Sage Tolentino commits to Auburn Tigers


Fil-American tower Sage Tolentino has officially committed to Auburn University Tigers, which is part of NCAA US Division I.

The Hawaiian-based prospect took on Instagram to announce his latest move, while the East West Private, who happens to handle both Tolentino and G-League bound Filipino hooper Kai Sotto, also shared the news.

“My family and I have prayed about this day since I was a kid. I am beyond blessed and I give God all the Glory,” said Tolentino.

“Auburn University’s core traditions are passion and spirit and they are exactly the program I want to spend my time at developing at the next level. It’s great to be an Auburn Tiger. War Eagle!”

The Tigers, who recently reached the Final Four last year, have produced notable alumni like Charles Barkley and Chuck Person.

The 16-year old Tolentino had an outstanding stint at Maryknoll High School, posting 13.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks to lead the team in a back-to-back State Championships.
