Kobe Paras commits to Creighton Bluejays


After a fallout with the UCLA Bruins, Kobe Paras has finally decided where he will be taking his tertiary education.

Paras, 18, has committed to Creighton University, a Jesuit school, and play for the the team’s men’s basketball team, the Bluejays.

The consensus three-star recruit committed to UCLA but withdrew due to an “anomaly” with his SAT scores. Once cleared, the former La Salle Greenhills standout can immediately suit-up for the Bluejays in its Big East campaign.

Josh Gershon, a basketball scout and a national recruiting analyst for website Scout.com first broke the news Monday afternoon (Philippine time).

Creighton University is located in Omaha, Nebraska. The team’s basketball team is situated in the Big East Conference and is a Division I team.

The Nebraska-based squad was not invited to the NCAA tournament a year ago. Moreover, the Bluejays were eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2016 National Invitational Tournament by BYU.

Notable basketball players produced by the program over the past 15 years include sharpshooter Kyle Korver, stretch big man Anthony Tolliver, and the school’s all-time leading scorer Doug McDermott of the Chicago Bulls.
