Yes, we know Dorial Green-Beckham is from Missouri and ended up sticking close to home, choosing the Tigers on Wednesday. One could surmise he chose the school because of its location. One would be wrong.
It actually came down to baby-naming rights and an offer from offensive coordinator David Yost that Green-Beckham couldn't refuse.
In April, 3 hours before David Yost's wife gave birth to their son, he texted Green-Beckham, offered naming rights if he committed.— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) February 1, 2012
Green-Beckham replied, "Dorial Yost sounds good to me." It was all meant in fun, I think— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) February 1, 2012
Step your game up, college football coaches. Gotta meet or exceed the new bar that's been set.
