Dwight Ramos believes Ateneo will be ‘super strong’ even without him

Dwight Ramos would be the biggest what-if for UAAP in the years to come. 

Displaying a plethora of great performances for Gilas, Ramos would have been a sure fan-favorite for the Ateneo in the UAAP.

However, the 6-foot-4 combo guard decided to take his talents to Japan with the B.League Division I team Toyama Grouses.

Asked about what could have happened if he stayed with the Blue Eagles and went on to play in the UAAP, Ramos had no doubts answering.

“To be honest, in my opinion, I think we would have won the title for sure,” said Ramos on Radyo 5’s Power and Play.

But even without him, Ramos still thinks that Ateneo will be the favorite once collegiate action returns.

After all, the Blue Eagles still have Ange Kouame, SJ Belangel, Gian Mamuyac, Tyler Tio, Raffy Verano, Jolo Mendoza, Matthew Daves, and a ton of new recruits led by transferee Dave Ildefonso.

Also eligible for the Blue Eagles in Season 84 are the likes of Joshua Lazaro, Forthsky Padrigao, Chris Koon, and Andrew Bongo.

“Even without me, that team is really strong and they have a lot of new guys. Everybody’s just been working hard so I think even without me that team is gonna be super strong too,” said Ramos.

But there’s another “what if” in Dwight’s mind. What if he and his brother Eli played together for the Blue Eagles?

“I really wanted to play for Ateneo because I really wanted to play with my brother there and share that whole Ateneo and UAAP experience,” said Dwight.

But playing together with his brother has to wait a few more years when they can team up professionally in the future.

For now, Dwight will have to settle on watching Eli and the whole Ateneo squad take on the UAAP playing field.

“I’m excited to watch them when the season starts!”
