Recruitment: Paul was familiar with the new coaching staff at NC State from when he took an official visit to Northern Illinois in September. However, his two favorites going into December were Louisville and Wake Forest, both of whom had offered. Coaching changes led to an offer from Kentucky and more notably NC State. With his strong relationship to the new Pack staff from their days at NIU, Paul quickly set up an official visit to NC State for Jan. 11, and at the end of his trip, along with fellow Vero Beach corner Dravious Wright, became the first verbal commitment for Dave Doeren at NCSU.
Recruiter of record: Cornerbacks coach Richard McNutt.
2013 projection: Paul not only is a good corner prospect, but he showcased in high school that he can be an effective special teams coverage player as well. Because of that, Paul may have a chance to play as a true freshman.
