After going all-out for FEU, reliable big man Raymar Jose is poised to deliver in the pros.
Before the PBA Draft this Sunday, let's revisit some of the college highlights of this year's top projected picks to offer a kind of glimpse of what they could bring in the pros.
SCHOOL: Far Eastern University
MONICKER / NICKNAME: Toto
Raymar Jose has a smooth inside-out game that has become a hot commodity. He has a soft touch from the perimeter and an array of post-moves that can keep defenders guessing.
The former Far Eastern U Tamaraw's shining moment came during a Final Four match-up against Ateneo back in UAAP season 79.
In what could have been his final game in an FEU uniform, Toto willed the Tamaraws to force a decider over the Blue Eagles with a herculean 20-point, 23-rebound performance as he extended his UAAP career for one more game, keeping their season alive at the same time.
Jose's hefty 6'4" frame and uniquely versatile offensive arsenal sets him apart not just from his fellow rookies, but also from other players in the PBA.
The experience and leadership Jose has amassed during his days as one of FEU's key cogs, and a brief stint with ASEAN Basketball League squad Kaohsiung Truth only adds to his overall readiness as he heads to the pros.
