The former NCAA Juniors MVP has committed to play for the Blazers after spending two seasons with University of the Philippines in the UAAP.

With the Maroons, the 6-foot-6 Gozum barely had time on the floor to prove his worth.  He played an average of fewer than five minutes in his rookie year in the UAAP but his minutes even dwindled in his second year.

But Gozum, who was called up to the Gilas cadet program in 2018, remains a promising talent who is expected to boost the TY Tang-mentored Blazers, who have not been to the Final Four since 2002.

The 20-year-old big man will sit out Season 96 to serve his residency.
