The Arvin Tolentino sweepstakes has come to an end in Katipunan as the former San Beda Red Cub confirmed to a source close to Inboundpass that he wants to play in the UAAP.

Tolentino also expressed that he would have stayed in San Beda if they were playing in the UAAP.

It was a tough call for the Rizal native, who had a plethora of options on where he will take his talents in the next four to five years. Tolentino was wooed by four of the most well-backed programs in the UAAP and NCAA, namely the De La Salle Green Archers, the National University Bulldogs, his high school club San Beda College, and of course, the winners of the sweepstakes, the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles.

However, he was not just recruited to play his college ball here in the country but also in the US as well. According to several online news articles, the 6-5 forward/center was approached last September in the FIBA U-18 World Championships in Indonesia by the Duke Blue Devils and the Rhode Island Rams, both NCAA Division I schools, to try out for their teams.

UAAP Juniors MVP, Thirdy Ravena will be joined by Arvin Tolentino (who was NCAA Juniors Finals MVP last season when the Red Cubs defeated LSGH) in Ateneo this upcoming season as both of them will be tasked to lead a loaded recruiting coup in Katipunan. Clint Doliguez and John Apacible, two prized prospects from Hope Christian High School also committed to the Blue Eagles the past few months.

After failing to qualify for a Final Four slot last year and losing several key players like Ryan Buenafe and Juami Tiongson to graduation, Ateneo turned to its recruitment program to start rebuilding. They now have two of the most coveted players in the high school ranks in Ravena and Tolentino and two quality recruits in Doliguez and Apacible. The skies are not cloudy as it once was for the Blue Eagles, thanks to their strong recruiting this off-season.

With no more Poy Erram or Frank Golla to clog the middle, the commitment of the 6-5 forward/center Tolentino couldn’t have come at a better time. Tolentino is expected to bolster a thin Ateneo frontcourt and help G-boy Babilonia and Vince Tolentino protect the paint.

Arvin Tolentino and his all-around game will be tested in the UAAP, as he’ll be assigned to go against the AVOs, the Abduls and the Sewas of the league. Having one of the most polished games in the high school ranks and being touted as the second coming of Danny Francisco, minus the heart complications, Arvin Tolentino is now primed to be the next big thing in college basketball.

    look who’s happy in writing this article- inboundpass. hehehe.

  • Mon de los Reyes says:

    Inboundpass is run by Bedans. Why should they be happy about losing their top HS player?

    • SCD says:

      Actually it was started by a Bedan. Now it’s run by blue boys, which is soooo disappointing!

      Back to the topic, we’ve never hindered our student athletes’ freedom of choice. It’s a basic human right which schools should be respecting and protecting – NOT circumventing.

      Mas maganda siguro offer nung mga asul. besides, gusto tlaga nilang mag palakas dahil nag champion yung kanilang lovr last year. LOL.

      Good luck to Arvin! Animo!

  • Mav says:

    No problem. With or w/o Tolentino the Red Lions can still land in the final four next season. I wish him all the luck in the UAAP.
