NORMAN — Dorial Green-Beckham is officially enrolled as a student at the University of Oklahoma.

The wide receiver transfer from Missouri appears in an OU student search.

Green-Beckham (6-foot-6, 225 pounds) caught 87 passes for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons at Missouri, and set the national high school record with 6,353 career receiving yards at Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Mo.

He was the No. 1 overall prospect in the recruiting class of 2012, and the Sooners were in the running for Green-Beckham until the very end of the process, when he signed with the Tigers.

According to the student search, Green-Beckham is listed as a sophomore academically. Football-wise, though, he is classified as a junior.

Per NCAA rules, Green-Beckham will have to sit out this season after transferring, although OU is pursuing a waiver that would give him immediate eligibility. He hasn’t redshirted yet, meaning that if he has to miss this season, he would have two years of eligibility remaining with the Sooners.

Also noteworthy from the OU student search engine is that two incoming freshmen remain unenrolled — offensive lineman Orlando Brown and defensive back Vontre McQuinnie. Every other OU newcomer is now searchable on the website.
