Bob Stoops wouldn’t speak much Monday about Dorial Green-Beckham’s situation a few days after the NCAA denied a waiver request for immediate eligibility and Oklahoma all but announced it wouldn’t pursue the matter further.

But Stoops did say Green-Beckham remained in class at OU and that he planned—right now—on staying around next season.

Green-Beckham is eligible to enter next year’s NFL Draft and would likely be a high pick if available after a big season at Missouri last year before he was dismissed from the team.

“That isn’t something that’s been decided,” Stoops said of whether or not Green-Beckham would stay. “Right now it seems that he wants to do that and is heading that way and we want to support him in every possible way.”

Green-Beckham sitting out this season leaves the Sooners with just one wide receiver—Sterling Shepard—with significant collegiate experience. Durron Neal has seen a good amount of playing time the last two years but has just 18 catches and no touchdowns.
