Another Sooners WR transferring, this one to A&M?


In January of this year, four-star wide receiver Justin McCay decided to transfer from Oklahoma to Big 12 rival Kansas.

A handful of months later, another touted player at the same position has decided to leave the Sooners for another (soon-to-be-former) Big 12 rival as well.

On his Twitter account Sunday night, receiver Kameel Jackson announced that not only is he leaving the OU football program, but that he will also be moving on to SEC-bound Texas A&M to continue his collegiate football career.

As of this posting, OU has yet to confirm Jackson’s departure.  Barring a successful appeal for a hardship waiver, Jackson will be forced to sit out the 2012 season in order to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.

Beginning in 2013, Jackson would have three years to use his remaining three years of eligibility.

As a true freshman in 2011, Jackson started two of the 11 games in which he played and accounted for 12 receptions for 165 yards.  A four-star member of OU’s 2011 recruiting class, Jackson was the No. 34 WR in the country coming out of high school in Arlington, Tex.

Jackson would also become the second highly-touted member of OU’s 2011 recruiting class to transfer to College Station; in December of last year, former five-star running back Brandon Williams decided to transfer to the Aggies and will also have to sit out the 2012 season.

UPDATED 8:54 a.m. ET: As Lee Corso is wont to say, not so fast my friend.  While Jackson is indeed set on transferring from Oklahoma, it’s far from a certainty that he will land at A&M, SoonerScoop.com writes.

But last night a source tells us Jackson hasn’t asked for permission from Texas A&M to transfer to College Station.

That source tells us A&M, and even head coach Kevin Sumlin, was unaware Jackson was interested in transferring to A&M as of last night.

That same source also said A&M would not be interested in bringing in Jackson as a transfer because of their current situation at the wide receiver position.

Malzahn not ready to name Sean White Auburn’s starter vs. Kentucky just yet

Auburn got back in the win column after two straight losses. While winning a game must have felt nice, head coach Gus Malzahn  is not prepared to say whether or not Sean White will be the team’s starting quarterback moving forward.

“I thought he competed; he did some good things,” Malzahn said after the game Saturday, per Al.com. “We’ll take this thing week-to-week like we’ve been doing it. We’re starting to kind of get good answers to the questions that we needed.”

White replaced Jeremy Johnson at quarterback last week against Mississippi State. Johnson, a preseason Heisman favorite for some, struggled out of the gate of the season with six interceptions thrown and a lost fumble. That forced Malzahn to make a change at quarterback after a woeful performance against FCS Jacksonville State and a loss to LSU. White lost his first game as a starter against Mississippi State but the offense has been marginally better. White has yet to throw a touchdown pass in his first two starts.

Against San Jose State, White completed six of 10 pass attempts for 1087 yards. Auburn’s running game is what helped push the Tigers by the Spartans, with Peyton Barber scoring all five touchdowns in the 35-21 victory. Auburn’s next game is in two weeks against Kentucky, on Thursday, October 15 in Lexington.

Big changes in AP poll, but Ohio State still comfortable on top

The Ohio State Buckeyes remain atop the AP Top 25 this week, but the Big 12’s top contenders have bumped Michigan State down two spots. No. 2 TCU picked up five first-place votes and managed to stay ahead of No. 3 Baylor despite the Bears getting 10 first-place votes.

No. 5 Utah picked up seven first-place votes and No. 9 Texas A&M received the last first-place vote available. The big mover in this week’s AP poll was No. 11 Florida, with the Gators jumping 14 spots in the poll after dismantling Ole Miss Saturday night. The Rebels dropped from No. 3 down to No. 14. No. 15 Notre Dame fell nine spots after losing at No. 6 Clemson. No. 19 Georgia also tumbled this week, down 11 spots after being blown out at home by Alabama. It was also a rough week for No. 20 UCLA, falling 13 spots after losing to Arizona State at home.

New teams in the AP poll this week include No. 22 Iowa, No. 24 Toledo and No. 25 Boise State. Iowa and Boise State also made appearances in the coaches poll earlier today, but Toledo did not. Memphis appears in the coach spill but is the third team in its own conference in the others receiving votes category, behind Houston and Temple. Memphis tied with division foe Navy in that category as well.
