Andrei Caracut, Jollo Go, Aljun Melecio, and Kib Montalbo have a new squad member in De La Salle University’s explosive guard rotation.
Jordan Bartlett announced through social media last Monday night that he is now a member of the Green Archers.
After a lot of prayer, consideration and workouts with several teams, I am proud and blessed to announce that I will continue my UAAP career with the De La Salle Green Archers. Thank you all for the love and support during my transition. 💚🏹 #SZN82 pic.twitter.com/cqlsjToUSl— Jordan Bartlett (@halfaflip) March 5, 2018
In turn, Caracut, Melecio, and Montalbo only had a warm welcome prepared for their new running mate.

The Filipino-American guard spent the last two years in National University – the first of which was for residency and the second of which was Season 80.
There, he averaged 5.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 11.3 minutes. His best game, interestingly, came against the Taft-based team when he dropped 23 points.
After the season, however, Bartlett decided to leave the Bulldogs camp. He reportedly also tried out for College of St. Benilde and Far Eastern University.
The 20-year-old will be eligible to play for DLSU for four more years.
