DLSU's Revilla beats PBA draft deadline as list swells to record 84

The 10 Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) teams will have plenty of young talent to choose from after the list of applicants for the 2013 PBA Rookie Draft stood at a record high of 84 at the close of the application period Friday afternoon.

Among those who beat the 5:00PM deadline was La Salle point guard LA Revilla, who made the last-minute decision to forego his final season with UAAP champion Green Archers and rushed to the PBA office in Libis, Quezon City to submit his application. A few hours earlier, UAAP MVP Terrence Romeo of FEU also submitted his application.

Revilla and Romeo join what is considered by many to be the deepest draft in years, with marquee names such as Greg Slaughter of Ateneo, Raymund Almazan of Letran, and RR Garcia of FEU.

The draft is set on November 3 at Robinsons Place Manila, with Barangay Ginebra owning the top overall pick.

Romeo is the youngest applicant, having just turned 21 last March, while the oldest is San Sebastian's Franz Delgado, who will turn 29 in December. Slaughter is the only seven-footer in the draft, with the second-tallest player being six-foot-nine Fil-American Isaac Holstein of West Virginia. Five other players - Almazan, Vince Tinte of UST, JP Erram of Ateneo, SSC's Ian Sangalang, and John Usita of Shoreline Community College - stand at least six-eight.
