CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The Chattanooga Mocs men's basketball team added its second signee of the early period today with point guard Jonathan Stark. Stark, 5'10", 160-lbs., joins the program from Munford High School outside Memphis, Tenn.
""Jonathan is a jet quick out there," Head Coach John Shulman noted. "He's very fast...very athletic at the one. He can handle it, distribute it and has a great mid-range game. He can shoot the three and he can dunk on your head.
"We are very excited to add Jonathan to our backcourt next season."
Stark played at Brighton in 2011-12 before moving onto Munford for this season. He averaged 21 points and more than six assists per contest as a junior after 10.7 points and 3.5 assists per game as a sophomore. Among his list of offers per various recruiting sites included George Mason, TCU, Lipscomb and Long Island.
Stark joins Christian Kennedy, a 6'10", 200-lb., post from Northside High School in Warner Robins, Ga., on the Mocs early signee list.
