College career[edit]

He won four NCRAA MVP plums along with the legacy as arguably the finest player in the history of the NCRAA.[1]

Professional career[edit]

In 2004, after a celebrated collegiate career with St. Francis, De Ocampo decided to turn pro and enter the PBA draft. He was selected by the FedEx Express as the fourth overall pick, having selected ahead of higher profile players such as classy UE point guard Paul Artadi, multi-titled PBL veteran Gary David and former King Eagle Wesley Gonzales.

During his rookie year, he played alongside his brother Yancy. Thus, he played in a total of 59 games and averaged decent rookie numbers of 7.46 points and 4.58 rebounds while playing a little over 21 minutes of action per game.

After a so-so performance in his first year, he made an impact in the 2005-06 season by improving his rookie numbers 7.5 points per game to 13.3 in his sophomore year in 37 of 51 games played. He also registered 6.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists in that year.

In 2008, Ranidel was again included in the RP Training Pool, his second stint, assembled by the PBA under Coach Yeng Guiao.

In the middle of the 2008-09 PBA Philippine Cup, he was traded to the Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters for veteran Don Allado.[2] His all-around play helped them beat the Alaska Aces 4-3.

He was included in the Gilas Pilipinas roster who defeated South Korea in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship and earned a ticket to compete in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.[3]
