"Coach Bobby Petrino and Coach Summers came down yesterday and then I committed," Bonner told InsidetheVille.com. "I just think that it is too good of an opportunity to pass up."
"It basically came down to Louisville and Mississippi State," Bonner said.
"Careg is a talented playmaker with a great attitude and work ethic," said Huntsville Head Coach Kevin Weiseman.
Bonner was ranked the No. 28 prospect in the state of Alabama by SuperPrep.com and is regarded as one of the top five tight end prospects in the state.
While many expected that Bonner would be the next great Louisville tight end, he told ITV that he will likely see action elsewhere.
"They said that they like me as H-back," explained Bonner. "So I'll line up in the slot some. They say Brian Brohm can throw the ball, so I'm looking forward to it."
