BREAKING: NCAA Denies Oklahoma's Eligibility Waiver For Dorial Green-Beckham

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma will be without Missouri transfer Dorial Green-Beckham this year after the university announced Friday evening the NCAA had denied the Sooners' eligibility waiver. 

The university released the following statement late Friday:

"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 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."

Green-Beckham would have brought much-needed experience and size to a talented, but young wide receiver group for the Sooners. He will sit out this year and be eligible to play for the Sooners in 2015, provided he doesn't leave for the NFL Draft. 

Green-Beckham had 87 catches for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons for Missouri.
