Oklahoma's Kameel Jackson staying
By Dane Beavers
Oklahoma freshman receiver Kameel Jackson, who announced last week on Twitter that he was transferring to Texas A&M and then was suspended indefinitely by Sooners coach Bob Stoops, has apparently had a change of heart about his status at the university.
Jackson tweeted early Thursday morning that he has "decided to stay at OU."
He also explained the reason why he was suspended.
"My suspensions came from my failure to meet my class attendance policy," Jackson said on Twitter. "Nothing more; nothing less."
Jackson was one of three OU receivers to be suspended indefinitely last week, along with juniors Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks. If none of these three are available for OU's season opener on Sept. 1 at UTEP, Kenny Stills would be the only receiver on the OU roster with a career reception.
Jackson caught 12 passes for 165 yards last season and started in the Insight Bowl vs. Iowa.
