David Paulsen is a defensive end/fullback/h-back prospect from Marietta (Ga.) Walton High School. Paulsen, 6-3.5,and 240 pounds, mainly plays on the defensive side of the ball. This season he has 46 tackles, four sacks, and seven tackles for a loss so far this year.
"Last season I really played well against the run," Paulsen said. "This season my pass rush has improved. I am getting after the quarterback."
This weekend Paulsen will make his second official visit. If all goes well he could likely make his decision and commit.
"I am going to Oklahoma State this weekend. I can't wait to see their facilities. T. Boone Pickens is very generous to that school. I am really looking forward to the visit. I actually played this about two months ago. Oklahoma State seems to be getting better and better.
"I really like the coaches, especially coach (Glenn) Spencer. He's a really good guy and recruited me while he was at Duke.
"If I go there I will play fullback (h-back). If things go right this weekend I could be a Cowboy."
Paulsen has already taken one official visit earlier this month. That was to Miami (Ohio).
"That was a great visit. I Iike the campus and coaches. The academics are awesome and it would be a great place to go to school."
Paulsen also took an unofficial to Tulane. Both Tulane and Miami (Ohio) like him on the defensive side of the ball. They both have offered. Another team he likes is Georgia but the Dawgs have not.
"If things aren't 100% this weekend with Oklahoma State then I may visit Georgia in December. They have not offered yet but I really like Georgia too. Being from Georgia how could you not? If they offered it would be a very tough decision between Oklahoma State and Georgia. That would be a hard decision."
Last weekend Walton lost it's first game of the season to Lassiter. This weekend they face Roswell (Ga.) High School. Roswell was also beaten (by Milton).
