Greg Paulus, Duke (2005-09)
Greg Paulus burst onto the scene as a highly touted freshman. Paulus started at point guard for Coach K as a freshman. If Coach K is willing to let you run the show as a punk 18-year old kid, you must be pretty good.
That alone earned Paulus negative attention from opposing fans. Well, that and he was playing at Duke. It didn’t end in glory like it seemed it might, as Paulus never won a National Championship and was relegated to a backup role during his senior season.
