Oklahoma sophomore wide receiver Kameel Jackson confirmed to SoonerScoop Sunday evening that he would be transferring to Texas A&M.
UPDATE: Things just got considerably weirder.
I'm 100% certain A&M will not take Jackson. I have no doubt after talking to a source from the other side - for those asking for more.— SoonerScoop.com (@SoonerScoop) May 7, 2012
It's somewhat shocking in that Jackson played last year as a true freshman and was expected to see significant time this coming season as a slot wide receiver. He was also a very early commit in his recruiting class and had never given the impression he was anything but all about OU. However there have been whispers of Jackson suffering from some home sickness as well as some possible academic issues which may have been the reason he did not participate in Oklahoma's spring game last month.
With the news of Jackson's intention to transfer to Texas A&M, it marks the second OU player in less than a year to leave Norman for College Station. Former five star running back Brandon Williams left Oklahoma following this past season and will sit out this coming season due to NCAA transfer rules.
It's always disappointing anytime a player chooses to leave the program, but the Sooners are bringing in the number one wide receiver class so if there was any position on offense they could afford to take the hit it was at wide out.
Wish Kameel the best of luck as he clearly feels this was the best decision for his future.
