Off-season recruitment for UP is still ongoing, with Fighting Maroons head coach Goldwin Monteverde confirming the commitment of former Bullpup Harold Alarcon to the squad.

/ 29 September 2021

Alarcon has committed to head to Diliman to join the Fighting Maroons to begin his collegiate career.

He posted an average of 5.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.3 steals in 15 minutes of action as he largely came off the bench for National University-Nazareth School’s campaign to the championship during UAAP Season 82.

The Negros Occidental native played for Bacolod Tay Tung High School where he scored a 51-point triple-double in the NBTC regionals before moving to NU.

Alarcon has already participated in UP’s first virtual training under the supervision of Monteverde over the weekend.

The 6-foot-1 guard will again reunite with fellow Bullpup teammates Carl Tamayo, Gerry Abadiano, Terrence Fortea, and Cyril Gonzales.

They will be joining the pool of recruits bannered by rookies RC Calimag from La Salle Greenhills and Bismarck Lina from University of Santo Tomas, as well as transferees CJ Cansino from UST, Malick Diouf from Centro Escolar University, Joel Cagulangan from La Salle, and Jancork Cabahug from University of the Visayas.
