2016 New Mexico Military OL Alex Fontana talks about his season and where things stand on the recruiting front

New Mexico Military OL Alex Fontana (6-3, 305) had a good sophomore season and he updated JCFootball.com recently on where things stand on the recruiting front...

"I have one offer right now -- Louisiana-Lafayette," Fontana told JCFootball.com. "I've been getting interest from UCF, Troy, New Mexico, New Mexico State, UAB and a few FCS programs.

"Honestly, I feel like my recruiting is going to pick up this month."

At this point, Fontana doesn't have any visits set up, but that should change in the coming weeks.

As a sophomore this season, Fontana held down the pivot for the Broncos, but he's versatile enough to play guard as well.

"I feel, as an offensive lineman, that I can move really well," Fontana said. "I play with a high motor and I feel like I am phyiscally and mentally tough."

Fontana enjoyed a very good prep career at The Kent School in Connecticut, but he was unable to get qualified, so he headed to ASA.

"I played there in 2014 and then I left for some personal reasons," Fontana noted. "I was told by a few people that New Mexico Military was a good school and that coach (Joe) Fortchner is a great guy so I decided to leave and go. 

"The conference out here is pretty competitive too, so I felt like it would definitely get me ready to play at the next level."

Fontana is on pace to finish up his academic work in May and he will have three years to play two starting this fall.

JCFootball.com will have more on Fontana in the coming weeks as he nears his decision.
