Missouri’s Gary Pinkel arrived via helicopter. Bob Stoops of Oklahoma, Mack Brown of Texas and Bobby Petrino of Arkansas will all be stopping by Springfield, Missouri this week to visit his house. If you wondered the lengths that a college coach will go to sway a teenager’s mind, the frenzy surrounding the top recruit in the country in Dorial Green-Beckham gives you a bit of insight.
The Austin American-Stateman is reporting today that all three coaches have visits within the next day or two.
“Today, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops is scheduled for his in-school/in-home visit in Springfield, Mo., with Green-Beckham, the country’s No. 1-rated high school wide receiver. Arkansas’ Bobby Petrino is scheduled to do the same. Texas head coach Mack Brown and receivers coach Darrell Wyatt also are expected in Springfield, probably Wednesday.”
The reason everyone is going after him is because DGB is the best wide receiver in the country right now and he’s also the record holder for most receiving yards in a high school career with well over 6,000.
