Missouri Football Recruit Dorial Green-Beckham Is 'Calvin Johnson And Julio Jones Hybrid'

There's no shortage of praise for Springfield, Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. That's what comes with the territory as the No. 1 high school football prospect in the nation on many lists. He also happens to be very interested in the Missouri Tigers (and vice versa).

That said, who exactly would Gary Pinkel be getting if he were to receive a commit from Green-Beckham? The answer is enough to make any Mizzou fan and booster as excited as any news. Check out what Scouts, Inc. wrote about Green-Beckham in their profile:

This guy is a hybrid of Julio Jones and Calvin Johnson and what makes Green-Beckham unique from other big wide receivers is he is a flexible athlete with fluid movements and quick-twitch athleticism. He is big, strong, rangy and deceptively quick for his size. Possesses a mammoth wingspan and plays the game like a basketball player on grass (he is actually a very good basketball player, not surprising).

Missouri has churned out incredible talents at tight end and receiver the last few years, and Green-Beckham could easily join those players at the pro level -- guys like Jeremy Maclin, Danario Alexander, Justin Gage and Mel Gray. He would also make them potent on offense for years to come.
