Dorial Green-Beckham Has Arrived For His Visit To Missouri

DGB has touched down in Missouri for his visit.

Dorial Green-Beckham, the top receiver recruit in the country, has arrived for his official visit to Missouri, according to SB Nation Kansas City. He's being accompanied by his his family, according to Pete Scantlebury.

Green-Beckham is 6'6", 220 pounds, with excellent speed and athleticism, etc. He's considered the top receiver prospect since Julio Jones and A.J. Green in 2008. And many think he's better. And he's the best prospect in the state of Missouri in forever. Oh, and nobody says anything negative about his character. The consensus five-star recruit is humble, quiet and polite. DGB, as he is known, is considering the Arkansas Razorbacks, Missouri Tigers, Texas Longhorns, Oklahoma Sooners and Alabama Crimson Tide. The former three are considered much more likely destinations than the latter two.

Two additional nuggets of note on DGB, from SB Nation's Wescott Eberts, via twitter:

"LOL at Arkansas fans who think that Dorial Green-Beckham is in the bag. Could be in for a rude awakening on NSD. Uncommitted for a reason."

"After seeing Dorial Green-Beckham struggle with some drops in person, I notice more on film that he doesn't attack ball particularly well."

Some background is necessary here, as Green-Beckham finally took his visit to Arkansas last weekend, and many Razorback fans have been saying on various social media sites and message boards that DGB's recruitment is over. That is apparently not the case.
