He's a likely first round pick in the MLB draft. His dad said it would take $1 million to keep him out of college
First round might be stretching it. Believe it or not, height matters to baseball people too. Being 5-foot-8 as a middle infielder will hurt him. They look for the A-Rod 6'2" SS prototypes, just like football scouts look for the 6'5" gunslinger QB.
I do think if he produces and has good summers, he'll be in a big money round, but more than likely, he'll be a college baseball player and if he has a Mahtook kind of career, he'll play his way to the million-dollar bonus Nick wants.
Just my opinion there. If the kid hits .600 with 15 jacks while picking everything hit to him at SS, then tears up Perfect Game this summer, all bets are off.
But for the people talking about him as a FB player, please understand, football is something he does during baseball's off-season. He's pretty much the opposite of Quinn in that regard. He's a baseball player.
That said, if somebody took baseball away from him, he'd have a future as a Danny Woodhead-type RB, in my opinion. Small, shifty, great ball skills. As a wildcat QB, he'd be spectacular because of what he can do throwing it. He's probably the best thrower on the run I've ever seen at the HS level, seriously.
I think Cam Cameron would love him as an RB in the passing game. But my guess is Fontenot will only be in the same stadium as Cameron if he sits in the northwest corner with his baseball teammates or if Cam sits in an Alex Box luxury suite.
