The senior safety (who already has a Longhorn degree) will transfer and be eligible immediately, where he’ll have a good chance to start for the Red Raider secondary. The news is a bit of surprise given Bonney’s long history with the program, but the influx of talent in the Texas DB room meant that Bonney won’t be a starter and he didn’t want to rely on injuries to play in his final season of eligibility.

Why would Tom Herman allow that?

Good on Tom Herman for letting a player who did it right in Austin have freedom of movement to a conference rival, even if at the possibility of haunting us down the road.
