    Sino top recruits niyo?

    Looking forward to seeing if the Taane Samuel hype is legit next season. Can he be DLSU's next star big man?

    Taane is currently the top scorer for DLSU B. Bigger question, is he a Fil-Kiwi or full blooded import. Remember that he played for the Kiwi's U-18 national team in the World's U-18 tournament. If he is an import, he will have another year if Ben decides to play another year.

    Is CJ Lane currently doing residency at Taft? He is a former division II center while the Fil-Oz import has not been impressive based on the published score sheets of their prior games.

    DLSU/Ateneo ang best rookie class as of now.

    Adamson has three players na sure in for next year. Macion, Catapusan, Jerome Lastimosa.

    DLSU and ADMU will have problems recruiting Pinoy blue chippers. Opposing coaches are resorting to negative recruitment by correctly pointing out that the roster of both schools are stacked and a deep team B roster to boot.

    DLSU has 4-5 imports and Fil-something players plus the kid from Bacolod Tay Tung high school. They are all suppose to be taller than 6’ 4”. There will be a push to sign a point guard as a future replacement for Montalbo. Encho Serrano perhaps.

    For ADMU, coaches are pointing out that there are a few players on team B like Kouame, an Aussie just shorter than Ikeh and Fil-something’s Wong brothers, Navarro and Maagdenberg. AHS is also loaded even if DaveIldefonso heads to NU to join Sean and the dad. The guard Corp is very solid but big need for 4-5’s.

    UST and UP are wrestling for the services of Gozum with UP having a slight advantage. NU has the advantage with big man Umpad from Lyceum of Cavite. Teams are also lining up for Gozum’s running mate Bonifacio. NU has first dibs for the players of Nazareth school and CKS.

    We need more than Gozum to be competitive next year. Of course, he is enough but we need a back-up. I'd also like for Bonifacio to be in UP para wala nang problema sa chemistry nila.

    NU has Clemente, afaik hindi pa nila kinukuha si Penano.

    Where will Harvey Pagsanjan go?

    Sana di mabingwit ng ibang schools si LJ Gonzales. Siya na lang natitira for FEU. :lol:

    So you’re saying that a Bright, Tungcab, and Murrell class is not top at the moment? We all know Bright, Tungcab is a proven UAAP contributor, and Murrell has been hyped in your thread for a while now

    We don’t even know for sure who ADMU/DLSU will bring in and how they would pan out, on paper they might look good but we’re never gonna know until they play

    That’s why I’d say that based on proven commodities, UP has the most impactful class for next season

    CJ Lane returned to the US per Interbasket. Sino yung Fil-Oz import?

    Hopefully Taane plays in next year's FilOil so we can see him go against full UAAP / NCAA lineups. Can he live to the hype?

    since the outcome of this saga will dictate how recruitment will go...

    Revived rule makes Mbala ineligible next season
    Philippine Daily Inquirer / 09:48 PM December 05, 2017


    The return of an eligibility rule suspended in the last two seasons could struck out La Salle’s two-time Most Valuable Player Ben Mbala from seeing action in UAAP Season 81 next year.

    –– ADVERTISEMENT ––



    The Cameroonian big man who led the Green Archers to the Season 79 crown and a runner up finish last Sunday may not be eligible to play next season due to the “Seven Years Out of High School” rule.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The UAAP Board, in a regular meeting last March 12, 2016 at University of the Philippines, unanimously decided to suspend the rule for Season 79 and Season 80.

    The rule shall be applied thereafter unless such suspension is extended or the rule amended or repealed, the UAAP board said in the minutes of its meeting, a copy of which was furnished by a reliable source to the Inquirer.

    Mbala’s school records from Southwestern University showed that the 6-foot-8 stalwart graduated high school from Institut Samba in Yaounde, Cameroon in 2011, which meant that next season will be his eighth year out of high school.

    Mga lodi what are the chances na maextend/ ma amend ang rule before next season? and if ever, sino pang ibang athletes ang apektado nito?
  • inghinyeroinghinyero Member ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    ang alam ko ha, ang chance nyan ay parang yung kay rob ricafort
    should the board decides to let him play, makakalaro yan
    if ipilit ng la salle na idala sa court, makakalaro pa rin yan pero risk of forfeiture if ever, eh court cases like these die a natural death

    24 yo's garcia and basibas might also not be elig to play next year

    also from what i know;
    swu - 1py
    uaap - 2 py

    so may 2 pa sana sya, not sure if forfeited

    FEU? wala..hehe. magugulat na lang kayo na may magaling sila na narecruit.hehe

    Majority of the FEU recruits are from the provinces and do not receive as much publicity. FEU will have the services of another player from down under, si Davies who stands around 6' 4".
  • mrjumbo03mrjumbo03 Member ✭✭✭
    ^Rob's case is different though. The issue was how to interpret the rule. He's not yet 25 during the basketball season, but he'll be 25 by January next year (I think), so technically he'll be 25 during the UAAP season. Kumbaga, pwede mo talaga iargue.

    Contrast to Mbala's case, if the rule will be reinstated (and all the more if during the 2016 board meeting, it was decided that the suspension of the rule will be for 2 seasons unless extended), it will be pretty clear cut and there will be no issues on the interpretation of the rule.

    FEU has long had the best provincial recruiting team in the land, I remember the 2007 season when they completely rebooted their program, I was there for the first game of the season and was wondering... who are these guys? (the Barroca, Cawaling, Cervantes, Ramos batch) quite a shame that they failed to bring a title to Morayta in the succeeding years

    It is indeed different, Ricafort’s case was regarding the 25 years old age limit, the rule in question here is the “7 years out of HS rule” which was suspended for two seasons due to the K-12 program and it is scheduled to return for next season

    One thing is for sure, the board will meet and tackle this issue. What are the chances of the 7 other schools giving the green school a free pass in extending the suspension of this rule?
  • mrjumbo03mrjumbo03 Member ✭✭✭
    DLSU, with Mbala, in the last 2 seasons lost only 5 times in the UAAP - 4 against Ateneo (1 last year, 3 this year), and 1 against UP. I find it highly improbable that the rest of the UAAP teams will vote in favor of having Mbala play another year.

    One wildcard factor is if the schools have their own athletes to protect na matatamaan once the rule goes back in place (sino pa nga ba?) of course Mbala being the most prominent one will be the main point of contention
