CJ Perez makes his debut for Ateneo in the 2016 Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup on Thursday.

According to a press release by the league, Perez is set to suit up for the Blue Eagles in their match against Letran set at 5 p.m. as they look to improve their record that stands at 1-1.

Perez has been playing for Ateneo’s Team B since moving from San Sebastian two years ago, but this will be the first time he will see action with the potential UAAP line-up as he becomes eligible to suit up for the Blue Eagles in the coming Season 79.

Perez played for two seasons with San Sebastian following the graduation of Calvin Abueva, Ronald Pascual, and Ian Sangalang before moving to Ateneo.

Other seniors matches on Thursday will see Emilio Aguinaldo College against College of Saint Benilde at 1:30 p.m., and Mapua versus San Beda at 3:15 p.m.
