Though their respective NCAA careers did not end the way they wanted, Arellano’s Kent Salado and Perpetual’s Edgar Charcos are looking ahead to the next stage of their careers.
The two guards have declared their intention to enter the 2019 PBA Rookie Draft.
“Magpapa-draft ako. Sana palarin,” said Salado, a 5-foot-8 point guard from Cagayan de Oro.
“Ako, mag-aapply na ako sa draft,” added Charcos, who also stands at 5-foot-8 and hails from Negros Occidental.
The 24-year-old Salado posted norms of 16.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.6 steals per game. Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Charcos had averages of 12.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 0.8 steals.
Salado — who returned for his final year after an ACL tear back in 2017 — could not get Arellano out of the cellar, as the Chiefs ended their NCAA Season 95 campaign with a 4-14 record.
Charcos was also unsuccessful, as Perpetual ended their campaign with a 5-13 slate.
If the gamble of the two does not pay off, Salado will sign with MPBL club team Manila Stars. Charcos, on the other hand, looks to sign with a team from the league as well.
