UPDATE: Bob Hurley wants Fontan to stay at Fordham.DETROIT – Fordham point guard Jio Fontan is seeking his release from the school, but has been denied by the program, according to a source with knowledge. Half a dozen schools from the SEC, ACC and Big East — including both New Jersey programs — would be interested in landing the 6-foot-1 Fontan. Fontan, who starred for Bob Hurley at St. Anthony in Jersey City, averaged 15.3 points and 4.7 assists for a Fordham team that finished 3-25, 1-15 in the A-10. Fordham has already granted releases to freshman Trey Blue and sophomore Mike Moore, but not to Fontan. Fontan’s former St. Anthony teammate, Mike Rosario, is the starting shooting guard at Rutgers. If Fontan were to end up there, the duo would be reunited, but a number of schools are in play. As first reported here, Fontan and Rosario will team up this summer for Puerto Rico in the FIBA U19 World Championship for Men in Auckland, New Zealand.
