“We are pleased to welcome Dorial to the University of Oklahoma, where he is excited to continue his education and resume his playing career,” Sooners head coach Bob Stoops said. “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 was asked to leave the Missouri football team back in April after being suspended indefinitely for an incident involving a woman in which the former top high school prospect allegedly shoved her “down at least four stairs” when attempting to force his way into an apartment. It is important to note that Green-Beckham was never charged by police for the incident, however he ran afoul with the law after multiple marijuana arrests.
So what is Oklahoma getting with DGB?
Clearly Green-Beckham is a physical freak at 6-foot-6, 225 pounds with a near 40-inch vertical leap and mid-4.4 speed. He has the prototypical size of an NFL star and he should make for an excellent target for quarterback Trevor Knight, whenever he becomes eligible.
With all of Green-Beckham’s eye-popping talent comes his hair-raising judgment as he can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Still, the more talent a player has the more chances he will get and hopefully for Bob Stoops and the Sooners, Green-Beckham will make the most of what’s likely to be his last chance at playing FBS football.
Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman is reporting Oklahoma is pursuing a waiver to make Green-Beckham eligible for the 2014 season.
