SDST Azteks after Kevin Zabo
Brewster Academy 2014 6’3” PG Kevin Zabo has been offered by the San Diego State Azteks. Zabo a native of Gatineau, QC experienced a roller coaster summer. Due to nagging injuries he was forced to miss the FIBA U19 World Championships in Prague. “Just a bunch of injuries, the groin, my left ankle and still have my left thumb recovering from surgery I had earlier” Zabo told HHC. Despite battling injuries earlier in the summer, Zabo was healthy enough and in form to merit a spot with Team Canada @ the Nike Global Challenge in D.C. for the third straight year. “One of the best tournaments in the nation, no doubt.. Great experience representing Canada finishing in the top 4.” Zabo added.
The Canadian who attends Brewster Academy averaged 12.5 points and 5 assists in D.C. He also elaborated why he endorses the prep program in New Hampshire “a great school on and off the court was most important for me. Coach [Jason] Smith is a great, with a couple of leaguers from there too” Brewster alumni’s include Thomas Robinson, Mitch McGarry and fellow Canadian Big 12 leader in rebounds Melvin Ejim. Tristan Thompson also had a cup of coffee with Brewster back in 2007.
As the 2014 point guard approaches his final lap on the American prep school circuit, he hinted despite interest from UCONN, WV, Minnesota, New Mexico and George Washington that San Diego State has recruited him with the most sense of urgency. In attendance at the 2013 Caribana Classic, Canada’s premier exposure camp held in the Greater Toronto Area was Azteks assistant Justin Hutson. Huston considered among the top assistant coaches in America according to poll taken by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. Hutson is the top-rated west coast assistant to be exact amongst his peers.
Zabo verified he will visit the Azteks campus in the near future and has targeted the early signing period as a time table for his decision. “planning on visiting soon but no date set, the way they recruited me, it meant a lot, really felt they wanted me”. Zabo a native of Quebec hails from the same city as a Canadian currently at Boston College “Olivier Hanlan, that’s my man @ Boston College, he is doing his thing and a great example”.
