Oklahoma receiver Kameel Jackson won’t be in Norman much longer. The former 4-star signee from Arlington, Texas announced last night that he’s planning a move back to his home state in order to play at Texas A&M:
Embracing my last week as a Sooner; as I’ve chose to transfer and further my education and football career at Texas A&M.

There’s just one small problem. According to SoonerScoop.com – the Rivals site covering Oklahoma — Jackson hasn’t asked OU and Bob Stoops for permission to transfer to A&M. The site also writes today:
“(A) 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.”
According to AggieYell.com — the Rivals site covering A&M — “A&M apparently isn’t interested in Jackson and he has not contacted them about transferring there.” The site also says Jackson has not filed the necessary paperwork to transfer.
Both Rivals sites mention the fact that Jackson “could be facing disciplinary issues due to (academic) issues.”
Jackson played in eight games for Oklahoma last year as a freshman. He caught 12 passes for 165 yards and no touchdowns. His best performance came in the Sooners’ win over Iowa in the Insight Bowl in which he had three receptions for 45 yards.
