Corner back John Bonney will remain in the State of Texas to finish his college football eligibility. Bonney announced on Tuesday that he finish his college football career playing for the Texas Tech Red Raiders, as a graduate transfer.

He will also play against his former school during the 2018 season. The two teams will play each other on November 10th.

Bonney will also remain in the Big 12 Conference. He committed to the school after visiting Lubbock, Texas on Tuesday afternoon.

“We’re excited to add a veteran defensive back with such experience, like John,” Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “We will begin to get him acclimated with our team this afternoon, and I believe he’ll be a great addition to our defensive backs room.”

While Kingsbury said that he’ll be a great addition to the defense, it’s not clear now how he’ll fit into the Red Raiders defensive plans.

He played in just nine games last season. He had 19 tackles, 0.5 tackles for a loss, 0.5 sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries, and three pass deflections.

He appeared in 10 games as a sophomore. He had 39 tackles, 0.5 tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, and nine pass deflections.

Bonney also played in 10 games as a freshman. He had 28 tackles, 2.0 tackles for a loss, 1.0 sack, one forced fumble, and one pass deflection.
