Former Bradley Central wide receiver James Stovall passed on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga as a senior in high school. After a year at the Naval Academy Preparatory School, Stovall signed with the Mocs today.

“It was a good experience for me,” Stovall said of Navy Prep, “but I just felt like I needed to come home.”

Stovall committed to UTC as a senior before receiving an offer from Navy. He changed his mind when the Midshipmen came along and signed with Navy in February 2012.

Mocs coach Russ Huesman said he was happy to sign Stovall this time. Stovall will still have four years of eligibility remaining.

“When James popped on our radar, we were pretty excited about it,” Huesman said. “Obviously we knew a lot about it because we’d recruited him previously.”
