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.
