NORMAN — Oklahoma wide receiver Kameel Jackson announced Sunday evening on Twitter that he intends to transfer to 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,” he tweeted.

But, according to a report, the interest from Texas A&M isn’t mutual. The Rivals network site SoonerScoop.com reported Texas A&M and coach Kevin Sumlin were unaware of Jackson’s intent to transfer.

A source told the website that A&M would not be interested in bringing Jackson in because of its “current situation at the wide receiver position.”

Also, a source told the website Jackson has not filed the proper paperwork to facilitate a transfer from OU to Texas A&M.

Jackson started two games and played in 11 as a true freshman, finishing with 12 receptions for 165 yards. But it might have been tough for Jackson to get much playing time as a sophomore.

The Sooners return Kenny Stills, Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks, and added highly touted freshman Trey Metoyer, who starred in the spring game. Jackson, on the other hand, didn’t play in the spring game.

Four more new receivers — Durron Neal, Sterling Shepard, Derrick Woods and Courtney Gardner — will join the Sooners in August.
