Bravo-Brown, Duval rejoin Bulls as classes start
Monday marked the start of the fall semester at USF, allowing the Bulls' football roster to expand from its initial limit of 105 players, and among the additions are junior receiver Stephen Bravo-Brown and sophomore walk-on receiver Jordan Duval.
Bravo-Brown, a former walk-on who was placed on scholarship last fall, did not participate in the first three weeks of practice with the Bulls, but remains on scholarship, coach Skip Holtz said. He has been limited by a knee injury and has a redshirt year available, so he might sit out the 2012 season.
Duval was suspended from the team last month after he was arrested on campus on a felony grand theft charge, accused of stealing an iPhone from a student at USF's rec center basketball courts. Though the arrest report indicated he had admitted his involvement in the theft to police, court records now show that prosecutors declined to press charges and the case was closed last week. Holtz was not allowing Duval to return to the team unless he was found not guilty or charges were dropped. Duval is likely to stay in the scout-team role he played last season.
Holtz added a third player to the roster Monday in walk-on Kyle Peck, a running back who joined the team this spring but must sit out this season as a transfer from Div. II North Greenville State in South Carolina. Other players may join the Bulls after a meeting for prospective walk-ons Wednesday, with former Oklahoma walk-on kicker Michael Hill among those players.
