Kevin Zabo returning to New England

Former St. Mark's point guard Kevin Zabo is returning to the New England prep school ranks after a year at Maryland powerhouse Montrose Christian, ESPN's Adam Finkelstein is reporting today.

Zabo, a Gatineau, Quebec native and ESPNU Super 60 guard for the Class of 2014, had an impressive freshman season running the point guard for NESPAC Class AA power St. Mark's. He transferred to Montrose following the end of the season, but is heading back up this way and enrolling at Class AAA runner-up and defending National Prep Champion Brewster Academy (N.H.).

Zabo's father, Ndavo Zeph Zabo, stressed to Finkelstein that the move has nothing to do with basketball, in an entry today on Recruiting Nation:

“This was a family decision and basketball was not a concern,” he said. “As parents, we are attached to structured and integrated boarding schools, such as our previous experience at St. Mark’s, that we personally prefer to a school house system.”

Zabo had a highly successful sophomore season at Montrose, holding down the team’s starting point guard position and being instrumental in their run to the semifinals of the ESPNHS NHSI.

“Kevin was in very good hands with legendary Coach Vetter,” Zeph Zabo said. “He was doing pretty well academically, appreciating his teammates, and learning a lot from the coaching staff. He is grateful.”
