Repost: Kobe Paras Withdraws from UCLA for Failing to Meet to ‘Academic Conditions’

Image courtesy of www.sports.inquirer.net


Filipino rising star Kobe Paras has withdrawn from University of California, Los Angeles after failing to meet the school’s “academic conditions of his admission,” a statement from the university said.

NBC Sports and other international sports websites reported UCLA’s statement late Wednesday (Manila time).

“Incoming freshman guard Kobe Paras, admitted upon condition to UCLA, has withdrawn from the university due to academic conditions of his admission not being met,” the full statement read.

The 6-foot-6 incoming freshman, son of PBA legend Benjie Paras, made waves as a promising high school player out of Cathedral High School in LA.

Paras’ sheer athleticism, length and potential got him an offer at UCLA as he signed a National Letter of Intent to be part of the team in October of last year.

Before taking his talents to the United States, Paras played for La Salle-Greenhills.

    2. 10:31 choosy pa eh dun mas likely syang marecruit ng NBA at makakuha ng good education at the same time. Ano nman pag-asa niya sa La Salle? Maraming college recruitrs nag-offer sa kanya and he's half-white, so your arguments are invalid.

    3. 2:46 ANG DAMI DAMI DAMI DAMING ibang schools sa US, when it comes to athletics, better pa nga ang kapitbahay ng UCLA- USC, but again, compared to black athletes, miske white people, mahihina. Ano ba namang mapagmamalaki ni Kobe Paras, 6'6" is average sa NBA, ang wing span nya, gano kahaba? He's a worthless defender. Ayan, pinatunayan lang ng Cavs na defense wins championships Magkakatalo na lang sa maambag nya sa offense. Is he even a good shooter? Comparable to the likes of Jeremy Lin? Kung Chinese pa sya, baka sakaling pansinin sya dahil ang LAKING market ng China for NBA. Eh Pilipinas?

  35. Mabigat ang pag abot niya ng kanyang pangarap kasi may galit sa puso niya. Until now di pa niya napatawad ang kanyang ina. Baka way rin yan ng maylikha para ipa realized sa kanya ang lahat. Sana this time matutu na siya magpakumbaba hindi naman kailangan maging sobrang close sa mother na umiwan sayo pero mapatawad mo lang Sapat na yon para mayroon kang peace of mind sa paglalakbay at pag abot ng pangarap mo. Ang dasal ng Nanay ang mas powerful kisa sa dasal ng tatay kasi ang Nanay ang tumaya ng buhay niya para mapalabas ka at makita ang mundo. Hangad ko maabot mo ang pangarap mo Kobe na maging NBA player balang araw pero sana patawarin muna ang mother mo at patawarin ang pagkukulang niya sayo. Good luck.. hindi pa naman tapos ang lahat marami ka pang chance may next year pa naman.
