Nation's Top Recruit Dorial Green-Beckham Chooses Missouri

The consensus top recruit in the country WR Dorial Green-Beckham has eschewed the post-National Signing Day routine of recent top recruits and chosen Missouri over Arkansas and Oklahoma. It's a huge pickup for Gary Pinkel as he guides his program into the SEC next year.

At 6'6", 220 lbs, he's been compared to other big receivers in recent years like A.J. Green and Julio Jones. SBN's recruiting guy Bud Elliott has this to say about him:

Fun fact: Green-Beckham was offered by every team to win a national title in the last quarter century.

He doesn't have the agility and flexibility of a 5'10" slot guy, but for his size (6'6" 220), it is quite special. Green-Beckham catches the ball very well and has excellent speed. Equally impressive is his consistent physicality. Green-Beckham doesn't allow the poor competition (and this is some poor high school football) to drag down his game. And those around him say he is a good kid -- quite the opposite of the stereotype that is the prima donna receiver. He is an immediate contributor in the SEC.

It's a bit of a stretch to say that he'll personally make Missouri an instant contender in the SEC East, but he'll make a tremendous impact if he lives up to his billing.
