Jared Brown transfers from Westmont to Ateneo

Ateneo continues to load up after its wave of graduates the past season.

Jared Brown has committed to transfer to Ateneo de Manila University.

The 5-foot-10 guard made the announcement on his Instagram account.

Brown has already played three years with NAIA member school Westmont College. He will have to sit out a year before getting to suit up for Ateneo in UAAP Season 86.

Brown is eligible for three years as the 2020 collegiate season in the US is not counted in a student-athlete’s ledger.

“It was definitely a tough decision. I had a pretty good situation out here,” said Brown in a press conference held at Dragon’s Nest. “I played for a pretty good program in the States, played all three years, got a lot of playing time. It was kind of my team.

“But when Monch [Manaloto] gave me the opportunity to meet Coach Tab [Baldwin] and Boss Epok Quimpo, obviously I already knew the Ateneo program is big in the Philippines and I wanted to be part of something special. It was kind of a no-brainer because I knew what this opportunity was gonna do for my career. I’m excited to be part of something special even though I have to sit out this year,” he added.

In his three-year stay with the Warriors, Brown averaged 13.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. During his junior year, he normed 15.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists. in 27 games played.

He is also a good friend of Chris Koon and the brother-in-law of Kris Rosales.
