Jackson Gets Scoop on In-Home Visit

Sooners Illustrated caught up with 2011 Scout.com three-star wide receiver commitment Kameel Jackson to see how he felt about Oklahoma Offensive coordinator Coach Kevin Wilson moving on to be the head coach at Indiana. See inside to see what Jackson had to say.

When offensive or defensive coordinators have success year in and year out after a while the opportunity to move up and become a head coach somewhere usually arrives.

For Coach Kevin Wilson the opportunity to become a head coach has come before but ended up with somebody else receiving the position. This time around when the Indiana Hoosiers came calling Coach Wilson was offered the job and he accepted.

This kind of change to a program can have an effect on the current commitment class that has not signed their letters of intent yet. In the case of Kameel Jackson it does not affect his commitment to the Sooners as he says his position coach has already come by his house to clear up the situation with him today.

"Well Coach Norvell came by the house. We talked about it. Great for Coach Wilson, would have loved to play for him. I'm pretty sure the next guy will be a really good one," Jackson explained.

Coach Wilson ran a fast paced offense with multiple sets and attacked defenses in multiple ways. According to the 6-foot-1 and 185-pound Jackson, the Sooners offense will remain the same even with a new offensive coordinator at the helm.

"Coach (Norvell) said they're still going to keep the offense the same. So I'm a-okay with that."

Jackson finished his senior year with 34-catches for 438-yards and 4-touchdowns and will look to try and get on the field as a true freshman next year when he arrives in Norman in June.
