Fil-foreign players inks commitments to NU Bulldogs
With the universities’ offseason recruitment wars, the Bulldogs camp confirmed the commitments of Fil-foreign talents Patrick Ramos and brothers Terence and Alfonso Crisostomo in their line up.
NU recently underwent several changes these past months, including the commitments of the three NU high school standouts to two different UAAP schools, the resignation of coach Monteverde, and the fresh departure of JV Gallego for San Beda as well as the exodus of other players.
However, the squad is still on the lookout for its next steward, but the program is not stopping in its rebuilding.
Ramos and the Crisostomos are welcome additions for the squad, which will still be bannered by Shaun Ildefonso next season.
Fil-Am guard Ramos confirmed his tie with the Bulldogs with an Instagram post of a picture of him wearing a Bulldogs jersey and a caption “Stacked every chip on myself, time to collect. All money in, just imagine what I gross back. #NewBeginnings.”
Moreover, the 6-foot player played three successful years in UC Santa Cruz and averaged 13.8 points on 35-percent shooting from threes, on top of 3.6 assists, and 3.1 rebounds in 33.4 minutes of playing records in his third year with the Banana Slugs.
Ramos is set to play for the Bulldogs for two more years starting UAAP Season 84.
Meanwhile, the Fil-Canadian brothers have signed their engagement in NU as early as August.
The 5-foot-11 guard Terence played with Old College in Alberta for two years as he posted 9.7 points, 2.9 boards, and 2.8 dimes in his sophomore season with the Broncos.
Alfonso, on the other hand, is a 6-foot combo guard, and a high school standout who just graduated from Bishop McNally High.
Terence has still three years of eligibility to play with the squad while Alfonso can a play complete five years in NU.
