Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops seemed to indicate that redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham intends to return and play for the school in 2015.
"That isn’t something that’s been decided," Stoops said of DGB. "Right now it seems that he wants to do that and is heading that way and we want to support him in every possible way." Green-Beckham will be eligible to practice and attend classes all year despite his eligibility appeal being denied. We still think it is 50-50, at best, that DGB actually stays and plays for the Sooners in 2015. His talent is incredible. Aug 27 - 12:35 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranks Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham as the No. 15 overall prospect.

"The character concerns which prompted Green-Beckham's transfer from Missouri will certainly require investigating but there is no denying his blend of size, acceleration and ball-skills," Rang wrote. "The skill-set is so rare, in fact, that DGB is likely to earn first round consideration in 2015 even though the NCAA ruled the junior ineligible to play this year." ESPN's Todd McShay calls DGB the draft's biggest boom-or-bust prospect. We probably won't know until January whether he'll bolt for the draft or return to play a season for the Sooners.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham "could easily be the top-rated wide receiver prospect" based on talent alone, writes ESPN's Todd McShay.

According to the analyst, DGB is the draft's biggest boom-or-bust prospect. "He's still an unfinished product on the field and he has some serious red flags off the field," McShay wrote. "He was dismissed from the Missouri football program in April after allegedly forcing his way into an apartment and pushing a woman down stairs (he was not arrested and is not facing charges), after some previous run-ins with the law during his time there. What he brings as a player is an elite combination of height, bulk and straight-line speed; he possesses good separation skills, a massive catch radius with good body control and overall ball skills, and excellent big-play ability." McShay wrote this analysis before Green-Beckham's appeal for immediate eligibility was denied. We might not know until January whether DGB will bolt for the 2015 draft or return to play a season for the Sooners. NFLDraftScout.com ranks Green-Beckham as the No. 39 overall player in the 2015 class.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham "has the ability to be a similar pro prospect as A.J. Green," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Green-Beckham's appeal for immediate eligibility was denied last week, so the ex-Missouri Tiger now must decide if he'll jump into the spring draft or return to play for the Sooners in 2015. NFLDraftScout.com ranks Green-Beckham as the No. 39 overall player in the 2015 class. "Factoring in the character concerns, it would be unfair to stamp him with a [first] round projection this early in the process," Brugler wrote. "Green-Beckham has until mid-January to make a final decision on whether he will be a part of the 2015 NFL Draft class, so stay tuned to this situation."

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore WR Dorial Green-Beckham's appeal for immediate eligibility has been denied.

The school released the news via twitter, adding it accepts the decision. Green-Beckham transferred from Missouri this offseason, following a recent off-field issue. The Sooner prospect applied for a waiver appeal from the NCAA almost two weeks ago, but with the recent denial, it's possible he could enter the 2015 draft. In fact, we expect him to leave Oklahoma without playing a down for the team. He will be allowed to practice with the Sooners all season.

Oklahoma has officially applied for junior WR Dorial Green-Beckham's waiver appeal from the NCAA.

It is now up to the NCAA to grant or deny the appeal. Green-Beckham transferred from Missouri this offseason following a recent off-field issue. The Missouri program has wished him the best and Oklahoma is reportedly optimistic about the possibility of the NCAA granting approval. The decision could be the difference in DGB never playing a snap for the Sooners, as we think he would still enter the 2015 draft if declared ineligible. He will be able to practice with Oklahoma either way.

Out of 12 WRs watched, Josh Norris ranked Oklahoma junior (or redshirt sophomore) Dorial Green-Beckham as the top prospect at his position.

Rotoworld's own Josh Norris compares Green-Beckham to AJ Green because of his ability to get down field and body control to come down with contested catches. Louisville's DeVante Parker is the other name that landed a first-round tag to go along with DGB. Norris seems very interested in tight end to receiver convert Devin Funchess, but notes the Michigan prospect needs to be more consistent when facing tight coverage.

Oklahoma is "very confident" junior (or redshirt sophomore) WR Dorial Green-Beckham will be awarded immediate eligibility, according to The Oklahoman.

"Green-Beckham’s appeal will center around the fact that he was never charged in the incident that ultimately got him kicked off Missouri’s football team," according to beat writer Jason Kersey. This was the same incident where DGB reportedly broke into a home and pushed a woman down stairs. The Oklahoman adds Oklahoma will pursue a "run-off" waiver, which refers to players that were removed from programs for reasons "beyond their control." Oklahoma has not filed their waiver appeal at this time, as they are waiting for more paperwork from Missouri.

