Oklahoma City, OK, United States (4E Sports) – Ex-Missouri Tigers receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has joined Oklahoma, according to Sooners football coach Bob Stoops.

The 6-foot-6 Green-Beckham was kicked out of Missouri’s program in April after several off-the-field incidents.

He allegedly pushed an 18-year-old student down at least four stairs and had two marijuana-related arrests during his time at Missouri.

Green-Beckham’s admission to Oklahoma came with specific stipulations including continued rehabilitation and drug testing. He will be subject to a “zero tolerance” policy.

“Dorial understands the privilege and responsibilities of representing the Oklahoma football program,” said Stoops.

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.

In his two years with the Tigers, Green-Beckham caught 17 touchdown passes, which is tied for the SEC’s highest over that span.

Green-Beckham is exploring if there is any way he can get a waiver from the NCAA to play this season based on the “run-off” rule.

He was going through an orientation process on Thursday in preparation for Oklahoma’s July summer school session which begins next week.
