ADAMSON will have three core players from its successful high school program suiting up for the Falcons.
Matt Erolon, Joshua Barcelona, and Didat Hanapi have committed to remain with the Soaring Falcons as they move up to the seniors level.
Spin.ph sources confirmed the news, adding more youth to an Adamson squad which just lost Jerrick Ahanmisi and will now rely on holdovers Jerom Lastimosa, Joem Sabandal, and AP Manlapaz.
Erolon is a 6-foot guard from Dumaguete who was a solid scorer last UAAP Season 82 as he tallied 15.4 points on 31-percent shooting from threes, alongside 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.7 steals in 31 minutes to help the Baby Falcons finish at third place in the boys basketball tournament.
Meanwhile, Barcelona is a 6-foot-4 Fil-Brit forward who showed glimpses of his athleticism and netted 7.3 points on 53-percent shooting, to go with 6.3 boards in 18 minutes in his sophomore year.
Hanapi is a 6-foot-2 slasher from Zamboanga City who garnered 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 20 minutes last season.
They are all eligible to play for the Soaring Falcons as early as UAAP Season 84, pencilled for September this year.
The three are expected to be a huge shot in the arm for Adamson moving forward, while also awaiting the decision of last year's Juniors MVP Jake Figueroa.
The Soaring Falcons went 4-10 last season, and are facing a coaching dilemma with coach Franz Pumaren reportedly looking to retire.
