View Full Version : Quo vadis Ryan Buenafe?



Scout
10-14-2007, 03:43 PM
I'd like to hear it from Ryan Buenafe himself. Where is he really headed for college? Ateneo seemed like a lock until I spoke to a San Beda official, stating that the high school sensation is headed to Mendiola. UST on the other hand is also in there as Buenafe was seen at their game, wearing school colors. He also has been in touch with DLSU. FEU also has the Valenzona connection and has not been ruled out. Then again, will he stay put at SSC? Impossible as it may seem, but is this kid playing a very mean game of catch me if you can? :o

If so, then he really is as cunning as his game. It is impossible that he has enrolled in another school aside from SSC. We have no letter of intent, as in the US NCAA.

On the downside: his grades, though, leave much to be desired.... will he opt for ______________?

Your guess is as good as mine? No. Your guess is as good as it gets. ;)

Enrollment is still a couple of months away, & until a player enrolls into a college or university, a lot of things can still happen.

Once a player enrolls, though, & he is officially included into a team's lineup, then it'll be more difficult for him to transfer to another school. So I think enrollment is the best indication of where a player will go.

^ From the insider himself. Hirap talaga pag-sikat na recruit. Pinag-aagawan, pinagnanasaan, minsan naman sinisiraan at kung ano-ano pa man.

To our UAAP counterparts, dont blind yourself alone with this kid. Buenafe alone does not translate to championship. Manpowerwise, as far as I know, FEU is the one making the best moves to breakaway from rest. Buenafe is indeed the best high school prospect in the country but he can be negated by players that FEU have in its stockroom. Sorry kung medyo OT ng konti.

Sorry but off topic din. I have to agree on this one and I have to commend their recruitment year in and year out. They tend to get not-so-big names na mga players ("tago" in basketball recruitment terms) and then once they're there playing, magagaling pala at you get to think where did they get these guys.

Buenafe can sure contribute and can be a factor bringing in a championship but then there's no guarantee. Baka meron dyan sa tabi-tabi na hindi napapansin pero mas malupit pa pala sa kanya maglaro. Yun yung sa tingin kong mas nakakatakot because di masyado na-scout as compared to a more popular household name in Buenafe na nakita na yung laro. It will also depend on the collegiate team system that he'll join in. Pag fit sa kanya system, okay yan since he'll get the chance to develop and improve what he has. Kung di masyado maganda and fit for him yung system, yun yung magiging konting problema.

Quick question, how are Buenafe's grades? Are they really enough not only to warrant admission into a UAAP or NCAA school but more importantly to graduate from High School? Hmmm, I guess its about time I pay my former HS a visit.

Mrs. Aliwalas will most likely sing praises for this kid regardless of his performance in the classroom (she said the same thing about you 20 years ago di ba?). Maybe a Mrs. Miguel or a Ms. Tanedo may be a better source.

Seriously, all this talk about Buena-pay, este Buenafe going to this and that school and that he'll be getting this and this amount is somewhat disturbing not because the kid and his family appear to be hell bent on running up the bids for his services but more of them coming across as not knowing what to do with so many choices around. Nakakatakot for them because it leaves them open to be taken advantaged of in the long run.

Anyway, the grades thing was just a thought, I wish the kid and his family all the luck in the world. Seeing people like Buenafe really makes me think about things that I should have done differently in the past. A this point there would've have been 3 specific things: 1) Should have said no to smoking, 2) Exercised regularly and 3) Ditched the books for basketball.

The Bedan Hymn? We don't do that inside the Abbey. Only the Gregorian Chant.

Besides he's not a Bedan to sing the Hymn. In San Sebastian he sings "Hail to thee , dear Alma Mater. To you we pledge our loyalty......" If he starts singing a different "Hail" then somthing is in the works.

Personally, I prefer a Red Cub over a Staglet. Just like lekiboy.

totoo yun manong bchoter.. i've been monitoring the SSC games ever since I first watched Buenafe, Lee and Salamat beat the Red Cubs who were led by Hermida, Marcelo and our very own Melo Afuang.. so if he has sent feelers to the other schools, UST can still be in the Buenafe sweepstakes along with DLSU.. sa NCAA, Baste and Beda.. but it's really a longshot for UST.. :)

You can present evidence in many ways specially by just making it appear that the posts come from "reliable" sources. There are lots of creative ways of doing it.

I was pertaining to the different "types" of evidences: ex. documentary, physical, testimonial, etc. Forgive me if I am wrong with this. :) Everyday is a learning experience.

Just don't expect too much in his rookie year. Hardly was there a junior big man who made an impact on his college rookie year.

Magbalik tanaw kayo, the last was Benjie Paras in 1986.

He will contribute, but don't expect consistent MVP numbers from the kid at this stage.

erichubert
03-26-2008, 11:57 AM
But Ryan is not a big man, he is a wing man, 6'2 at most, he just played the 4 in high school because he was taller than most players. With his talent though, he should have his moments right on his first year. I can see him having the same impact as Eric Salamat when Salamat was a freshman- an energy guy that can provide instant offense based on talent alone.

oca
03-26-2008, 12:45 PM
Maybe I was loose in my use of the term "big man".

If you play either 4 or 5 in hs and move on to college, when you shift to 3 or even if you are a legit 4, you would no longer have the same advantage that you have in hs in terms of height and heft. Ang mahirap pa nito, these players who are as big as you, as tall as you, may actually be faster/ quicker than you.

