It’s safe to say St. John’s is in the best place they have been in quite some time. The Red Storm are now 14-1 and are ranked 24th in the nation in the most recent Associated Press Poll. There are also seeing results from a recruiting standpoint as well. Last Wednesday, class of 2020 guard Nate Tabor committed to St. John’s. The opportunity to stay home and play in front of his friends and family was too good for him to pass up on.
“It took a lot of thought for me to decide on St. John’s,” said Tabor. “I talked to my friends and my family and we just felt like it was the right time to make the decision happen. I picked St. John’s because who wouldn’t want to play in front of a crowd that they grew up in. I’ll be able to give back to the city that has always shown me love and been there for me.”
Committing to a program with this much success recently makes Tabor that much happier about his decision.
“What they have going on is great right now and I hope it continues when I get there,” he said. “I’m really proud to be committed to a school where they are having so much success. Seeing that success it just makes me want to join them even more. I love their coaching staff and how much they can help me in the future.”
He sees himself giving back to those who have helped in the community by committing to St. John’s.
“It’s an advantage because growing up I’ve seen people leave and forget about where they come from,” Tabor said. “New York City has done so much for me and I’m just honored to be a part of this program. Now with my commitment done, I need to stay on ten toes and just keep going.”
