While its sister school is struggling with departures, Letran is gaining more assets. 

The Knights have added University of Santo Tomas High’s Lloyd Oliva and University of San Jose-Recoletos’ Dilcer Gaviola.

Oliva, who is fresh out of high school, is an old school post-up big who stands at 6-foot-5. In his senior year, he averaged 3.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 12 games played.

The young Oliva would have been a great addition to UST, which has lost seven of its student-athletes from last season.

On the other hand, Gaviola is a 6-foot-1 swingman who helped steer USJ-R to the 2019 CESAFI Partner’s Cup.

The two will join Chiang Kai Shek’s Rafael Go; National University’s Jeff Mailim and Jimly Lantaya; and Perpetual’s Yuki Kawamura as the fresh-out-of-high-school recruits of Letran in the off-season. All are eligible to play come NCAA Season 96.
