Jay Norvell praises Dorial Green-Beckham

Jay Norvell had nothing but all-out praise for Dorial Green-Beckham during his session with reporters Monday afternoon.

“He’s like a different guy,” Norvell said. “He’s been working really hard and doing a lot of great things off the field too. … He’s growing and maturing.”

Green-Beckham was a five-star recruit and considered the top prospect in the country nearly three years ago. He signed with Missouri, catching 87 passes for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons there.

Despite his extraordinary talent, Green-Beckham struggled to stay out of trouble off the field. He was arrested twice for marijuana-related offenses, and was dismissed from the team in April after an investigation into whether he assaulted an 18-year-old woman.

He signed a financial-aid agreement with Oklahoma in early July, and the NCAA denied the university’s request for immediate eligibility about a week before the season began.
