And then there were three. That’s the word tonight from Geoff Ketchum who says via Twitter that Dorial Green-Beckham has officially cut a name off of the list of finalists. He writes, “Breaking: According to two sources with knowledge of the recruitment, DGB has told the UT staff that he will not be a Longhorn.” The Texas Longhorns were a fringe candidate over the last few weeks, so that’s really no surprise. But it does make it more official that some word is coming soon.
Tomorrow morning at 9:15am CT, DGB will finally make his announcement on television. Arkansas was the frontrunner until the last few days when John Hoover of the Tulsa World ran the report that a source told him Missouri was going to win the sweepstakes.
DGB is the most heralded recruit in the country and will be a boom for any recruiting class once he signs. Bobby Petrino’s offense would work wonders with his ability, but Gary Pinkel also knows how to use a speedy, athletic wideout (read: Jeremy Maclin). At least one team is out of the running for sure.
