NORMAN, Ok--Three years after heavily recruiting Dorial Green-Beckham out of Hillcrest High School in Springfield, the Oklahoma Sooners finally have the wide receiver in crimson and cream.

Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops announced Thursday that Dorial Green-Beckham will join the team immediately.

He'll be able to practice with the team this fall and play for OU in 2015.

That's the NCAA rule because he's transferring from one division one school to another.

Reports from Oklahoma say the Sooners are going to appeal that ruling hoping Green-Beckham can play this fall.
"We are pleased to welcome Dorial to the University of Oklahoma, where he is excited to continue his education and resume his playing career," Stoops said. "Dorial understands the privilege and responsibilities of representing the Oklahoma Football program. He is a talented young man who is eager to get to work with the rest of our team in the classroom and on the field."

"I appreciate this opportunity from Coach Stoops and the University of Oklahoma," said Green-Beckham. "There are people here who will help me build a strong foundation. I've disappointed myself and others in the past. I know that I have a lot of work to do and I'm ready to get started. OU is a great program and I feel privileged to be part of it. The university has made the expectations clear and I want to live up to them and be a positive part of the campus and team. I also want to thank Coach Gary Pinkel and the University of Missouri."

Green-Beckham was the nation's top high school prospect and picked Mizzou over both Oklahoma and Arkansas in February of 2012.

He played two seasons for the Tigers before Missouri coach Gary Pinkel dismissed Green-Beckham from the team following a number of marijuana related arrests and an altercation at a Columbia apartment.

At Mizzou, Green-Beckham caught 87 passes for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns.
