Bob Stoops called Missouri coach 'couple of months ago' about Dorial Green-Beckham Published: July 16, 2014

The Dorial Green-Beckham-to-OU idea didn't just materialize in an instant.

At SEC Media Days Wednesday, Missouri coach Gary Pinkel told ESPN that Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops called him "a couple of months ago" to ask about Green-Beckham. The former five-star receiver was dismissed from Missouri in April.

Earlier Wednesday, Pinkel said that Green-Beckham was "in a good place" at OU. Green-Beckham joined the Sooners football program in July.

"He made mistakes, had a chance to learn lessons," Pinkel said Wednesday. "He can do a lot of great things for himself."
