Dorial Green-Beckham may have second shot at coming to Oklahoma

The Sooners and Dorial Green-Beckham know each other fairly well. DGB was a prized wide receiver in the 2012 recruiting class, and Oklahoma was one of his top schools.

Green-Beckham opted to stay in-state and play for the Missouri Tigers. In 2013, he led the SEC in receiving touchdowns and helped the Tigers to a 2014 Cotton Bowl Classic win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

His time at Missouri was cut short, however. DGB was dismissed from Mizzou after allegedly assaulting an eighteen-year-old women, which came after a couple of marijuana-related arrests.

Green-Beckham, a once promising college football star, appears to have a future up in the air. It’s been known he may opt to take a year off and enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

Although, maybe there is a chance DGB could find himself in Norman next year. The Football Braniacs’ Open Post yesterday released information from a source that Green-Beckham visited Oklahoma recently.

There has been murmurings that DGB may try to stay in the FBS ranks, but if he were to transfer to Oklahoma, the NCAA would almost certainly force Green-Beckham to sit out a season.

As pointed out by Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman, DGB played with Missouri as a true freshman. So if Green-Beckham were to come to Norman, he could plausibly redshirt this season, and have two years of eligibility remaining.

Whether Oklahoma would want DGB or not is another question. The Sooners have had a few troubled receivers come through their program. Trey Metoyer being the most recent.

However, guys like Ryan Broyles, who didn’t start his career in Norman off on a good note, came to be one of the best receivers to ever come through the University of Oklahoma.

DGB is a talented receiver, who could help a Sooners team lacking experienced receivers. DGB is a 6’6″ match-up nightmare. However, the clean image Oklahoma strives to maintain would be in jeopardy with a potentially “bad apple” in the locker room.

Once again, this is all rumor, none of this is fact. It appears DGB more than likely won’t be in Norman, but it’s not worth going unnoticed.

    Having Dorial would be an amazing part to OU’s offense and I would love it but I love the way Bob has ran this program and doesn’t put up with misconduct no matter how good someone is. I mean for gosh sake he kicked our starting QB off the team a few months before the season started. I honestly just cant see how someone with his skill can be so dumb and make such dumb decisions. He has so much potential to make millions and they let there anger get to them.
