readying bathroom walls in order to install a replacement tub surround

I'm in the process or removing a tub surround. While doing so, some of the paint and outer paper surface of the drywall underneath the surround is coming off too. I plan to install another surround and am thinking that all I need do is prime the entire area where the surround is to go and then put it in. Does that seem reasonable? If not, I'm open to and welcome suggestions

unless there is a great deal of gypsum exposed and only some paper peeled in spots, it sounds reasonable to me.

I agree with Mudder.
