Bo Perasol is back doing what he does best for University of the Philippines – find the best available talent.
The Fighting Maroons’ new head of basketball of operations, along with team boosters Gov. Jonvic Remulla and Pato Gregorio, called up Fil-Am Nation Select to hold a private workout with three prospects in California.
Arriving during the workout that happened last weekend were Henry Galinato, Ethan Galang, and Jacob Bayla.
Of course, Galinato is the catch as he is automatically eligible to join UP come UAAP Season 84.
Galinato, 24, stands at 6-foot-6 and weighs 250 pounds. Despite his bruising frame, Galinato can finish at the low post.
He spent his junior and senior year with Benedictine University Mesa – a NAIA member school. Galinato averaged 13.0 points and 9.6 rebounds in his final year, earning him back-to-back All-Cal Pac honors.
With him already having a degree, he can be a “one-and-done” with UP.
Ethan Galang, on the other hand, is a 6-foot-3 guard but is currently in his redshirt year for Life Pacific University. If he decides to transfer to UP he has to sit out one year.
Six-foot-four guard Jacob Bayla is just 15 years young. He is currently studying in Valley Christian School.
