Former Duke point guard Greg Paulus was impressed after two days of meetings with Syracuse football coaches and staffers, but he has decided to visit with Nebraska's football program on Thursday, a person familiar with the process said Tuesday.

Paulus, a former two-sport All-American, is still very strongly considering resuming his football career with one season at Syracuse, but he doesn't want to regret not exploring all his options, another person familiar with Paulus said.

Last week, a person familiar with the situation said that Paulus was 95 percent sure that he would be on a football roster next season. He has already met with members of the Michigan football program.

Paulus was a prolific quarterback at Christian Brothers Academy, near Syracuse, where he threw for 11,763 yards and 152 touchdowns in high school. He was courted by Notre Dame and Miami, among others, to play football. He is the older brother of Mike Paulus, a North Carolina quarterback.
