    Looks like he’s from Canada. I feel like he would represent them even if he did happen to be part Filipino.

    I think so to but he’s still only 14. Not to mention in the interview he says he started playing basketball in a Filipino league not to mention he seems close to the Filipino community https://youtu.be/tR9oKLOpKE0 (2:24 he’s posing with what looks to be some Filipino basketball kids) he’s number 1 ranked in the world for his age, wouldn’t hurt to ask.

    Yung mga kagaya nito ni Jeremiah Gray ang kailangan natin mainform ng maaga para hindi maging "ineligibles", For sure, If he only knew then about the Gilas program early. He will suit up for the National Team. Imagine a wing, shooter and ultra athletic type of a player. He almost doubt himself as a player. His mother, A filipina born and raised here and migrated when she was 17 yrs old.

    A late-bloomer in basketball, even if the SBP knew him already even before his 16th birthday, I doubt that they will invite him for the youth team of the Philippines. This case is one of the reason why the SBP should communicate with the family of even an unknown fil-foreigner ballers. Duncan brothers are also one of the many "sayang" that could help the Gilas team, even 6'5 combo guard(2-way player with huge wingspan for his height) Robin Duncan who is only a freshman but started many games alongside his kuya in Vermont could help the U-19 squad that currently competing in Greece..

    Yes. Probably a late bloomer, he had a growth spurt from 5' 6" to 6'3" in jr. high. Now standing at 6'5" can dribble the ball. Has better offensive arsenal , in a mold of "gabe norwood". However if only he was early on sbp radar 7 yrs ago, they should have informed him at least to secure his passport. Irregardless if he choose to play locally or abroad during college. I'm pretty sure there are still like him today, who are under 16 who have the potential to play for gilas but still don't know about the "hagop rule".

    Jeremiah Grey is the kind of player most of us envisioned Kobe paras to be.

    Grey's offense is definitely better than Norwood.

    Another "sayang" na player is Grey's teammate in Mighty Sports that played in the Dubai International Tournament last February: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZk3GvoDCV8&t=31s

    If all of this fil-fors are only eligible, no Hagup rule, damn Gilas would surely be a contender, the only downside is It will not look like a Filipino team, but who cares they really are Filipinos, or at least just choose 6 of the Best Fil-foreigners and mix them with our best homegrown players.

    sayang din si Ballungay.That guy does not look like a foreigner at all and plays like a 6'7 vergel meneses at his prime.I hope we could recruit as early as 14 years old.A lot of them are in the radar when they are around 17,sometimes older.

    The problem with recruiting very young players is that it's hard to make an objective assessment of their ceiling and floor. Even the NBA is contemplating about their one and done rule due to the ever growing list of busts and underperformers, and we are talking about around 18 year old kids here. One has to be really exceptional either in skills or physical tools to merit an investment at such an early age from an NT standpoint.
    Never look too far ahead. You might stumble on a block right in front of you.

    as long as we inform them and probably assist them in getting a passport then we can secure them to play for the my in the future.The sbp can start will the dissimination of information in the Filipino leagues.

    Adams shoots 3's better than Sean Anthony.

    The only investment here is to assist them getting the passport. Then monitor their progress thru contacts on various Fil-AM leagues.

    Malaking tulong to.. yon e kung totoo ngang nakakuha sya ng passport ng 9 yrs old pa lang..lol, mahirap kasi baka parang JC lang nakakuha daw before 16..wla naman mapakita.. Roosevelt Adams, Another 6'5", can handle the ball, steady shooter, athletic.. fit na fit sa international game.

    “But what Tiu is most excited about is how Adams will deliver in this game. According to the youthful tactician, the 6-foot-5 sniper is eligible to play for Gilas Pilipinas as he already has a Philippine passport back when he was still just nine years old.

    “He actually had a passport when he was nine except he just has to find it!”
