Despite being dismissed from Missouri and previously facing a litany of legal issues, the Oklahoman is reporting that Dorial Green-Beckham is likely to be deemed eligible to play for Oklahoma immediately.
Sooners officials are reportedly very confident in the matter.
According to a report in The Oklahoman, the school is “very confident” that DGB will be approved for immediate eligibility thanks to an NCAA waiver. The school hasn’t even filed the appeal yet but plans to do so after receiving some additional documentation from Missouri. The report also says that Oklahoma plans on appealing using the appropriately dubbed “run-off” waiver.
The run-off waiver was created by the NCAA for instances in which a player was removed from their former program for reasons beyond the player’s control.
Green-Beckham finished the 2013 season with 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns.
