MOVING ON. Arvin Tolentino and Hubert Cani are eyeing to wear new colors - the green and gold of FEU.
While still waiting on possible returns by Mac Belo and Russel Escoto, Far Eastern University is set to welcome new weaponry straight from Katipunan Avenue.
Former Rookie of the Year Arvin Tolentino and once blue-chip recruit Hubert Cani are trading in the blue and white of Ateneo de Manila University for greener pastures with the Tamaraws.
Confirming reports that have circulated in the past days, coach Nash Racela said, “We are happy both Arvin and Hubert chose FEU.”
Sweet-shooting forward Tolentino and heady pointman Cani played for the Blue Eagles a year ago. Last month, however, they and five other teammates were left out of the lineup due to academic deficiencies.
Although he has finally spoken up about their new prospects from Ateneo, Racela quickly clarified that everything still needs to be formalized. As he put it, “Nothing official yet. We will meet with them and check their transfer documents so we can make it official.”
If the transfer of Tolentino and Cani does push through, they become the latest to bolt the nest in Katipunan. Earlier, Clint Doliguez moved to San Beda College while Jerie Pingoy enrolled in Adamson University.
