When a player is in the spotlight like Dorial Green-Beckham has been over the last few years, stories are bound to become sensationalized. Every visit is analyzed. Every statement is examined. Yet the top recruit in the country has yet to tip his hand. MaxPrep’s Stephen Spiewak says he can thank his family for that.
Spiewak writes, “The nation’s No. 1 recruit, also a U.S. Air Force All-American and former National Athlete of the Year, and his family have done an outstanding job of handling the recruiting process. They accommodated the media whenever possible but have avoided putting Green-Beckham in the limelight to get peppered about recruiting questions. As a result, recruiting fans have had just a small taste of Green-Beckham’s thought process. Certainly not enough to develop a truly informed opinion.”
At this point, it’s a guessing game as to where he will go, although the rumors often break down into Arkansas versus Missouri. Yet DGB’s family insists that the top five remain the top five, and in terms of source material, that’s about as good as it gets until February 1 for National Signing Day.
