Ex-Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham joins Oklahoma

Receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who was dismissed by Missouri in April after several off-the-field incidents, was added to Oklahoma's roster after a visit with the Sooners. One of college football's most explosive receivers, Green-Beckham had a breakout season for the Tigers in 2013 with 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore. He was one of the nation's top recruits in the Class of 2012, ranking No. 3 on the ESPN 150. The 6-foot-6 Green-Beckham was kicked out of Missouri's program after an initial suspension. His troubles included being investigated for allegedly pushing an 18-year-old Missouri student down at least four stairs. No charges were filed and the case was closed after the student and a roommate declined to press charges. Green-Beckham also had two marijuana-related arrests during his time at Missouri.
