|Hi Cat Lover,
He needs to be tamed in a dog crate. Its what all the feral cat tamers do, and the most effective and fastest way to tame a kitten.
He doesn't sound feral, only semi-feral at best. Releasing a kitten already on its way to taming can be very dangerous for the kitten-- they have a hard enough time surviving as ferals, but if they're already trusting of humans and not as wary, they will have an even harder time.

Also, join a free Yahoo Group called "feralcats." They have TONS and tons of info on how to tame. You can ask questions about feral kittens, trapping, anything feral related. They have been an amazing resource over the years.

Last of all, if you are willing to foster him and tame him, you can contact www.kittenrescue.org and www.http://catsatthestudios.com/ They will help you find low cost spay/neuter, vaccines, etc. and you can show them at local adoption events through their "Community Foster" programs!
Hope this helps,
