Former high school All-American, Regis Koundjia, made four quick recruiting visits, turned down requests for numerous others, and has transferred from Louisiana State University to an Atlantic 10 West institution.
Today, Koundjia announced that he will enroll at George Washington, and will play for Coach Karl Hobbs' much-improved Colonials team next season.
6-foot-8, 200-pound, sophomore power/wing forward Regis Koundjia, a resident of the Central Africa Republic, rated among the nation's Top 27 seniors in 2003 as a senior at Laurinburg, N.C., Institute, decided to leave L.S.U. at the end of the fall semester, and made quick campus visits to Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, George Washington, and Georgetown.
Koundjia will have to sit out until next December, but he can start practicing with the George Washington team immediately. He will have two and one/half years of collegiate eligibility.
Reportedly, all four of the programs that he visited really wanted Koundjia; but, he felt that the playing opportunities at George Washington were best for him. Also, proximity was also a factor, since Koundjia's home in the United States is Washington, D.C.
So, he will enroll for classes this week at George Washington University.
