MANILA, Philippines – In a blow to University of the East (UE), top hitter and former Rookie of the Year Edward Camposano has decided to transfer to National University (NU).
A star in UE's high school team who moved up to their seniors squad, Camposano won Rookie of the Year honors in Season 77 despite the Red Warriors losing all of their games.
NU head coach Dante Alinsunurin confirmed the development.
"Lumipat na siya sa amin," said Alinsunurin, who also revealed that Camposano already suited up for the Bulldogs in the Kidlat Cup, a fundraising tournament held for former Far Eastern University mentor Kid Santos.
Camposano was often the lone bright spot for a struggling UE team in the UAAP. The Red Warriors have won only one game in the past three seasons.
He will serve his residency this year but is expected to suit up for NU in Season 81.
Camposano's transfer is a big boost to NU, who are trying to topple Ateneo de Manila University at the top of the UAAP.