Aside from that, it is common to see varsity players who are supposed to be in their second season, yet have logged 2 or even 3 years experience prior to their entry to the league. A "veteran" will hardly find difficulty in guarding any rookie. The rookiie will have his moments, but over a 40-minute stretch, pusta ako sa veteran.

Exception ang "small players". They play above the keyhole in hs, they will still play above the keyhole in college. They practically don't lose any advantage in terms of quickness.

Ryan Buenafe will going up against players whose size and quickness he has not encountered. He can spin and pivot, but he will be surprised that the help defense is NOT by a forward who stands 5'10" and 20 pounds lighter than him.

thats whats wrong with you peaple, you expect too much from the kid. for gods sake, his just a rookie and he wont be playing that much anyway together with the other blue chips since ateneo will be relying on their veterans. sus! maunod na lng kayo when S71 unfolds and lets just see what he can contribute and how he adjust to college ball bago kayo magsalita ng anu-ano. hindi lang si ryan b. and tinutokoy ko rito, kundi lahat ng mga rookies ng iba't ibang team.

Kabayang coreytaylor, you can't blame them for having high expectations on Ryan. Ryan's "basketball prowess" has been hyped too much and he had shown his wares very well during the past NCAA season. ;)

After checking with Coach Pido himself, it seems that I was a victim of disinformation. I apologize. :-[

Lets just give the kid a break and hopefully stop mentioning his defects. His still a kid, and GOD willing will use his abilities to better himself in all aspects of his life. Why not just dwell in discussing his capabilities in Basketball since that is his strength. ;)

Or is Baste getting back at him for walking around the campus wearing the T-shirt from the other school. Didn't someone say that one of the friars got very irritated by that?

Even if that is true there's still the summer for him to make up and pass these subjects.

I doubt that, the powers that be at SSCR may very well have been ticked-off by what he did but am sure they're level headed and mature individuals such that they won't resort to sabotaging a student's future.

summer is an option, but 4 subjects? in most schools failing 3 subjects = repeat.
but before we get to that, alamin muna natin kung talagang bumagsak. baka naman "chorva" lang yan ;D

Those Priests are religious CHRISTIAN leaders, & I'm pretty sure that it is not in their hearts the thought of something like, "Since di na natin mapakinabangan iyan, pahirapan na rin natin para di mapakinabangan ng iba."

Kung saan man sya mapunta abangan nyo yong laro at hindi kayo magtataka kung bakit napakontrobersyal at pinag-uusapan yung bata. Mag-aadjust pa yan sa first year nya but fear what that guy can do come his second season in college.

It's one thing to be hyped by fans or the media, but when gamefacers na ang naghype, talagang dapat pagkaguluhan. ;D

Besides, obviously the kid is more than hype. Mahusay talaga.

Kung sino man makakuha sa kanya, ipagtatanggol kung ano man akusasyon na ibato sa kanya. Ang di naman makakuha sa kanya, darating ang panahon na kung anu-ano ang sasabihin tungkol sa kanya.

Im not a huge Buenafe fan but admittedly the guy is a heck of a baller. Nakakapraning makakita ng naglalaro sa court na mukhang bored at tinatamad sa F4 at championship game. Is he all hype? I will stand with my initial evaluation.. Wait for his second season.

Peeps,

I am not the type who will malign Ryan Buenafe. I just received an info which I would consider a 'rumor' that is why I raised the question. *Unfortunately, no one has confirmed or denied the rumor. *

Ryan Buenafe is just a kid and this is a basketball thread. *For me it is immaterial where he goes to college. *Ke Ateneo, La Salle o UP magpunta yan, let's wish him good luck. *

Buenafe dons Ateneo jersey in tune-up game
by Christian Soler
Thursday, 10 April 2008

TUNE-UP games don’t necessarily attract as much attention compared to contests that matter. Last Wednesday’s Ateneo-Jose Rizal University tilt, however, was an eye-catcher.

The matchup, won by the Blue Eagles 77-71 at the Moro Lorenzo Sports Complex, featured one of the most sought-after high school prospects in recent memory in a Blue and White jersey. Reigning NCAA Juniors basketball Most Valuable Player Ryan Buenafe, along with two other prized recruits, suited up for the Katipunan-based squad in a practice game that could very well lay to rest all the debates about where the 6’1” stalwart is going to attend college.

Two other high school superstars, Chiang Kai Shek’s Justin Chua and San Beda’s Nico Salva, also took the floor against the Heavy Bombers. A third, Vince Burke of Faith Academy and a teammate of current Blue Eagle Kirk Long was on the Ateneo bench but did not play. A reliable source who witnessed the game said Buenafe looked a little out of shape compared to Salva, who “was more active and had better court sense [in that game].”


Three preseason tournaments, to be kicked off by the Filoil Flying V showdown at the Philsports Arena this Sunday, April 13, will ultimately determine where Buenafe and even Chua and Salva will end up this season. Buenafe’s exhibition stint with Ateneo, though, can be seen as a step closer to unlocking the mystery surrounding his collegiate destination. Over the past six months, he has been linked to his high school, San Sebastian, San Beda and even De La Salle.

Buenafe led the San Sebastian Staglets to a three-peat this past season, averaging 32.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 8.5 assists in his quintet’s two-game sweep of the Letran Squires. He also registered four triple-doubles in 12 appearances in his last playing year in the Juniors division