Oklahoma has yet to file their waiver appeal for junior (or redshirt sophomore) WR Dorial Green-Beckham.

Oklahoma "officials are waiting on one last bit of paperwork from Missouri," Emig writes. "Green-Beckham’s former school has been cooperative with his new one generally, but now must help once more." We doubt DGB will be awarded immediate eligibility, but crazier things have happened. There is a chance the receiver never plays a down for the Sooners if he is forced to sit out the 2014 season. Green-Beckham will be able to practice with the Sooners no matter what.

Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel is not involved in Oklahoma junior (or redshirt sophomore) WR Dorial Green-Beckham's waiver situation.

"He's in a good place," Pinkel told reporters at SEC Media Days. "I want things to work well for Dorial." Green-Beckham and Oklahoma are hoping the talented wide receiver will be deemed eligible to play in 2014. If not, there is a chance he declares for the 2015 NFL Draft and never plays a meaningful snap for Oklahoma. Regardless of the eligibility ruling, DGB will practice with the Sooners this season.

Oklahoma will pursue a waiver from the NCAA for junior WR Dorial Green-Beckham to gain immediate eligibility, according to beat writer Jason Kersey.

We doubt the NCAA grants such a waiver, as many who were given immediate eligibility in the past transferred due to family emergencies or medical issues. As far as we know, DGB does not have either. The receiver was dismissed from Missouri after a number of off-field issues. He could be on the scout team with Baker Mayfield for the entire season.

Former Missouri junior WR Dorial Green-Beckham has officially joined the Oklahoma football program.

DGB is not eligible to play until 2015, and we wonder if he ever takes an official snap for the Sooners. Green-Beckham might be taking this opportunity to be with a team during his "off" year, which is something NFL teams will likely prefer over sitting out the season at home. This would make the receiver a redshirt sophomore this season. Green-Beckham will enroll in classes and participate in team activities, and he could still enter the 2015 NFL Draft. DGB's final act that led to his dismissal from Missouri included unlawfully forcing his way into an apartment seeking his girlfriend and then pushed a different woman down "at least four stairs," causing a minor hand injury.

Former Missouri junior WR Dorial Green-Beckham is on Oklahoma's campus Thursday morning visiting with coaches, according to Rivals' Carey Murdock.

The Oklahoman previously reported the Sooners had interested in the extremely talented but troubled receiver. DGB had previously been linked to Eastern Illinois, an FCS program, meaning he would have been eligible for the 2014 season. However, those rumors were never more than smoke, leading many to believe Green-Beckham would simply sit out the season and enter the 2015 draft. DGB's final act that led to his dismissal from Missouri included unlawfully forcing his way into an apartment seeking his girlfriend and then pushed a different woman down "at least four stairs," causing a minor hand injury. If the receiver chooses Oklahoma, he would have to sit out the upcoming season to satisfy NCAA regulations.
Jul 3 - 10:17 AM

The Oklahoman reports that former Missouri junior WR Dorial Green-Beckham interests the Sooners.

"Sources with knowledge of Green-Beckham’s situation have indicated there’s at least marginal interest in bringing the troubled superstar to Oklahoma," read the report. Green-Beckham's previously was leaning towards transferring to Eastern Illinois in order to retain his 2014 eligibility, but those plans hit a snag for unspecified reasons. If DGB were to sign with Oklahoma, he would be forced to sit out a season. Green-Beckham (6-foot-6, 225 pounds) was dismissed by Mizzou after a burglary investigation and alleged unlawful entry into an apartment searching for his girlfriend. DGB was also previously suspended twice for drug related issues. He comes with a laundry list of off-the-field problems, but the former No. 1 overall recruit also possesses No. 1 overall pick talent.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks would advise former Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham to transfer and play another collegiate season instead of sitting out the year before entering the 2015 NFL draft.

"DGB would be wise to make his way to an FCS school where he can continue to develop his game, while repairing his reputation as a talented, but troubled, playmaker," Brooks wrote. Green-Beckham's reported transfer to Eastern Illinois hit a snag, and the media is now speculating that he's leaning towards sitting out the upcoming season while training for the 2015 draft. DGB is done with FBS football, as he'd be forced to sit out this coming season to transfer to a program at the NCAA's highest level. That won't happen. If he goes to an FCS program, however, Green-Beckham will be eligible to play immediately.
