STRENGTHS: Getting to the basket, good passer. Off drive. Finds open man and can also dish and find the big bodies around the basket. His ballhandling is also considered a strength.
RECRUITING: Fontan has already given a verbal commitment to Fordham
CONCLUSION: Jiovanny is a strong guard who can get to basket and finish. He is also an excellent passer on drive for open three or dump down to big man for easy dunk. Fontan is very strong with the ball and good in traffic.
As his perimeter game improves, he is going to be a terrific addition for the Fordham basketball program.
