No. 1 Recruit Dorial Green-Beckham Signs With Missouri

Wednesday February 1st, 2012

The number one high school football recruit, Dorial Green-Beckham signed with The University of Missouri, according to USA Today.

Green-Beckham, a 6-6 220-pound wide receiver form Hillcrest, Missouri chose the Tigers over Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Texas. He is expected to play immediately for the Tigers.

"Dorial Green-Beckham, just on pure athleticism alone, is too good to keep off the field," said ESPNU’s recruiting analyst Tom Luginbill "He's also at a position who can make the easiest transition. The only question is whether he can get off press coverage. Some guys learn it and some guys don't." During Green-Beckham’s career at Hillcrest he set a national record with 6,447 receiving yards, and broke his state season record with 2,233 yards on 119 catches and 24 touchdowns. He also set state records in single-game receiving yards, 354 and career touchdown catches, 72.
