The NCAA rejected Oklahoma's waiver request that would have allowed wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham to play this season.

The school announced Friday that its petition for Green-Beckham's immediate eligibility was turned down. He will be required to sit out the 2014 season before becoming eligible in 2015.

The 6-foot-6 Green-Beckham, who had 59 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns last season at Missouri, was dismissed from the program earlier this year after several off-the-field incidents and transferred to Oklahoma this summer.

"The University of Oklahoma has learned that the waiver request it entered on behalf of Dorial Green-Beckham has been denied by the NCAA," the university said in a release. "The university accepts that decision and will continue to provide the appropriate assistances to Dorial, just as it does with other students, in helping him grow personally from the many opportunities available to him at OU."

Oklahoma's request was filed earlier this month under a "run-off rule" for players who transfer because of reasons out of their control. Green-Beckham was ousted at at Missouri after allegedly pushing an 18-year-old student down some stairs during a break-in at her apartment. No charges were filed after the the student and a roommate declined to pursue the case.

Former LSU point guard Anthony Hickey used the run-off rule to gain immediate eligibility at Oklahoma State after being dismissed by the Tigers.

The Sooners were hoping to add Green-Beckham, one of the top recruits in the country two years ago, to its receiving corps but now will have to wait a year.
