Former Arlington Sam Houston standout Kameel Jackson, a sophomore wide receiver, has tweeted that he has transfered from Oklahoma to Lousiana-Monroe.
The tweet from @kameeljackson18: "Officially a student-athlete at the University of Louisana-Monroe. Where I'll play along side my older brother. Warhawk nation!#teamULM"
The Tulsa World retweeted Jackson's message.
On Saturday. Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said at the opening news conference before the first preseason practices that Jackson, who had been suspended during the off-season, would not be reinstated to the team. Stoops had said earlier in relation to Jackson that he was waiting for the end of the summer session of classes.
Jackson had tweeted in May that his problems had to do with academics: “My suspensions came from my failure to meet my class attendance policy. Nothing more; nothing less.”
A year ago, Jackson's pass-catching ability drew notice from Stoops, who touted the then freshman during an episode of ESPN's "All-Access" show that followed Oklahoma preseason practices.
Jackson caught 12 passes for 165 yards last season as a true freshman and is obviously a gifted receiver.
