Gilas Youth product Rafael Go heads to Letran

Another product of Goldwin Monteverde is headed to Letran.

Former Gilas Pilipinas Youth player Rafael Go has already enrolled in Letran, and will join the Knights for the upcoming NCAA Season 96 tournament.

The development was confirmed to Tiebreaker Times by Knights head coach Bonnie Tan.

And his addition to Letran has been a long time coming for the 6-foot-4 product of Chiang Kai Shek High School.

“Last year pa lang, gusto na niyang pumunta sa Letran. Talagang gustong-gusto niya pumunta sa Letran. Since his dad also came from Chiang Kai Shek, we were able to connect,” said Tan, a product of Grace Christian, on the other hand.

Go is an under-the-radar prospect.

From 2017-18, the 6-foot-4 forward was a mainstay in the Gilas Youth program.

In the 2017 SEABA Under-16 championship, Go posted solid numbers of 8.2 points on 52-percent shooting from the field and 6.8 rebounds per game.

He was also called up for the 2018 FIBA Asian Championship, averaging 2.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game.

Last year, Go was the star of Manila in the 2019 M-League 24-under tourney. He was the league’s leading scorer at 22.3 markers per contest to go along with numbers of 8.9 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, and 1.2 steals.

“I’ve seen him play in the M-League but he has only practiced with the team twice before the lockdown,” shared Tan, who is also the chief of the Metro Manila Sports Fest.

The 19-year-old will be eligible to play for five years.

Monteverde products and ex-NU Bullpups Jimly Lantaya, who stands at 6-foot-9, and Jeff Mailim, a 5-foot-10 guard, also entered Letran.
