Texas lands versatile 4-star DB Bonney

It has been a long, winding recruiting process for four-star safety John Bonney (Houston/Lamar).

With 32 offers and an effort to visit as many of those schools as he possibly could, Bonney and his family have put in much time and effort in vetting the potential options, virtually all of them good ones.

In the end, it came down to some long-held feelings, as Bonney chose his childhood favorite and committed to Texas on Thursday night.

The 6-foot, 182-pound Bonney, the nation's 21st-ranked safety, is the 24th commitment in the Longhorns' 2014 recruiting class.
