The race for Dorial Green-Beckham, the top college football recruit in the country, is apparently tighter than reports had indicated in recent days. The rumor had Green-Beckham down to his final two competitors: the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Missouri Tigers. Unfortunately for Bobby Petrino and Gary Pinkel, the other three on his official “top five” are still very much alive according to his father, John Beckham.
DGB received a helicopter visit recently from Pinkel, and he’ll be in Fayetteville this weekend to hang out with the Arkansas staff. While Missouri is closer to home and could be the sentimental favorite for that reason, Arkansas brings the high-profile passing attack of the Razorbacks and it’s been reported that Arkansas is his brother’s favorite team. Yet word that others are in it only makes each visit more meaningful.
There’s no word if Green-Beckham has visits scheduled to any more schools at this point. Perhaps another one could come next weekend after Arkansas, but it would not be that surprising to see him stopping here and making his decision. While the Tigers and Razorbacks are still the favorites, the chance is there for the Longhorns, Crimson Tide or Sooners to make a surprise move.
