Dorial Green-Beckham Receives Visit From Above From Missouri's Gary Pinkel

Gary Pinkel is pulling out all the stops in his recruitment of the most dynamic wide receiver available this season in hopes that he chooses the Missouri Tigers as they enter the SEC next season. And if you wonder the lengths that a college coach will go to impress a high school student, no matter how talented, just check out the fact (and video) that Pinkel descended upon DGB's high school field in a helicopter.

DGB says his choices are now down to two schools with Missouri being the finalist along with Arkansas. Bobby Petrino is going to put up a good fight for Green-Beckham, so perhaps Pinkel has to go to such lengths to get him.

"Hillcrest TV caught Pinkel's helicopter landing on Birmingham Field at the end of the school day to visit with Green-Beckham," writes Chris Replogle. "It's one of several visits between Pinkel and the star high school player throughout his stellar high school career. Arkansas Head Coach Bobby Petrino visited Green-Beckham during class too Wednesday. Petrino, instead, drove to the school. Reports say the 6'6", 220-pound receiver will visit the Fayetteville campus this weekend."
