And now we're cooking: shortly after the Tulsa World's John Hoover reported No. 1 recruit Dorial Green-Beckham will choose the Missouri Tigers over the Arkansas Razorbacks and so forth, a wave of confirmations arrived, along with a denial. Everything feels much more formal now.
First, the denial: CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd spoke with DGB's adoptive father and high school coach, who says there's nothing to it. Not to be rude, but one probably shouldn't take that to mean good news or bad news for Mizzou. There's still an announcement to be made.
Voices from multiple sides of the equation are now casting their lots with Green-Beckham to the Tigers. PowerMizzou.com's Pete Scantlebury says he's been leaning closer and closer to Missouri for about a month now, while multiple national Rivals writers have switched their National Signing Day predictions for DGB from Arkansas to Missouri.
Nobody's calling it a done deal, but the takeaway is that multiple outlets both in Missouri's market and elsewhere are reporting Mizzou appears to be the clear leader.
