Missouri fans know that this weekend is likely pivotal for any chance they have at securing the services of wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. The top recruit available in the country is going to make his choice known on National Signing Day on February 1 along with other elite athletes and he’s down to just a handful of teams on his list. Missouri is fighting with other top programs like Oklahoma and Arkansas, so it’s clear this weekend’s visit is a major moment for DGB’s recruitment.
That said, Max Olson of ESPN says things are not going to hot. He writes via Twitter, “According to some Mizzou fans on Twitter, DGB’s visit hasn’t gone as planned. They say he got carded, couldn’t get into Harpo’s last night.”
At this point, the red carpet is being rolled out by everyone. Mack Brown and Bob Stoops made visits to his Springfield, Mo. home this week. Gary Pinkel arrived via helicopter to his high school. Everything has to go right. To hear something is not going well on his visit feels like a death knell for Mizzou fans anxious to see what Henry Josey and James Franklin could do with DGB alongside them on the field.
That said, the weekend is not over and reports will continue to emerge about the visit. Here’s hoping things turn around today.
