Dorial Green-Beckham Takes Texas Longhorns Out Of Equation Leaving Missouri, Arkansas And Oklahoma In Play

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.
