Letran Squires standout Jolo Navarro joins NU Bulldogs


National University has once again scored a Kapampangan standout.

Jolo Navarro of Letran High School is heading to NU for college.

For the 19-year-old Squire, joining the Bulldogs is a dream come true.

“Sobrang happy po. Syempre, isa rin po kasi sa dream school ko ang makalaro sa NU,” he expressed.

“Masaya rin po ako sa mga panibagong opportunity and excited din po na makalaro sa UAAP. Malaking bagay din po sa’kin yon na makakatulong para sa next level of basketball ko po, to learn more or maximize my experience to grow as a player po,” the two-time NCAA juniors basketball champion continued.

Hailing from Masantol, Pampanga, Navarro also wanted to join fellow Kapampangans Jake Figueroa and Jolo Manansala at NU.

“Yes, very excited po ako. Isa rin sa mga dahilan kung bakit ko napili na mag-NU ay dahil ang iba sa mga magiging kasama ko ay mga Kapampangan din. Ang ilan sa kanila ay mga kaibigan ko na at mga naging teammate ko na rin,” he added.

During his Grade 12 year, the 6-foot-4 forward averaged 9.54 points and 7.23 rebounds per game.

Navarro, a product of Delta Pineda’s program and represented by Phenom Championship Clinic, was one of the go-to guys of Allen Ricardo.

He hopes that his game will translate well in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament.

“Siguro po ang tingin ko na madadala ko sa NU yung mga naging winning experience ko sa Letran,” he shared as he parts ways with good pal Titing Manalili, who opted to remain at Letran.

“Nagpapasalamat din po ako sa Letran dahil malaki din naitulong nila sa akin para makaabot sa ganitong bagong opportunities para sa’kin.”
