Following a year in prep school, Stephen Decatur graduate Kevon Voyles is returning to the Eastern Shore to continue his basketball career.

The former Bayside South Player of the Year announced his commitment to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore — a program Voyles decommitted from last year after the school did not renew the contract of four-year coach Bobby Collins.

After graduating in 2018, Voyles spent the next year at the TLAP Sports Academy in Florida, enhancing his game and preparing for the college level.

The 6-foot-3 guard, who averaged 25 points and eight rebounds as a senior and helped Decatur to three straight regional championships, had offers from other Division I schools, but opted to come to a place he felt most comfortable.

“This is the beginning of something special,” Voyles said via Twitter. “I (want to) thank God for the opportunity and (UMES) Coach (Jason) Crafton for allowing me to continue my dream, and I (want to) say it’s a special day. Go Hawks
