September 2, 2003 He reminds some of Bobby Hurley and now Greg Paulus will have a chance to follow in the former Duke point guard's footsteps.

The 6-1, 175-pound Syracuse (NY) Christian Brothers two-sport star, who will quarterback the team in its season-opener Friday, chose the Blue Devils over Notre Dame at a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.

North Carolina, Xavier and Syracuse rounded up his final five.

Paulus averaged 24.5 points, 6.5 assists and 4.1 rebounds as a junior and established himself as one of the top floor leaders in the country.

Paulus is not a flashy player by any means, but he's like an extension of the coach on the court and makes solid decisions. Paulus also is a dangerous three-point shooter and uses quick hands on defense to disrupt the opposition.

Just a day after getting a commitment from All-American senior wing J.R. Smith, North Carolina has reached into the Class of 2005 and captured an early pledge from Marcus Ginyard.

Ginyard, a 6-5 PG/WG from Arlington (VA) Bishop O'Connell, is a talented playmaker and defender who ranks among the top 25 players in the junior class.

Despite his size, Ginyard projects to play point guard in college. He's an expert (if not flashy) dribbler and passer and a capable shooter who tends to defer on offense and play a set-up role both for his high school and AAU (D.C. Blue Devils) teams.
