LOOK: Robert Bolick bids a heartfelt farewell to San Beda
"KING LION, SIGNING OFF!"

The sun has set on Robert Bolick's collegiate career, and boy, was it one for the books. 

The 23-year old former De La Salle Green Archer made his way to San Beda and immediately made an impact, helping lead the Red Lions to three straight NCAA Men's Basketball Championships. 

In those three magical seasons with San Beda, Bolick slowly established himself as the undisputed King Lion, and rightfully so. 

Now, Bolick sets his sights on the big leagues, as he's expected to be one of the top picks in the upcoming PBA Draft. 

Before making the jump however, Bolick made sure to give one final, heartfelt shoutout to the community that welcomed him with open arms more than three years ago. 

A day after helping San Beda capture the NCAA Season 94 Men's Basketball crown, Bolick took to Instagram to show his alma mater some love.
