It looks like the Fonts legacy will continue at Providence College with Luke Fonts committing to the Providence Friars as a Preferred Walk On (PWO). Luke’s older brother Drew Fonts is a Senior guard with the Friars and has set the foundation for Luke to slide right into his slot on the roster once he graduates.
Luke plays at the same Portsmouth Abbey School in Portsmouth, Rhode Island where his brother Drew finished his career in the 1,000 point club. Luke is a 6’1” guard and had the following quote about his game in the NERR.
“Physically strong and loaded with intangibles, Fonts appears to be a favorite among his teammates, as much for his willingness to create them open shots as well as for his demeanor and approach.”– New England Recruiting Report
Luke also runs with the Middlesex Magic AAU team and apparently is the astounding 17th (!) member of the 2021 class to commit to play college basketball. It looks like they have some serious recruiting ties for their boys and girls teams to take their skills to the next level.
For Luke’s Junior Season at Portsmouth Abbey, they young man averaged 14.9 ppg, 6.3 apg, & 3.2 rpg. And it looks like we have a lefty on our hands. The Friars always seem to have a southpaw on the roster with Jimmy Nichols Jr. currently filling that role. Before Nichols, there was Kyron Cartwright, LeDontae Henton, Tyler Harris, among others, but this is the first time in a long while that I can remember one of the walk-ons being left handed.
