The entire college football world has been wondering where wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham would play his college ball, and the kid known as DGB put an end to the suspense on Wednesday morning.

Green-Beckham announced that he'd be signing his letter of intent to play at Missouri, choosing to stay closer to home.

The other schools in the running for Green-Beckham's services were Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

Obviously, this is a huge signing for Missouri and head coach Gary Pinkel as the school gets ready to join the SEC. You need playmakers to win in the SEC, and the Tigers may have signed the best one available.

Standing at 6-foot-6 and weighing 225 pounds, Green-Beckham is considered the top player in the country by MaxPreps, and has often been compared to Randy Moss thanks to his size, athleticism and skill.

"It's taken 17 years but I've finally found a wide receiver who is as good as Randy Moss," says Tom Lemming. "For years I've said Randy Moss was the best high school player I have seen, and Mr. Beckham has similar skills. He has great size, long arms, a true F.A.T. 100-meter time of 10.5, and superior production. The nation's No. 1 player, he appears to have no weaknesses. He will be the most celebrated prep football player in the country."

No word on whether or not this signing will lead to a giant boost in helicopter rentals.

Got National Titles?
Mizzery has ZERO national titles, ZERO Big 12 Championships, ZERO BCS bowl appearences, and is 13-16 in bowl games.

Playing in the Cotton Bowl or Jerry's World is even numbers, because we all know how the Hawgs will travel. The numbers are equal at those sites. Go to Fay., LR or CS and it's different. The visitors are out-numbered 9 to 1. Big difference.<br />

The reality Mizzery fans seem to want to overlook is that even if, and I do mean if, Mizzery is able to somehow make it to the S.E.C. championship game the title will STAY on the west side of the conference.

Great news for Mizzou football! James Franklin has another top receiver to throw to in next year's premiere SEC season for Mizzou.

He picked a team close to home, but one that is far from worthy of his talents.

Reading these comments only confirmed one thing to me.  The SEC blew it by not having Missouri and Arkansas in the same division.  This is a natural rivalry and personally I’m already starting to hate the Razorbacks like I do the Kansas Jayhawks.  Vanderbuilt and Kentucky don’t do much for me except during basketball season.  That being said, Missouri should have a better chance of going to the SEC Championship game since LSU, Alabama and Auburn will be pounding it out in the SEC West division.  Florida and Georgia are the only teams in the way in the East.
