Olsen says Competente will be big part of FEU’s future


Far Eastern University officials punched the air after securing the commitment of Gilas boys under-16 standout Renzo Competente.

It was just a month ago that the Tamaraws allowed RJ Abarrientos to turn pro in Korea, even after spending just one year with the seniors’ team.

And their goodwill from letting Abarrientos go without a hitch ended up with something in return – the commitment of another blue-chip recruit.

“FEU is blessed to have secured the commitment of Renzo Competente,” expressed Tamaraws head coach Olsen Racela. “We recruited him because of his shooting ability and his all-around game.

“He’s a welcome addition to the program with the departure of RJ and will be a big part of our future.”

Competente, 17, though will still have to graduate from Citrus Valley High School before being eligible for UAAP Season 86.

Renzo’s dad Lloyd assured FEU that he would help in making his son ready to make an instant impact before his freshman year in Morayta.

FEU athletics director Mark Molina is assuring the community that the wait will be worth it.

“We are very excited to have Renzo join our program,” said Molina. “He is a complete player who we expect to fit perfectly in our team.

“Coming from a family of FEU alumni, we are happy Renzo is joining the FEU basketball family.”
