Dorial Green-Beckham joins Oklahoma; eligible in 2015


Former Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has a new home, starting in 2015. The Oklahoma Sooners announced that Green-Beckham, also known as “DGB” has joined their program, and is eligible to play in 2015. In a statement on the team’s website, coach Bob Stoops announced the move.

“We are pleased to welcome Dorial to the University of Oklahoma, where he is excited to continue his education and resume his playing career, Dorial understands the privilege and responsibilities of representing the Oklahoma Football program. He is a talented young man who is eager to get to work with the rest of our team in the classroom and on the field.”

Green-Beckham also commented on his joining of the Sooners, acknowledging that he disappointed himself and others in the past.

“I appreciate this opportunity from Coach Stoops and the University of Oklahoma, there are people here who will help me build a strong foundation. I’ve disappointed myself and others in the past. I know that I have a lot of work to do and I’m ready to get started. OU is a great program and I feel privileged to be part of it. The university has made the expectations clear and I want to live up to them and be a positive part of the campus and team. I also want to thank Coach Gary Pinkel and the University of Missouri.”

In his two seasons at Missouri, DGB caught 87 passes, for 1,278 yards, and 17 touchdowns, he had 12 of his 17 touchdowns this past season.

Green-Beckham was kicked off the Missouri Tigers team after an altercation with his girlfriend and her friend, in which he allegedly pushed the friend down four flights of stairs.

Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee believes Green-Beckham may not even play for the Sooners and could just go straight to the NFL Draft.

That’s a big prediction from Sallee, but DGB has all the NFL talent in the world, yet it could help his stock to be around the Sooners program.
