Another Tiger is leaving the University of Santo Tomas’ lair.
Brent Paraiso is reportedly following CJ Cansino’s exit last week after confirming earlier reports of his departure in light of the school’s training bubble controversy.
“Nakakalungkot pero kailangan. Mahal na mahal kita UST,” Paraiso wrote.
A Spin.ph source added that a final decision has yet to be made with regards to Paraiso’s transfer. Per Tiebreaker Times’s source, Paraiso withdrew from all of his subjects.
The 6-foot-2 guard, who only played for one year in UST, would exhaust his playing years in the UAAP but could suit up for a year once more should he join other collegiate leagues.
He could also take his basketball career to another level by signing up in the pro leagues such as MPBL, ABL or PBA.
A product of De La Salle Zobel, the 22-year-old Paraiso stayed with De La Salle in college for two years.
Paraiso was part of the UAAP Season 79 champion team led by Jeron Teng and Ben Mbala under coach Aldin Ayo, who eventually transferred to the Tigers.
The probe, participated by the Joint Administrative Order group (Games and Amusements Board, Philippine Sports Commission and Department of Health) the Commission on Higher Education, UAAP and UST, has yet to reach its conclusion.
