Dorial Green-Beckham To Commit To Missouri Over Arkansas, According To Report

More: Dorial Green-Beckham to Mizzou? Separating fact from rumor.

Fellow fans of baby animal-related National Signing Day stunts: we may have to pretend Springfield, MO's Dorial Green-Beckham, the nation's No. 1 recruit, will produce a baby tiger instead of a baby pig on Wednesday. According to the Tulsa World's John Hoover, Green-Beckham will choose the Missouri Tigers over the Arkansas Razorbacks, Oklahoma Sooners or Texas Longhorns:

John E. Hoover@johnehoover Dorial Green-Beckham will choose #Mizzou instead of #Arkansas or #Sooners, source says. No. 1 prospect in America. #DGB

Keeping DGB in-state would be a massive victory for Gary Pinkel and company. It would also be a sign Mizzou is capable of recruiting at a SEC East level, which may come in handy very, very soon. The enormous wide receiver saved Missouri for his final campus visit, arriving Friday night in Columbia and drawing about as much attention as the basketball team at a Saturday night game.

We'll wait to hear the official word from the man himself on Wednesday.
