NORMAN — Former Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham is in Norman on Thursday visiting the Sooners, sources close to the football team confirmed.

Sources also confirmed that Green-Beckham has signed a financial aid agreement with the school, allowing him to visit with OU coaches. The signing of the agreement doesn’t mean Green-Beckham will join the team or even enroll in the school, but would give the Sooners coaches the ability to meet with the receiver during a “dead period” for college football recruiting.

Green-Beckham’s presence on campus was first reported by Rivals.com.

During his visit, he won’t be meeting with Sooners coach Bob Stoops, who is on vacation. Co-offensive coordinators Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell, who also coaches receivers, are in town and available to meet with Green-Beckham.

Shortly before noon Thursday, Green-Beckham, along with his father and brother, emerged from the Switzer Center with OU coaches Cale Gundy and Norvell.
