Cyril Gonzales will now be slashing for Mapua while Pao Javillonar will now be enforcing for Letran
Now, all three of Nazareth School of National University's graduated players will be seeing action in NCAA Season 95.
Cyril Gonzales, who was initially slated to stay in Sampaloc and move up to NU's Seniors squad, has changed his commitment to Mapua University.
The fearless slasher joins NCA 94 Jrs. Finals MVP Paolo Hernandez as rookies who may very well make an immediate impact for the Cardinals.
The 6-foot Gonzales posted per game counts of 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.6 steals in 21 minutes of play in the Bullpups' championship run in the UAAP Jrs. last year.
Meanwhile, Pao Javillonar, another key cog in NU's title, switched his commitment from College of St. Benilde to Colegio de San Juan de Letran.
The 6-foot-6 center is a defensive enforcer who will be nothing but a welcome addition to the Knights' big, bad Walls of Intramuros.
For his part, 6-foot-4 raw prospect Dom Dayrit, the third graduated player from NU, will push forward with his initial commitment to Emilio Aguinaldo College.
That means that all three ex-Bullpups will be waging war in the latest season of the first and oldest collegiate league in the country.
As always, the latest season of the first and oldest collegiate league in the country will be on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and livestream.
