Murrell ends UP career as he and Manzo join PBA Draft

Two products of University of the Philippines have joined the already-stacked 2021 PBA Rookie Draft.

Hardy floor general Jun Manzo and athletic forward David Murrell submitted their draft applications to the PBA Office in Libis, Pasig on Thursday.

Manzo last played for the Fighting Maroons back in Season 82, averaging 8.4 points, 4.0 assists, and 3.5 rebounds per contest.

Manzo, a 5-foot-10 guard, transferred from University of the Visayas to UP back in 2016. He was immediately installed as the lead floor general of UP.
