Crash Course: Jio Fontan

| No Comments

The Fordham transfer has been at USC for a year now, but Jio Fontan will get his first taste of Trojan action Saturday at #3 Kansas.

Name: Jio Fontan

Position: PG/SG

Size: 6'0" and 175 lbs.

Hometown: Paterson, NJ (St. Anthony's High School)

Scouting Report: Fontan is a natural point guard, but he'll play off the ball when Maurice Jones is on the court.  While he is probably USC's best distance shooter, Fontan's strength is his ability to create on the drive for himself and others.

KO Quote: "I'm sure he'll try to do too much, but that guy is the least of my worries," Kevin O'Neill said about his expectations for Fontan's debut.

More Jio: His incredible high school journey is detailed in the documentary The Street Stops Here.
