Texas A&M held their first spring scrimmage on Kyle Field Sunday afternoon which attracted some big time 2011 prospects and a few surprise visitors to College Station for the day. One of those surprise names included Oklahoma Sooner pledge, Kameel Jackson. The 6-foot-1,185-pound Jackson made the trip down with his brother Kenzee Jackson, who signed with Texas A&M-Commerce in February, but is looking to possibly transfer to the main campus next year. This gave Kameel the perfect opportunity to take in the scenery at A&M.

"My brother is thinking about transferring to A&M from A&M-Commerce so I just tagged along. I wanted to see what they had to offer for myself as well so I decided to come check it out."

Jackson, who had 54 catches for 761 yards and 7 touchdowns last season, is considered a top target for the Aggies in 2011. Kameel and his brother Kenzee were given the red-carpet treatment before they hit the field for practice and according to Jackson, he liked what he saw.

"I saw a lot of good stuff while I was there. Their weight room was really nice and their in-door facility was top-notch compared to other colleges. I was impressed with it all. I liked their offense and how much they were throwing the ball. My brother and I were in the team meeting before practice and we watched a couple of packages on film. They throw the ball quite a bit so I like that."

The long-time Sooner commit surprised many people with his presence on Sunday. The Aggies verbally offered Kameel back in July of 2009, but he quickly fell off the market a couple of months later when he committed to OU. That didn't stop the A&M staff from trying to put the hard sell on Jackson while they had him on campus.

"I got to talk to the offensive coordinator and wide-receivers coach. He pitched a little recruiting stuff at me but that's about it. We didn't get to talk about it too much. I like how they didn't try to pressure me or anything like that."

The Aggies have some serious ground to make up on the Arlington native, but just getting Jackson on campus was a step in the right direction. Kameel is still solid to the Sooners but if Corey Nelson taught Aggie fans anything, nothing is set in stone until signing day.

"Right now I'm committed to OU so I'm not really looking for anything else."
