Coach denies Green-Beckham to Missouri report

UPDATE: CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd spoke with John Beckham, Green-Beckham's high school coach and adoptive father, who denied the Tulsa World report.



The nation's No. 1 recruit, Dorial Green-Beckham, has the college football world scratching their heads wondering where the 6-foot-6, 225 pound wide receiver will sign on National Signing Day?

The standout from Springfield, Mo. has kept his decision-making process under wraps throughout his recruitment, only recently narrowing his list to Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. Which school will add Green-Beckham to their 2012 recruiting class has been a matter of intense debate among recruiting experts for weeks.

A report from Tulsa World reporter John Hoover on Monday morning suggested that Missouri has moved into the top spot and will be Green-Beckham's selection on Wednesday.

"Extremely good source just told me Dorial Green-Beckham to Missouri," Hoover reported from his Twitter account. "Influential visit last weekend. Things can change but I trust him."

The combination of Green-Beckham's potential and the uncertainty regarding his decision will likely lead to plenty of "sourced" reports over the next two days, but one certainly is worth some attention. To catch up on Green-Beckaham's recruitment and learn more about the school's hoping to receive his commitment, check out Stephen Spiewak's profile from Monday at MaxPreps.com.

Sigh....Mack only has the most wins, most 10 wins, most bowl wins, a heisman trophy winner, most nfl players, highest increase in team value, most BCS wins in league, most league wins, highest winning percentage in league, 2 defensive players of the year, COy, national title, most wins versus #1 teams during his tenure.

He beat the living snot out of the other big programs in his league A&M and Nebraska.  He went .500 vs Oklahoma which is pretty impressive because OU goes about .950 vs every other team not named Texas.  OU is an amazing program.   I don't see anyone else even remotely competitive with Oklahoma over the years.

And he built a new stadium, a new TV network, and the largest pile of cash ever thanks to his success.

I guess that is underachieving??

This kid would be so smart to think about Michigan and getting to wear that No.1 on his back. With this last class, adding this guy would lock-up a national title run. Not to mention that Michigan fraternity and that degree....  think about it kid!

Texas is overachieving? And how many NC wins and appearances does Texas have compared to Ark and Mizzou? Mack has also the most 
players on an NFL roster than any other FBS school in the country. If DGB wants to get a NC he is more likely to do that at Texas than these other two programs.

Look at Florida, Florida St., and Georgias recruiting classes the last 5 years. They are comparable with Floridas being just as good and look what they are doing.

oh yeah, i'm sure DGB is reading your post right now and saying to himself, "You know, that cowpoke dude is right!  Geez, I wish somebody would have posted that they thought I could help them before now!  And Texas does have that great QB . . . you know . . . whatshisname, yeah that dude."

Texas is #1 at both recruiting and at futility.  They take more elite talent into mediocrity than anybody in the history of college football.  Seriously, that coaching staff has under-performed consistently.  That's gotta hit a nerve with many . . .

Texas is the best at one thing:  Taking the best of recruiting classes and losing with them.  It is pathetic to see so much talent wasted under the current coaching regime.  The 2011 season is the gold medal for incompetence as far underachieving on the football field.  Seriously, doesn't that get to be a tender nerve after awhile?

On the contrary, Coach Petrino is a family man first, then a coach.  He is a competitor and definitely has an alter ego when he's coaching a game.  The only entity he ever was not loyal to was the Atlanta Falcons.  Everybody got upset because he played it by his rules, not that of the owner/GM.  Funny how they can fire a coach mid-season, but heaven forbid a coach up and leave mid-season.  All I know is it has been the best scenario for Arkansas.  CBP has won more games in each of his successive years; something the Mizzou or a lot of other schools can't say.  He's a great coach regardless of what anybody might think.  He plays and prostyle offense and everybody who plays under him, works harder and is more successful because of it.  Everybody can just be glad he didn't get the in-home visit because of the "bump".  Probably could have gone anyway, but because he's not a sleezey, untrustworthy backstabber, he stayed away.  He did what was felt to be in the best interest of all those involved.  Why risk losing DGB, who obviously wants to be a Hog, by going on the visit.
