1/15/09: Crew Pick University of Pennsylvania's Alex Grendi at #45

Alex Grendi is a left midfield/forward player for the University of Pennsylvania. The theme of this draft appears to be, "if you have a right foot, the Crew don't want you." Grendi has consistently started since he was a Freshman at the University of Pennsylvania and made the Ivy League Firt Team uniamously this past season. Alex Grendi's University of Pennsylvania bio (doesn't include his 2008 stats, overall 8 goals and 20 assists).

Buzz Carrick's Blog:
A average player without all that much remarkable skills. He’d be down a group… except that he’s a lefty. And left mids are hard to find. The first player in Penn history selected to the MLS Combine. Unanimous All-Ivy First Team in 2008, finishes his career with 20 assists. Led Quaker three of last four years in assists and was twice team MVP. Eight career goals including four game winners.

2008: Ivy First Team

2006: Ivy Second Team.
