Jett Manuel raring to prove worth as member of Chooks Pilipinas

MANILA, Philippines — Jett Manuel wanted to prove that he still is one of the top prospects to come out of the amateur side.

Now, he’s getting the opportunity to do just that. And he wants to make it clear that he's doing it for himself.

“That I belong,” he said of his agenda. “I’ve always thought that I can. Proving to people is not really my thing, its just that I'm focusing on the things I've worked on myself.”

The former University of the Philippines Fighting Maroon is one of the cagers comprising the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas roster that will be competing in the FIBA Asia Cup Championships in China this weekend.

“I’ve always thought I’ve had the potential, the talent to play in the next level. I’ve worked hard for it,” Manuel continued. “(This is) something I don’t want to let go.”

Manuel will be taking the backseat behind names like Kiefer Ravena, Jeron Teng and Raymar Jose, who are all expected — but are yet to declare their intention — to enter the upcoming PBA draft.
