Tabor, a 6-foot-5 guard from New York, is in his first season with the Hearts. He chose the Red Storm over several other Division I schools, including UConn, where he also made an official visit.
Tabor is following former Sacred Heart standout Mustapha Heron, a two-time Register State Player of the Year, who transferred to St. John’s for his junior season after spending his first two seasons at Auburn.
“When I went there, everything just felt right. I tried on the uniform. I was in the gym. I was thinking I can become better here, I can become the King of New York,” Tabor told the Post.
Sacred Heart is currently 5-1 and ranked No. 1 in the latest GameTimeCT Top 10 poll.
