George Mason in the running for a 7-footer?

Rivals recruiting profile
When reading the scouting profile for Blaise Mbargorba, the 7-0 230-pound center out of Highstown, NJ, you'd think the Patriots or any other mid-major would have no shot at landing him. However according to, George Mason is in his top 5 and he wants to make a decision before the season begins.  Virginia Tech is the biggest name also in the running and is coming at him hard but I think Paul Hewitt and his staff have a legitimate shot at landing him. From reading the write-ups on him it seems that he would certainly be a project and Mason could have an advantage with new assistant coach Roland Houston, who is labeled a big man specialists.  Mbargorba might be raw but his physical attributes would something we've never seen in at George Mason.

UPDATE 10/21:

Blaise commited to SMU

If the kid is good - maybe he wants to stay in a more urban environ instead of an agricultural setting.  the Trenton area with Philly and NYC close by - is much different than B'burg.

Hewitt has been busy, he also found time to help bail out Javaris Crittenton.

Good stuff. A serious big man recruit could really help Hewitt make his mark here while injecting enthusiasm into the program and help to bring back fans lost after Coach L left. Check out this kid's workout footage from over the summer. Yes, he's a bit raw but he has soft hands, good hand-eye coordination, nice athleticism for his size and a solid frame that should be able to comfortably support more muscle weight as he gets older and matures.

I think we can get a better writer for george mason. when i read your pieces I can hear you thinking through your sentences. With unemployment as high as it is I think there are enough good writers out there.

This would be a huge get for Mason.  Given his size and athletic ability - it would be a statement recruit. PLUS - I would love just hearing his name come across the PA.  That is a name you can get behind and enjoy screaming.  Blaise Mbargorba!!!!!  That is t-shirt worthy quality there.
