Rosario to Visit Florida Friday; Big East Changes Leave Recruits in Limbo
JERSEY CITY — Armed with a conditional release from Rutgers, sophomore shooting guard Mike Rosario will visit Florida beginning Friday.
Jorge Fontan, who serves as a mentor to Rosario and is the father of USC point guard Jio Fontan, said Wednesday night he “just got off the phone with [Florida coach] Billy Donovan [and] it’s a go.”
Speaking at a beefsteak event at St. Anthony High School, Rosario’s alma mater, legendary coach Bob Hurley said he thought Florida could be a good destination for the former McDonald’s All-American.
