Dorial Green-Beckham Might Choose Arkansas Razorbacks And Bobby Petrino Over Missouri Tigers This Weekend

For now, the reports say it’s down to the last two — a classic recruiting between two schools who will now be SEC rivals: Missouri and Arkansas. The Tigers and Razorbacks are both in on the top recruit in the nation in Dorial Green-Beckham and the elite wide receiver would instantly provide a brilliant spark for either club. That said, one school might hold the upper hand heading into this weekend.

“A lot can be determined this weekend, as Green-Beckham is expected to take an official visit to Arkansas,” writes Damon Sayles of ESPN. "This will be only his second official visit – Texas was the first in November – and it is known that the Razorbacks are a fan favorite to Green-Beckham’s younger brother, Darnell.

"With Arkansas, it’s the atmosphere. It’s football," Green-Beckham said about the Razorbacks during the week of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio. "Everybody likes to be around football there. It’s kind of like Dallas with the Cowboys. The whole atmosphere is unbelievable."

The Missouri Tigers have made their case known and have been recruiting DGB hard for some time. A decision should be coming soon enough.
