ROOKIE SPOTLIGHT: Joshua Yerro & Aaron Fermin

Do-It-All Power Forward Rookie Raring to Give His All

The pride of Cebu and former ace player of the Baby Lancers, Joshua Yerro started to play basketball at the age of seven, influenced by his uncle who had the same passion for the sport.

In his final year with the University of Visayas, the high-flyer was the top player in the Chooks to Go / NBTC CESAFI 24 rankings after filling up the stat sheets, norming averages of 18 pts-15 rebs-4 assts-3 stls per game, earning him the distinction of being the only Visayan representative in the 2019 NBTC League National finals.

Touted as last year’s most promising prospect from the CESAFI, the 6’1” player ultimately decided to be a Falcon, despite getting lucrative offers from other UAAP schools because of his late mother whom he envisioned in a dream prodding him to choose Adamson.

Soaring Falcons’ Super Rookie Big Man

Known in the NCAA Junior ranks for churning out MVP-like numbers especially in his last two years with Arellano High School, Aaron Fermin is ready to take his talents to the next level as he joins a squad that has been in the UAAP Final Four in the last three seasons.

Getting his first taste of the seniors’ brand of basketball, the big man strut his wares in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup, helping secure the 2nd runner-up finish for the Soaring Falcons. The 6’5” rookie is among the new players expected to step up after the departure of team captain Sean Maganti.

Citing the opportunity to learn from coach Franz Pumaren as the main reason for his decision to don the blue and white, the blue-chip recruit’s mettle will be tested, fresh from a double-double average of 15.6 points, 16.2 rebounds in his final year as King Brave.
