Buckley, one of the five Cedar Hill prospects in the Scout 300, was a Midlands Recruit of the Week in July and has put on dominant showings in camps across the state - he won his first offer from TCU after attending a camp there. He received offers from Texas and Texas Tech after turning in a dominant performance at Texas' Under The Lights camp.
"I did well at every aspect of the camp, I did my best, and (Texas) rewarded me with an offer."
The elite receiving prospect is attracting notice from around the country after seizing the state by storm. Texas Tech entered the fray for Buckley last Saturday.
"My coach told me to call them on Wednesday. I called (coach Eric Morris) on Wednesday, and he said I should talk to them about the school, something like that. Then he told me to call on Saturday so he could get more information on me. That's when I called him and he told me that I was offered."
His relationship with the Tech coaching staff is still new as he had not been in contact with the staff prior to the week before he was offered, nor has he attended a camp. But Buckley would prefer to play in a spread offense which can air it out, and that's playing in the Red Raiders' favor.
I love Texas Tech's offense. Seventy percent of the time they're throwing the ball. I like what they're trying to do with the program. They're trying to build it up, they're just looking for guys that want to win.The Cedar Hill standout is eager to retake the field.
"It was crazy. We worked for it, every time we went to practice we worked for a state championship. It was just crazy that we won it."
Cedar Hill's offense looks to be a buzzsaw as fellow Scout 300 wide receiver Charleston Rambo will take the spot opposite Buckley. The offensive scheme will ensure that everybody sees plenty of touches.
"It's a fast-tempo offense. It gets everybody involved. Quarterbacks get involved, the receivers get involved. It keeps the defense guessing."
Buckley holds offers from Texas Tech, TCU, Texas, and Houston. He reports interest from Texas A&M, Auburn, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, among others.
