Texas A&M Football WR Camron Buckley has entered the transfer portal
The story of Camron Buckley‘s time in College Station won’t warm your heart. There’s nothing jarringly negative, but his career was derailed by injuries, leading him to lose out on playing time and eventually be shuffled down the depth chart.
Buckley came to Texas A&M as a 3-star wide receiver in the 2017 class. He wasn’t really on the national spotlight, but he had the size and athleticism to make a difference in the SEC at 6-2. And at first, this would hold true.
Buckley made an instant impact in his freshman season, accumulating 282 yards on just 17 receptions with a trio of touchdowns. He would steadily improve in his second season. It looked like he was going to be the next great Aggie receiver.
He would eventually be passed up on the depth chart by Ainias Smith, who now stands as the Aggies’ best returning receiver. This would be followed by an unfortunate injury, as Buckley would tear his ACL, taking him out of the 2020 season.
This won’t be a huge loss for the Aggies, but fans will wish the best for a player who could have been. With his size and athleticism, he’ll be sure to find a landing spot at another strong college football program.
