Vlad officially an Eagle

Well Vlad is officially enrolled at American University and will eligible to play for them starting in the spring '10 semester of next season.
"Vlad Moldoveanu, a 6-foot-10 224-pound forward, has been admitted to American and will start classes on Monday. Moldoveanu played in seven games for George Mason this season, averaging 2.3 points and 2.1 rebounds for the Patriots. He will be eligible to play for the Eagles after sitting out this semester as well as the fall semester under NCAA transfer rules. The Romanian native was a first-team All-Met at St. John's College High School in Northwest D.C. He gives American its third 6-10 player on its roster."

This is a good move for Vlad. He's a better fit there than at Mason, and he'll probably be a stud in that conference. Good for him...I wish his luck.

Can this be the last time we hear about a guy who couldn't cut it at Mason?? Otherwise, thanks for the updates (seriously...not joking).

wow Trent, if you don't like it don't read it. some fans find it interesting if a player the program spend so much recruiting on is transferring to another team in their own backyard.

If you don't like the content here start your own blog. Vlad gave it his best shot at GMU and for what ever reason it did not click. I wish him the best of luck at AU.

Saw Vlad at St Johns. Nice kid, nice player. Don't know how he got lost in the shuffle but my guess is he didn't play the D Coach L wants. But that's pure spec on my part. I think he scores a lot in the Patriot League. Good luck to him. AU is very lucky.
D Monroe is rebounding and making nice decisions with the ball. It makes them a different team. You can see he's a very smart player, beautiful touch for a big man. Blooming late, but I think he has next level potential. Call me crazy.
Love the larger lineup with "Don, Soul Train" Cornelius penetrating at point, Vaughn on the wing and "Otis" Birdsong, Daryl the MON-roe and a Fleming/Morrison/Pearson combo up front with Monroe and his passing ability popping out to the foul line and feeding down.

In the future, emphasis should be placed on a more aggressive big man (Vlad never did this). A team in the CAA with a physically imposing and aggressive man underneath should have success. Mason has lacked a player with these characteristics since Jai Lewis left. It was very difficult for Mason to contend with Notre Dame in the first round last year because we lacked Monroe and we went up against a Big East team that simply outsized us. When Monroe graduates it should be a priority that a new big man is found that could complement forwards such as Birdsong/Morrison/Pearson underneath the boards.

I agree with you jliddle. Hopefully 2009 Recruit Johnnie Williams will be just that. The big man is a 6'8", 225 post player and he's strong, physical, athletic, runs the floor and competes from start to finish. And he can knock down the J from 15 feet. Sounds like Larranaga's kinda guy. He'll be a great compliment to the already talented, young frontcout.

Jliddle, you didn't consider Will Thomas an aggressive big man?

The main reason Notre Dame crushed us is only Will Thomas showed up to play. No one else could hit the broadside of a barn shooting wise.

Yeah, Big Willie Style was definitely a beast and if it wasn't for him, that game would have been disgraceful.

I would agree with C Hirsch. If Big Willy isn't a standard model for a Mason big guy, then either is Jai. I liked Jai, but I would take Big Will 10 out of 10 times.

It can't be debated, clearly Will Thomas is the most talented player I have ever seen wearing a Mason jersey (in my time as a fan). But lets remember he was a power forward. If Mason could ever pull in a intimidating Center resembling a Tyler Hainesboro (North Carolina), or a Dejuan Blair (Pitt), this would would only complement the potential of future power forwards that play like Will Thomas. As soon as March madness is upon us, Mason is pitted against the best ACC and Big East teams who not only have a solid center but also two solid forwards of Will Thomas caliber.

Wow, Anonymous(!)...are you done foaming at the mouth?? Let me ask, is your allegiance to Mason, AU, or Vlad...Because your answer could be quite illustrative. And btw, what a lame attempt trying to post as different individuals. Of course, if you don't like it, then you don't have to read it...kinda goes both ways doesn't it?

Good luck to Vlad, but does anyone have any insight if Coach L is going to look for a transfer to fill his spot?
