packers scout after the Blue Devils lost to Villanova in the Sweet 16.
Update: ACC Sports Journal talked with David Cutcliffe, who said Paulus also expressed interest in playing football for the Blue Devils. "We talked extensively," Cutcliffe said. "He's a quarterback at heart. But there was no way he was going to be able to compete and play QB for us." Unlike Michigan, Duke has a veteran quarterback returning in Thad Lewis.
