NORMAN — As it turns out, former Oklahoma receiver Kameel Jackson won’t return to Norman with Louisiana-Monroe for the 2013 season opener.

A ULM spokesman told The Oklahoman that Jackson left the school to get his grades up at a junior college, and plans to rejoin the team in December after he graduates.

Louisiana-Monroe and Oklahoma play in both teams’ 2013 season opener August 31 on Owen Field.

As a true freshman at OU in 2011, Jackson had 12 catches for 165 yards. He started two games, recording career highs with a 3-catch, 45-yard performance against Iowa in the Insight Bowl.

Jackson was suspended last May along with teammates Trey Franks, Quentin Hayes and Jaz Reynolds for unspecified team violations. Before that news became public, though, Jackson tweeted that he intended to transfer to Texas A&M.

After his suspenson was announced, Jackson tweeted his intent to stay at Oklahoma.

Just before Oklahoma opened fall camp, though, OU coach Bob Stoops said Jackson wouldn’t return to the team.

Jackson transferred to Louisiana-Monroe, didn’t play in any games — per NCAA transfer rules — but practiced with the team the entire season.
