    BASER Amer respects the decision of Evan Nelle to move from San Beda to La Salle.

    The Meralco guard told The Prospects Pod that he finds no issue with the 5-foot-11 court general leaving Mendiola for Taft.

    "Para sa akin, desisyon ng bata yun," he said. "Syempre pag nagdecision siya, sasabihin niya sa family niya. So talagang yung family niya sinuportahan na lang siguro yung bata. Ganoon lang yun."

    Like Amer, Nelle rose from the Red Cubs program to become the lead playmaker for the Red Lions in the seniors division.

    It was in Nelle's sophomore year where he had his breakout, tallying 10.2 points, 6.7 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.6 steals, earning his place in the Mythical Team in Season 95 won by Letran.

    After that standout performance last year, the 21-year-old chose to move to La Salle.

    Nelle will be cleared to play in UAAP Season 84.

    Amer said that movements like those are just normal. After all, he also encountered offers back then to leave San Beda.

    "Nung last year ko nung high school, maraming nagre-recruit," he said.

    Those suitors continued to chase him even when he started playing for the Red Lions, with Amer noting that National University was intent on securing his services.

    "Syempre ako pa rin yung masusunod, so nag-stay ako sa San Beda. Gusto ko mag-stay sa San Beda eh. Ganoon lang naman," he said.

    Amer's decorated NCAA career was a springbard to the PBA, where the Bolts took him seventh in the 2015 PBA Draft.
