National University bolstered its lineup by tapping Gilas Pilipinas prospect Troy Rike.

According to Norman Lee Benjamin Riego of ABS-CBN Sports, Rike, a graduate of Wake Forest University in the US, has enrolled in NU's masters program, which means he's eligible to play for one season.

Because he comes from a non-UAAP school and is taking up graduate studies, Rike doesn't have to go through a residency period at NU and can play immediately for the Bulldogs.

The 22-year-old made headlines recently for protecting Australia player Chris Goulding from an unruly mob in the Gilas Pilipinas 2019 FIBA World Cup qualifying game at Philippine Arena in Bulacan on Monday.
