Former Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham will enroll at Oklahoma, Sooners football coach Bob Stoops announced on Thursday. Green-Beckham, who was dismissed from Missouri after a series of off-field troubles after two seasons, will sit out this season and become eligible to play for Oklahoma in 2015, according to the university. “I appreciate the opportunity from Coach Stoops and the University of Oklahoma,” Green-Beckham said in a release. “I’ve disappointed myself and others in the past. I know that I have a lot work to do and I’m ready to get started.” The Sooners are also fired up about the move. Assistant coach Jay Norvell, Oklahoma’s co-offensive coordinator, posted a photo of him and Green-Beckham on on his Twitter account with the caption, “Excited to welcome Dorial Green-Beckham to our Oklahoma Family.” At Missouri, Green-Beckham, a Springfield native, largely delivered on the promise of being recognized as the nation’s top recruit by one national service. 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. But on-field excellence came with off-field headaches for Mizzou.
