OU football notebook: Kameel Jackson creating a buzz

by Michael Baldwin Published: August 9, 2011

With five veteran receivers, it will be difficult for a freshman to crack the Oklahoma rotation, but teammates are buzzing about Kameel Jackson from Arlington, Texas.

"Kameel has shown a lot of savvy," said receivers coach Jay Norvell. "We had him in camp a couple of times and absolutely loved him. He has really good hands. And he has the ability to focus. That's the hardest thing for young players, to focus and make plays. He's shown the ability to do that. ...

"Skill players like him do well in our offense. If you're not a quick thinker, you won't play well in a no-huddle offense. You have to think like the quarterback thinks. If you do that you can have a lot of success."


The Sooners on Tuesday went through the first of four two-a-day sessions. Sophomore running back Roy Finch said it brings back memories of his time at Edmond North High School before his finished high school in Florida. His career started in Maryland.
