NATIONAL University further boosted its basketball program after successfully recruiting Kenji Duremdes to the team.
SPIN.ph got the confirmation from a source about the son of PBA great Kenneth Duremdes being included in the Bullpups’ line-up in the Paya basketball league, a tournament for players aged 15 below.
The 14-year-old player is also expected to suit up for NU in the Passerelle division when the Bullpups compete in the BEST Center, according to a source.
Duremdes, a 6-foot-2 forward, was one of the standouts in the recent Jr. NBA National Training Camp.
The young Duremdes transferred to NU after playing for La Salle Greenhills in the SBP division where he led the Greenies to two titles during the BEST Center national finals.
Incidentally, Duremdes will be playing in the Paya alongside another son of a former PBA player in Echo Laure, who had earlier committed to play for the Bullpups after suiting up for University of Santo Tomas. Echo is the son of ex-pro Eddie Laure.
