Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Breaking down UAAP colleges by HS recruits

This appears on

Breaking down UAAP colleges by HS recruits
by rick olivares

One of the contentions of the proponents of the now defunct Residency Rules was the "pirating" of a school's high school players.

During our initial research two years ago, we showed how very few of a high school team's players moved up to their school's senior ranks. And this year is no different.

Let's take a look at the Season 78 lineups of each UAAP school and find out how many moved up from their respective high schools.

Adamson - four from Adamson High School: William Polican, Frederick Tungcab, Gerald Fernandez, and Alwin Margallo.

Ateneo - five from Ateneo High School: Aaron Black, Matt Nieto, Mike Nieto, Von Pessumal, and Kiefer Ravena.

La Salle - none from De La Salle Zobel

FEU - four from FEU-FERN: Wendell Comboy, Richard Escoto, Russel Escoto, and Mike Tolomia.

NU - two from NU: Reggie Morido and Ralph Tansingco.

UE - one from UE HS: RR De Leon.

UP - one from UPIS: Diego Dario.

UST - one from UST high school: Kevin Ferrer.

So Ateneo has the most with five while FEU has four.

So where do the recruits come from? Here is a list of the high schools with the most number of recruits in UAAP college teams.

San Beda High School with eight: Ateneo's GBoy Babilonia, Ponso Gotladera, and Arvin Tolentino; La Salle's Andrei Caracut; NU's Nico Abatayo and Rev Diputado; UE's Chris Javier; and UP's Dave Moralde.

Ateneo de Cebu with six: Adamson's Dawn Ochea; NU's Dave Yu; UP's Henry Asilum, Jan Jaboneta, and Pio Longa; and UST's Zach Huang.

La Salle Greenhills with five: DLSU's John Gob, Prince Riveor, and Thomas Torres; UE's Mario Bonleon; and UP's Gelo Vito.

Xavier with five: Adamson's Harold Ng; Ateneo's Isaac Go; La Salle's Jeron Teng and UP's Jarrell Lim and Jet Manuel..

Hope Christian High School with four: Adamson's Ken Miranda; Ateneo's John Apacible, La Salle's Jollo Go, and NU's Tzaddy Rangel.

JRU HS with three: Adamson's Jerome Garcia and UST's Jeepy Faundo and Louie Vigil.

Chiang Kai Shek High School with there NU's Meds Salim and UE's Shannon Gagate and Fran Yu.

From other Metro Manila high schools: 18

From other provincial schools: 15

From abroad: (Fil-Fors and Africans): 22

So what are schools howling about? What? Losing one star player from a high school team. 

Because of one everyone else was affected by all the inanity.
