Does Missouri Lead For Dorial Green-Beckham? Separating Fact From Rumor

Dorial Green-Beckham is arguably the top recruit in the country. He's easily the top receiver recruit. At 6'6", 220 pounds with freakish athleticism, it's not hard to see why. The Missouri receiver prospect is expected to choose on National Signing Day (February 1) between Arkansas, Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma.

A report today from John Hoover of the Tulsa World has Green-Beckham picking Missouri over Arkansas, which is a surprise.

Elsewhere, Bill Connelly of SB Nation's excellent Missouri site, Rock M Nation, has a tremendous piece on Dorial Green-Beckham. Connelly, who will attend DGB's announcement ceremony on Wednesday at 10:15 EST, tracks Green-Beckham's recruitment from tries to cut through all the rumor. He does an excellent job getting down only to the known facts.Then he gets into the rumors, allowing you to decide for yourself. There have been hundreds of pieces written about DGB during this recruiting cycle. This is by far the best. And after separating fact from rumor, what is Connelly's take on Green-Beckham?

Missouri has been on DGB for four years now, and there's no question that David Yost, Andy Hill, Gary Pinkel, and probably every other staff member have gotten to know him rather well through the years. That he brought his entire family to Columbia is a good thing to me (I am, after all, a Missouri fan, so of course I am going to see it that way), and that he actually went through with the official to Columbia says something good as well. If he were truly as sold on Arkansas as soon have been trying to make you believe, there would have been no need to make another official visit simply out of "courtesy."
