OU football: Kameel Jackson has change of heart, tweets that he's 'decided to stay at OU'

NORMAN — Kameel Jackson says he’s staying at Oklahoma after all.

The sophomore-to-be wide receiver tweeted early last week he planned to transfer to Texas A&M. A few days later, OU coach Bob Stoops announced in a release that Jackson was one of four Sooners suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.

Early Thursday morning, though, Jackson tweeted, announcing he’s “decided to stay at OU.”

He followed that up with more tweets to “silence all rumors” about his suspension.

“My suspension came from my failure to meet my class attendance policy,” he tweeted. “Nothing more; nothing less.”

Jackson started two games and played in 11 as a true freshman, finishing with 12 receptions for 165 yards. But he didn’t participate in April’s spring game.

Reports in the aftermath of Jackson’s initial tweets indicated Texas A&M knew nothing of Jackson’s plans to transfer.

Also suspended last week by Stoops were receivers Trey Franks and Jaz Reynolds and sophomore defensive back Quentin Hayes.
