DGB: DENIED

Talented receiver Dorial-Green-Beckham will not be allowed to play for the Oklahoma Sooners in 2014, the NCAA ruled Friday. Beckham was dismissed from the University of Missouri in April following several scrapes with the law. He will now have to sit out the entire season if he has aspirations of playing for the Sooners in 2015.

DGB transferred to Oklahoma with high hopes of being granted a waiver to be eligible to play immediately. The University of Oklahoma had the following to say following the NCAA’s ruling: “The University of Oklahoma has learned that the waiver request it entered on behalf of Dorial Green-Beckham has been denied by the NCAA,” the university said in a statement released Friday night. “The University accepts that decision and will continue to provide the appropriate assistance to Dorial, just as it does with other students in helping him grow personally from the many opportunities available to him at OU.”
