Dorial Green-Beckham goes with the Tigers

I really thought that we would get him because of the position that he plays and the fact that Bobby Petrino is the best coach in the USA for players like him. Below is the story from Arkansas Sports 360:

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Dorial Green-Beckham is headed to Missouri.

Green-Beckham, a 6-6, 220-pounder, who earned the USA Today and Parade Magazine player of the year honors, chose the Tigers over Arkansas and a list of schools including Texas, Alabama and Oklahoma. He said he slept on the decision Monday and felt good about it, informing his family of the Missouri choice on Tuesday.

Explaining his decision to an estimated crowd of 1,500, the receiver said he felt “at home” at Missouri.

Rated the No. 1 wide receiver in the country by recruiting services and considered one of the top 3 overall prospects regardless of position, Green-Beckham made his announcement in a packed gym at Hillcrest High. ESPNU carried the announcement live and an estimated 75 Missouri, Arkansas, regional and national media were on hand.

“It’s an honor to announce I’ll be continuing my education at,” Green Beckham said, reaching for a hat, “The University of Missouri.”
