Bob Stoops refused to go into detail about what suspended receivers Trey Franks, Kameel Jackson and Jaz Reynolds and defensive back Quentin Hayes must do to return to his good graces.

Franks, Hayes and Reynolds have lost their scholarships.

Jackson, though, remains on scholarship and is taking summer classes.

“I'm not detailing who is different than what,” Stoops said before speaking at the Sooner Caravan at Gleneagles Country Club.

“(Jackson) has certain things he has to do to be on a scholarship come fall. We'll see what he's able to do through the summer.”

Jackson tweeted last month that he planned to transfer to Texas A&M before news of his suspension broke shortly thereafter. He then tweeted that he would stay at OU, and added, “My suspension came from my failure to meet my class attendance policy. Nothing more; nothing less.”


Stoops was asked if running back Roy Finch would play any slot, or if any defensive backs might move to receiver to help provide more depth.

“We don't need them to,” Stoops said. “We're going to have eight or nine on scholarship.”

If the suspensions hold up through the Sept. 1 season opener at UTEP, junior Kenny Stills will be the only Sooner wideout or tight end with a career NCAA Division I reception.

Stoops said he's confident the receivers he does have will be ready by the season opener.

“It's a long time until we play,” he said. “We'll have them ready.”
