Though his career at Texas A&M displayed flashes of potential, Camron Buckley has transferred out of Texas and is headed for the Hoosiers football program in Indiana.
Buckley caught the Aggies’ attention in 2017 with 17 catches, 242 yards, and three touchdowns. In 2018, Jimbo Fisher’s first year as head coach of A&M, Buckley recorded 34 catches, 474 yards, and one touchdown. However, his involvement then waned in the latter end of the season before disappearing completely. After suffering a knee injury in camp last year, Buckley missed the 2020 season.
According to IndyStar, Buckley joins a growing list of top-name talent headed to Indiana via the transfer portal. The former Aggies receiver should help fill the void left by Whop Philyor, who will soon play for the Minnesota Vikings.
Buckley joins former Aggies safety Derrick Tucker in transferring out of College Station. Tucker played only four games during his junior season in 2019 and announced via Twitter in September 2020 that he would forgo his final season at A&M because of his support for Black Lives Matter. Per NCAA ruling last year, opt-outs will receive an additional year of eligibility.
