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

Kameel Jackson, Josh Wilson AP

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.

    Good luck to Kameel. He’ll do well at A&M with Sumlin’s new offense and his playing time at OU was going to be limited.

    One problem for this kid. Soonerscoop.com is reporting that he is indeed transferring but Texas A&M is not interested in him coming there.

    Kameel, I heard Kevin Sumlin knows nothing of this….uh oh…!!!

    Good luck where ever you land. He was going to #4 on the depth chart at best this year. Honestly he would be 7th with Stills, Reynolds, Metoyer, Gardner, Neal, and Woods on the roster. And add sterling Shephard and he was going to have trouble getting on the field

    The idea that agricultural is getting so selective as to say no to Jackson’s proposed transfer to them strikes me as funny. They can’t afford to say no to any semi-talented players that want to head to Bagdad on the Brazos. I think this move to the SEC really is going to their head.

    Bagdad on the Brazos? Figures that an idiot Teasip fan would misspell “Baghdad”. Sounds like sour grapes regarding A&M moving to the SEC.

    You guys do realize that A&M can’t actually talk to this kid until he is given his release from OU, right?

    Of course they are going to say that they know nothing about it.

  7. pastortodd78 says: May 7, 2012 1:35 PM

    He apparently has his release, but has not spoken with a single A&M coach. He just talked to some buddies from high school that played there and decided he was going to A&M.

  8. saints97 says: May 7, 2012 1:40 PM

    He doesn’t have his release yet (feel free to actually read the linked articles).

  9. bbeaman78 says: May 7, 2012 2:26 PM

    Regardless of his release, the same guy that wrote the Soonerscoop.com article. Stated on the radio in OKC earlier this morning, that Jackson has been talking to A&M players and incoming recruits not the coaching staff. Apparently players and recruits at A&M have cleared his transfer, which means nothing.

    Also, the A&M coach used to be an assistant and coordinator where??? Oh yeah, OU and he wouldn’t do this without calling Stoops. So to the naysayers who are claiming that the coaches are playing stupid, there isn’t a transfer in the works and this kid really has screwed up his college career. Add Fresno State’s 2011 leading receiver to the already large incoming class of receivers at OU. So Jackson obviously knew he wouldn’t see the field. Doesn’t mean you stop attending class.

    Good luck to this kid, but he already sounds…..um not too bright.

    I’m not commenting either way on what the kid will do or what the A&M coaches are thinking. I’m just saying they can’t comment publicly about him without committing an NCAA violation.

    If the kid is, in fact, the turd you say he is, then hopefully Sumlin and A&M have the wisdom to steer clear.

    Thanks for providing me with my laugh of the day ag fan. The idea that any UT fan would envy anything about what is soon to be the third best agricultural college in the SEC, the school that put the “cult” in agriculture, just breaks me up. The only thing UT fan will miss about aggy is the unintended humor they provide us, but make no mistake, most of us can barely wait for the carnage that’s headed agricultural’s way once they’re firmly in the confederacy. The joke just keeps writing itself.

    coolhorn, you’re so witty and cool.

    I just had to say that.

    Kinda sucks that your boy Colt is about to lose his job.

    No it doesn’t.

    Damning with faint praise is better than no praise at all…thankee kindly. As for Colt, that’s one divorce that needs to happen. I’d love to see him out of the mistake on the lake.
