According to multiple reports, former Missouri Tigers receiver, Dorial Green-Beckham has signed with the Oklahoma Sooners.
Coming out of high school, Beckham was the number one prospect in college football. He somewhat lived up to the hype with the Tigers the last two seasons, but has had issues off the field that lead to his dismissal from the University of Missouri.
Last season, he led the Tigers with 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns. In the SEC Championship Game against Auburn, Green-Beckham caught six passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns. (source CFB sports reference)
As of now, DGB is ineligible to play this season due to the Division one rule on transfer players. However, OU plans to appeal that rule to the NCAA to try and get him on the field this season. Usually in these cases, the NCAA will hear the appeals if their were hardships from family issues or other outstanding issues.
It’s unknown what case the Sooners will try to make here, as DGB was released due to his off the field issues. He’s had several issues with Marijuana, including a case of him getting caught smoking in the parking lot of his dorm room.
Regardless, if he can get on the field, he is one hell of a talent and would immediately be the best receiver on OU’s roster. It’s a shame he couldn’t get his act together at Mizzou, as he was on pace to be one of the best players to ever wear the black and gold.
We’ll just have to see how this whole situation works out with the Sooners.
