Dorial Green-Beckham Receives Missouri-Sized Cheers From Tigers Fans

The Missouri Tigers hope that a helicopter visit from Gary Pinkel and the chance to play with their dynamic offense is enough to help lure Dorial Green-Beckham to Mizzou. But it’s clear that Missouri fans are also willing to pitch in to help offer some support of their own, as a recent showing by Tigers’ fans helped show DGB just how much he’s wanted by the Missouri faithful.

“Nearly two weeks earlier, Dorial Green-Beckham was on national television in an All-America football game making a spectacular one-handed touchdown catch before thousands of spectators inside the Alamodome in Texas,” writes Bryan Burwell. "Now here he was in this nondescript high school gym in St. Louis County, appearing before a little more than 300 people in a prep hoop tournament against a junior varsity team from Jackson County.

“Word had spread across internet chat rooms that the 6-foot-6 All-America and Parade Magazine national player of the year from Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Mo., would be playing in the Dave Sinclair Memorial Invitational Tournament. And with only 12 days left before National Signing Day when Green-Beckham is expected to announce whether he will sign with Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma or Texas, Mizzou faithful took this as one last opportunity to leave the kid they call “DGB” with a favorable impression."

DGB is the highest rated recruit left in the country and is the best wide receiver available to any team. Unfortunately, he visited Arkansas over the weekend and it’s also reportedly his brother’s favorite choice. All things considered, it will be interesting to follow Green-Beckham’s final decision up until National Signing Day.
