    He is a future candidate for the 2023 Philippines Team. He is a 6'4" player a very good shot blocker, decent shooter, and dunker. He might be the next Gabe Norwood

    This kid has potential. When you outplay Thirdy you're probably good. But he's probably 6'3. A bit taller than Thirdy.

    I’ve actually noticed there’s some athletic talent in the provinces. I remember seeing footage of Mark Nonoys teammates doing off the backboard dunks.

    Rhenz has been discussed in the "Future SF to Replace Norwood Thread". and according to some posters, the guy is 100% legit, in spite of the unnecessary "h" in "Rhenz"

    I've seen him listed 6'2" and 6'3". Likely closer to 6'2". So Rhenz could be 6'3"-6'4". But honestly what's a couple inches right?
    So far it seems he's our closest to being that true wing defender. I'd prefer a 6'6"+ type so they could cover taller SF's that are nowadays 6'8"-6'9" a lil easier but hey he looks good out there!

    It matters bro.

    Just think of a 2-inch taller version of Calvin Abueva, or a 2-inch taller version of Troy Rosario. I think it has some significant difference

    Looks promising. What is his age?

    I doubt he'll make the age cut. He's a third-year transfer.
    Keep running, big boy.

    hoping he'll become a 6'5-6'6 Kenneth Duremdes in the future.

    I’m kind of baffled how player like this managed to slip through the ranks at the high school level and wasn’t part of any Batang Gilas teams.

    There are so many MANY players on his caliber at high school level but an like many ibners said an inch or two height disadvantage will make sbp scouts bypass him..

    the pipeline of sbp is always relies on uaap ncaa teams.. the ncaa uaap teams will recruit junior players from palarong pambansa or regional meets..

    many of these provincial players have only developed when they joined a good basketball program.

    The thing is he’s 6’4 with a good wingspan and athleticism. The potential is high and he doesn’t play like a traditional 6’4 player that you see in local leagues. I mean past Batang Gilas teams had guys like will Gozum who is really the same height and not 6’6 playing Center. Makes me wonder how many others with this kind of potential aren’t discovered because they haven’t played in the uaap/ncaa.
