2017 Cedar Hill (Tx.) WR Camron Buckley is planning an aggressive spring schedule where he will visit some of his top suitors

2017 Cedar Hill (Tx.) WR Camron Buckley is set to start visiting some of his top schools and he recently told Dawgman.com that Washington will be one of his trips this spring...

Buckley currently sports 13 offers -- Auburn, Mississippi, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Houston, Miami, SMU, Washington, Colorado, Iowa State and UTSA -- and he said he'll be visiting several of those schools in the coming weeks including Washington.

"Coach (Bush) Hamdan and I have a good relationship and he's asked me to get up there to visit so I can see the facilities and the program for myself," Buckley told Dawgman.com recently. "I really like him and I'm very interested in Washington, so I'm going to make it up there at some point. I'm not really sure about the date yet, but I'm going to try and go up there at some point this spring and if that doesn't work out, then I'll probably head up there in he summer.

"I'm trying to get out and see a few of those schools, but so far, I haven't set any official visit dates or anything quite yet."

The Huskies have told Buckley they see him fitting into their system as an outside receiver, where he can use his speed and quickness to be a threat down the field and also across the middle.

"I feel like I do it all pretty well," Buckley said. "Don't get me wrong, I know I have stuff to work on, honestly, I'm working on every part of my game right now, but I really feel like I can be a threat from almost anywhere on the field.

"I feel like I'm at my best being explosive, going and getting the ball and making plays down the field.

"The big things I'm working on this offseason is getting stronger and getting even faster than I already am. I lift every day, doing explosive movements and stuff like that, and I also am running track and that's helping get my lower body and legs going too."

Buckley has a PR of 22.00 in the 200 meters and he runs that event and the 4x200 for his high school team.

"One thing about me is I love to compete," Buckley noted. "I just like to grind and work on my game, but most of all I love to get out and compete against the best players and athletes I can every day."

Buckley hopes to take all of his official visits before he makes a decision, but even though a decision is a ways away, he has started to think about what he'll be looking for from the school that he chooses in the end.

"A big thing for me is does the school and the area feel like home to me," Buckley said. "Do I have a good level of comfort there and is the environment one that I can see myself in for four or five years.

"I also need to have a good relationship with the coaches and feel like they can make me a better player and that they care about me as a person, not just as an athlete.

"I also need to see how I bond with the players. Do they have that family feel? Do they hang out and get along well? That's big.

"The last thing is a winning program. I want to win a championship and be part of a great program. That's something I will be looking for as well."

As a junior last season, Buckley finished with 31 receptions for 432 yards and he led his team with seven touchdown receptions as well.
