A Reedly Intenational School standout, Javelosa is said to commit to the UAAP five-feat champion team to join forces with Arvin Tolentino and Thirdy Ravena in helping Ateneo redeem its lost glory.
Javelosa is a not stranger in Katipunan as he had used to play for the Ateneo Blue Eaglets of the UAAP Juniors’ before transferring to Reedly.
Despite flying under the radar of many, the 6’5 big man has a record for playing for Philippine team to the Adidas Nations 2013 and the U16 squad that finished fourth in the 2011 FIBA-Asia Championship.
With the arrival of Javelosa, Tolentino and Hope Christian’s John Apacible, Ateneo which lost Nico Salva, Greg Slaughter, Justin Chua in the past, now has a solid frontcourt for the years to come.
