Bonner’s collegiate career came to a bit of a disappointing conclusion as he ended his career on the bench due to an injury. In the 2021 season, Bonner set multiple Utah State passing records in a season where he threw for 3,628 yards and 36 touchdowns while leading the Aggies to their first-ever Mountain West championship in football. Bonner threw for just 753 yards in four games played in the 2022 season before suffering a season-ending foot injury against UNLV.
In his entire six-season career spanning time at Arkansas State and Utah State, Bonner threw for 7,547 yards, 72 touchdowns and 29 interceptions with a 59.2 completion percentage and 7.5 yards per attempt rate.
Bonner will enter a quarterback room that’s already had a bit of controversy with two players — Jake Maier and Bo Levi Mitchell — splitting pass attempts last year. Mitchell was the full-time starter since 2013 but Maier was signed to a two-year contract extension last September and led the Stampeders in pass attempts last year which could mean he’s the plan for the future at quarterback for the team.
