After passing the Board Exams for engineers and suiting up for Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas in the 2017 Fiba Asia Champions Cup, the blessings continue to pour in for the University of the Philippines standout as Barangay Ginebra picked him 12th in the first round of the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft.

With the Gin Kings faithful cheering his name as he stepped to the stage, Manuel couldn’t stop himself from smiling as he looked back on the amazing year that was.

“I’m just thankful for this opportunity that they are giving me and I promise that I won’t disappoint them,” he said.

Manuel, however, knows that being drafted is one thing and staying in the league is another.

And this early, he is looking forward to showing his wares and proving himself as he joins the back-to-back Governors’ Cup champions.

“Being part of the most storied franchise in the league is a huge blessing. As a player, I’m just excited to live up to the expectations that comes with it,” he said.
