Ateneo de Manila University continues to beef up its roster as it secured the services of Filipino-American guard Jared Brown for the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 86 next year.
The 21-year-old guard from Westmont College is expected to arrive next week and will play for three years after redshirting in the upcoming season.
In his last season with Westmont, the 5-foot-10 Brown averaged 15.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists as the Warriors managed to reach the semifinals before bowing to Ottawa University Surprise, 95-76, in the Golden State Athletic Conference.
Brown, the brother-in-law of NLEX guard Kris Rosales, scored 17 points in his final game with Westmont.
Brown admitted that there were offers from other schools but he chose Ateneo due to its winning culture, good education and solid athletic program.
