"I plan to make a visit to Illinois when they play Ohio State," Buckner acknowledged. "But I'm looking at Wisconsin, Michigan State…I want take a look at Tennessee and probably Michigan. I'm not sure if I will visit all those schools but I'm definitely going to visit Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Illinois. I was looking at Tennessee because they came after me pretty hard, but I'm just looking. I'm pretty solid on Illinois I don't see anything changing my mind. I just want to see what else is out there."
Buckner is definitely capable of applying plenty of pass rush pressure.
"We just had our first game last Friday," Buckner said. "I did pretty good. I had five sacks, which isn't too bad for my first game."
What's next for Buckner? "We play Julian from Chicago," he said. "We should be ok, but our game after that against St. Rita that's going to be a big challenge for us, but we're up for it."
Buckner stands 6'3" and weighs 325 pounds. He's a member of the Class of 2009.
