After moving from one school to another, Joshua Ramirez has finally found a school where he will settle in for good.
The Letran product has committed to Far Eastern University.
Tamaraws head coach Olsen Racela confirmed the development to Tiebreaker Times.
“I think he will have an immediate impact on our program,” said Racela.
The 6-foot-4 winger initially committed to Letran last October 29, with Knights head coach Bonnie Tan even going to Tarlac City to secure his allegiance to the Colegio.
However, the 20-year-old decommitted from Letran and joined De La Salle University back on February 4.
With La Salle stacking up its lineup, Ramirez decided to leave La Salle last September 6.
For its part, FEU did its homework, clearing things up with La Salle first before enrolling Ramirez.
“Before we recruited him, we talked to coaches from La Salle and cleared everything. Ayaw naman namin na may maapakan kami. So we cleared everything with the coaches of La Salle. And he did not enroll naman sa kanila, making him eligible for Season 83,” said Racela.
Ramirez averaged 13.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 27.3 minutes for the Squires during the NCAA Season 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament.
He was part of Gilas Youth that competed in the FIBA U18 Asian Championship in 2018.
Ramirez, who is eligible for UAAP Season 83, joins Ximone Sandagon as the key recruits of FEU during the off-season.
