Another good start to the week...

Brothers Mike (UNC quarterback) and Greg Paulus (Duke point guard) returned a signed 8x10 photo care of the UNC athletic department in about one month. The younger of the two, Mike is set to battle for the starting job this fall after redshirting last year. Greg, meanwhile, will be a senior for the Blue Devils this season and has averaged more than 11 points per game each of the past two seasons while also handing out in excess of three assists.

Mike Paulus and North Carolina wide receiver Hakeem Nicks also signed an 8x10 photo care of the UNC athletic department. Nicks set the school record for receptions and receiving yards by a freshman two years ago and then broke the overall school record for receptions in a season last fall. His 80 receiving yards per game were second best in the ACC a seaon ago.

Florida State baseball foursome Buster Posey, Jack Rye, Tony Delmonico, and Matt Fairel returned a signed 8x10 photo care of the FSU athletic department in about three and a half months. Posey, the Brooks Wallace Award winner this spring, helped led FSU to the College World Series. Delmonico and Rye both batted above .370 with a combined 15 homeruns, while Fairel was outstanding on the mound, leading the team with a 12-2 record and 3.79 ERA.

Texas A&M fullback Jorvorskie Lane signed a pair of index cards and completed a questionnaire care of the Aggies' athletic department in about three weeks. The senior-to-be scored a school-record 19 touchdowns in 2006 and has scored 45 total touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Cal Poly wide receiver Ramses Barden also signed two index cards and filled out a questionnaire care of the team's athletic department in just three weeks. No returning player in D-IAA has scored more career touchdowns than the 6'6" senior.

Virginia Tech defensive back Kam Chancellor signed a pair of index cards and completed a questionnaire care of the Hokies' athletic offices in just over a week. The team's fourth leading tackler last fall, Chancellor earned the President's Award for demonstrating outstanding leadership during the off-season and spring programs last year.

Rounding out the day was Wisconsin incoming freshman quarterback Curt Phillips, who returned a pair of index cards and a completed questionnaire in just two weeks. The Tennessee native chose the Badgers over Kentucky, Duke, and others.
