Dorial Green-Beckham Commits To Missouri: Mizzou Signs Top 2012 Recruit

Dorial Green-Beckham, 2012's consensus No. 1 top prospect, gave Missouri football a National Signing Day coup by committing to the Tigers over Arkansas, among other schools, ahead of Mizzou's first season in SEC play. The Springfield, Missouri native is 6'6" and 220 pounds and runs like a wide receiver, which is most of what you need to know about him.

As a high school senior he caught 119 balls for 2223 yards and 24 touchdowns. This hilarious Rivals article has one analyst describing him as every kind of wide receiver in sequence, suggesting he's "a natural red-zone threat," a "possession guy who can move the chains and make tough catches over the middle and along the sidelines," and, finally, also has "that deep threat ability." In case you were wondering, that is every part of a football field.

Rock M Nation is predictably excited about their prize catch; if you want to know just how excited, I can only tell you that there is an animated GIF of Ken from Street Fighter II performing a shoryuken involved, multiple MIZ-DGB chants, several Ric Flair woos, at least one puppy jumping on a backyard trampoline, and at least as much Arkansas hate as there is Mizzou love going on in this thread.

So maybe check that out, is what I'm saying.
