Just so we’re clear, we’re talking about a recruit — albeit a highly-touted one — at a basketball game. So, yes, we recognize that it’s a slow Saturday, so please save your “Who cares!”, “Yawn”, etc. Thank you.
That said, there are certainly more than a few fans at Texas, Arkansas and Missouri who would be interested to know the intent of star wide receiver from Hillcrest HS (MO), Dorial Green-Beckham. Those three schools are considered to be the finalist for the No. 1 recruit in the country according to both Scout.com and Rivals.com, although DGB, as he’s affectionately known, has yet to tip his hand as to which school leads in his recruitment.
With signing day around the corner — next Wednesday, to be specific — DGB made one final visit, this time to home-state team Missouri at a basketball game against Texas Tech. The receiver was met with an adoring crowd, cheers and “M-I-Z-D-G-B” chants during the game.
Whether it’ll be enough to sway the highly-sought in-state talent remains to be seen — personally, I was impressed by Gary Pinkel’s helicopter entrance, although that could be as simple as not being able to drive — but thankfully for Mizzou fans, they’ll only have to wait a few more days.
