Harvey Pagsanjan forgoes senior year at UE, signs with Nueva Ecija

Harvey Pagsanjan has decided to turn pro.

The 24-year-old guard has signed with reigning Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League champion Nueva Ecija.

The 6-foot guard signed on the dotted line on Friday during the Rice Vanguards’ signing day at Milky Way Cafe in Makati City.

This means that Pagsanjan will no longer be eligible to play in the UAAP, forgoing his final year at University of the East.

Pagsanjan spent three seasons with the Red Warriors.

In his final year, he averaged 5.08 points and 4.08 rebounds per contest.UAAP85-MBB-HARVEY-PAGSANJAN Harvey Pagsanjan forgoes senior year at UE, signs with Nueva Ecija Basketball MPBL News UAAP UE  - philippine sports news

It will not just be a reunion between Pagsanjan and his senior Philip Manalang as he will also return under the watchful eye of Jerson Cabiltes, his coach at Hope Christian Academy.

“Just very happy to have him here in Nueva Ecija as a homegrown player,” said Cabiltes as Pagsanjan is born and raised in Tarlac.

“We need to instill young blood and he is a perfect fit for us since he knows my system very well.”

Besides Pagsanjan, the Rice Vanguards also renewed Manalang, Jonathan Uyloan, Bobby Balucanag, Renz Palma, Byron Villarias, Jessie Collado, Michael Mabulac, Pamboy Raymundo, Michael Juico, JP Sarao, Chris Bitoon, Clark Derige, and John Arenas.
