Zabo On UConn Radar?

Canada has become the new hotbed for recruiting top basketball players. At the moment, the 2013 Canadian class features a number of top talent; however, it is the 2014 class that could make a big impact. Led by Andrew Wiggins and Kevin Zabo, Canadian basketball is rising to the top of the world.

Zabo, a 2014 6-foot-2 point guard from Montrose Christian in Maryland, is getting used to life in America, as well as his new school. During his freshman year, he played at St. Mark's in Massachusetts, alongside Alex Murphy (Duke), Kaleb Tarczewski (Arizona) and Nik Stauskas (Michigan). Now he teams up with Justin Anderson (Virginia) and former Missouri commit Ishmail Wainright at the Rockville, Maryland school.

As a young floor general who can lead his team and make good decisions, he still needs to work on a number of aspects in his game. His jump shot needs work as he has still not developed a consistent one. His court vision, high basketball IQ and passing abilities establish him as an elite point guard, who could become a notable name in the future once he develops a consistent scoring package.

Currently, Zabo has interest from, "North Carolina, UConn, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina State, Georgetown, Virginia, Washington State and more." While none of those programs have offered yet, he has heard from UConn a number of times this summer.

"Although I haven't heard from UConn since the summer, I think it's a great program and would definitely consider going there," he said.

Zabo's recent transfer puts the Huskies at a disadvantage being further away from Storrs; however, he remains a priority for the Connecticut program who has developed many talented point guards over the years.
