Can the Process also become synonymous with the Fighting Maroons?
Is Javi Gomez de Liano trying to recruit Ricci Rivero to Diliman?
The UP Fighting Maroon just raised eyebrows as he tweeted his thoughts on Ricci Rivero's shocking announcement Thursday morning.
Rivero startled the Philippine Twitter scene when he announced his apparent departure from the Green Archers, fueling speculation on where he might just go next.

To add fuel to the fire, the former UPIS product urged the UAAP Season 80 Mythical Five member to 'join the process', which possibly alludes to the successful rebuilding efforts of UP, which saw them nab star bigman Bright Akhuetie from the NCAA.
Of course, the phrase "trust the process" originated from the Philadelphia 76ers tanking effort in order to draw young and upcoming stars like Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, Ben Simmons, and Markelle Fultz.
While the Nigerian is already eligible to play for the Maroons in Season 81, Rivero will have to wait a little longer for playing time if he transfers to the vast piece of land that is the UP Diliman campus due to eligibility rules.
Just like the Sixers, who have already booked a ticket to this year's NBA playoffs, let's see if a successful recruiting move can propel UP back to the Final Four for the first time since 1997.
Let's just wait and see for further announcements.
