The 5-foot-10 guard out of San Diego, California played for two years in Adamson.

Back in UAAP Season 79, Paranada played in 11 games for Adamson, averaging 2.8 points per game.

His breakout moment came back in October 5, 2016. Then, he finished with 14 points and four steals to lead Adamson’s 79–52 rout of University of Santo Tomas. His outing earned him praise from Pumaren, who said that he was like Jvee Casio.

However, with the entry of Jerie Pingoy in Season 80, Paranda saw his minutes diminish. He ended up returning back home.

Also eligible to play for Perpetual next season are Fil-Am Jethro Moll, Lance Jomalesa, and Steven Carl Flores.

Perpetual finished with a 5-13 record in Season 95 after making it to the Final Four a year before.
