"I was at my official visit when Mack Brown resigned, and he told us to go look around. [He said] he'll even talk to other coaches for you and everything because he really just wanted the best for us as players."
The Longhorns hired former Louisville coach Charlie Strong last month to replace Brown, who announced his resignation in December after 16 seasons. Bonney told KTRK that he remains committed to Texas despite making visits to Auburn and Baylor. Strong's current 21-member class ranks 14th in the country, according to Rivals.com Brown is set to remain on payroll at Texas as a special adviser through 2020.
