Ateneo High’s Rafael Pangilinan Commits to UST Growling Tigers


University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers continued to shore up its roster after securing the commitment of Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eaglets forward Rafael Pangilinan.

Growling Tigers interim coach Jino Manansala confirmed to Fastbreak on Wednesday the arrival of Pangilinan, who will join fellow former Blue Eaglet Daniel Coo at the UST camp.

“It’s confirmed that Rafael has already committed to UST,” Manansala said. “He will be an added boost to the team’s wing position.”

Pangilinan was the fourth recruit of Manansala since being named as head coach of Growling Tigers earlier this month, replacing the suspended Aldin Ayo.

Manansala has earlier secured the commitments of St. Clare Saints standout Johnsherick Estrada, Our Lady of Fatima University star Nikko Panganiban and Arellano University Braves’ Romuel Junsay.
