FORMER Letran Squire Joshua Ramirez has found a new home at Far Eastern University.
Team insiders bared the development which was later on confirmed by Tamaraws coach Olsen Racela, who welcome the ex-Gilas Pilipinas Youth member to Morayta.
"We recruited him because of his shooting," said Racela. "He spreads the floor the way Kenneth Tuffin and Rey Bienes spread the floor for us, and both will be playing their last year in Season 83. So we see Joshua taking over their roles for the team."
Coming off a stellar high school career with Letran, the 20-year-old earlier decided to stay put in Muralla in the lead-up to the Knights' NCAA Season 95 championship conquest.
He, however, had a change of heart and moved to La Salle in February, but eventually de-committed anew last month as the Green Archers saw an influx of new recruits.
This time, it seems like Morayta will be his home for good.
Ramirez was the top dog for the Squires in his final year in high school, posting 13.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists to help his side to an 8-10 win-loss record.
He was also a part of the Gilas Pilipinas Youth pool which prepared for the 2019 Fiba Under-19 World Cup in Heraklion, Greece.
Ramirez, who can make his debut for the Tamaraws as a true rookie in UAAP Season 83, joins Kevin Guibao of University of San Jose-Recoletos and Ximone Sandagon of Technological Institute of the Philippines as the new faces in the FEU camp.
His arrival boosts the chances of FEU, which will also welcome sniper RJ Abarrientos and Nigerian banger Emman Ojuola to its roster come next season.
