    Kiefer Ravena Not Yet Recruited By Top Schools

    The college hoops recruitment season has started but the top national High School player in the name of Kiefer Ravena has not yet been recruited. That is very unusual considering that he is a very good point-guard.

    Kiefer has a good basketball genes. He is the son of a former PBA player Bong Ravena and his mother was a former volleyball star in UST, Mozzy Ravena. He also has a sterling career with the Ateneo Blue Eaglets to back him up when he wants to enter a team.

    He has a season best averages of 20.9 points, he has led the UAAP juniors in scoring via 51 percent shooting, 5.5 rebounds a game, 5.2 assists per gam, and 2.6 steals per game. He did those in just 25.7 minutes. He's arguably the best High School Baller out there. The fans of Baser Amer can argue about this one.

    He's a two time MVP of the UAAP Juniors and he has led the Blue Eaglets to its third straight championship title. The only thing now is that there are no offers that should have been knocking on his doors. That is very incredible.

    In an interview Kiefer said, “Ngayon, to be honest, wala pang school na kumakausap sa akin, as in yung talk with my parents and me,” Ravena said recently. “Syempre, meron siguro yung mga nagsasabi na ‘dito ka, dito ka na,’ pero yung formal talk, wala pa.”

    Before the National University Bulldogs of Henry Sy have been wooing this cager to play for them but after they have acquired Cedric Labing-isa, Bobby Parks Jr. and Kyle Neypes they have stopped from asking this cager. When they asked him before Kiefer said, "that he has not yet decided on which school to choose and stressed that his studies are his priority for now."

    He also said, “Wala pa akong napili, mahirap magsabi pero kailangan talaga muna namin tapusin yung high school. Then I’ll take it from there.”

    The Ateneo De Manila Blue Eagles Head Coach Norman Black said, " I hope Ravena would not leave the Katipunan-based school, which will be bolstered by another blue-chip rookie next year in 7-foot Greg Slaughter, a national team member. We hope he would end up here,” Black said after the Blue Eagles’ three-peat-title-clinching 65-62 victory over Far Eastern University last month regarding Ravena’s future.

    With all the praises that he's been receiving, the very humble Kiefer Ravena said:

    "Siguro exposed lang ako dito sa Ateneo kaya (nagkakaroon ako ng ganitong recognition). Pero yung title na ‘ako ang pinaka-magaling,’ ang daming sobrang magagaling dyan na hindi lang nakikita,” he said. “Very lucky ako na naglalaro ako sa UAAP na sometimes get televised so maraming nakakakita. But I believe that there are also other high school players my age that are very good. Sila rin yung future ng Philippine basketball, who will bring the country back to the basketball world.”
