Marietta (Ga.) Walton High School
Chose OSU over:
Georgia, Miami-Ohio, Tulane, Duke
Where he fits on the depth chart:
OSU didn’t have a fullback on scholarship in 2008, so Paulsen could make an early impact.
His first chance to play will be as a fullback, but Paulsen is versatile enough to play tight end and be valuable both as a blocker and, at times, a receiver.
