Kobe Paras chooses new college following UCLA withdrawal

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – In basketball news, Kobe Paras has made his decision on his college future.

After withdrawing his admission from UCLA for academic reasons, the incoming college freshmen announced he will be going to school at Creighton University in Nebraska.

“There are a lot of coaches who hit me up after the incident,” said Kobe Paras.

“I felt really loved and it’s crazy that I saw there’s not just one school out there for me. There’s a lot of schools out there that I can choose, but I found the perfect fit and being a Blue Jay is what it is.”

Competition will be tough for Paras. Creighton plays in the big East Conference which includes NCAA champions Villanova, as well as Georgetown, Butler, and Marquette. In the school’s history, Creighton has produced NBA talent including former champion turned Coach Paul Silas.

Veteran Atlanta Hawks All Star, Kyle Korver, was also a Creighton Blue Jay.

The Chicago Bulls’ rising star, Doug McDermott was a 2014 AP College Player of the Year during his time at Creighton.

    Oh, come on…he did not “[withdraw] his admission from UCLA for academic reasons.” He was denied admission because his SAT scores (and maybe his grades) were not high enough! UCLA’s admission standards are higher than even some of the other UC institutions, and is among the most selective universities in the entire country. If Paras wasn’t academically qualified, then someone should’ve just said it to avoid this unnecessary PR headache. Kobe Paras, I wish you the best. He’ll be up against great competition in the Big East (obviously Nova, X, The Hall, Providence, etc.).

    It sounds really funny that there are many young FilAms here on American soil who academically make Kobe Paras the “Kodigo” exam passer but does not get a change to talk to Tito Steve…
