IOWA CITY, Iowa - Former Iowa wide receiver Cameron Wilson is in the Johnson County Jail this morning after an operating while intoxicated arrest, according to court records.

Wilson, of Dublin, Ohio, came up during Big Ten media days last week in Chicago. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz was asked if the 6-1, 200-pounder was still on the team. Ferentz didn't offer a specific status update.

"It's not unusual this time of year for players to be looking around or contemplating [leaving Iowa]," Ferentz said. "We don't have any announcements right now, but I imagine we'll have the roster finalized when we get together here in the next few weeks." later confirmed through text with his father, Kenneth, that Cameron Wilson had indeed left the team and would transfer to another school. He caught 10 passes for 131 yards in the spring game. He would've been headed into his first game action this season as a redshirt freshman.

He was charged OWI first offense by the Iowa City Police.

Iowa begins its fall camp with players reporting on Sunday.
