08:19 AM ET 01.31 | According to a report Monday morning, Dorial Green-Beckham will choose Missouri. However, Green-Beckham's adoptive father and coach, John Beckham, told the Tulsa World in a telephone interview Monday evening that his son had not made up his mind, committed anywhere or even eliminated any of his choices. "That has not taken place," Beckham said. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound Green-Beckham, a senior wide receiver at Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Mo., will announce his decision live on ESPNU at 9 a.m. Wednesday. Most recruiting projections put him at either Arkansas or Missouri, though the World's source said Monday that Green-Beckham was so impressed by his visit to Mizzou over the weekend that he'll choose the Tigers.

I'm ready for this drama to be over. Pinkel's helicopter at his high school, Petrino OOPS bumping into him, etc ... I wonder if this kid's life will ever get back to normal.

I hope he comes to Arky, but the world will not stop spinning if he goes to Mizzou. Arky will have WR's, TE's and a QB to get them the ball as long as Pertino is here.

No doubt you have to recruit quality players, but player development adds a lot, also. BP has taken classes in the bottom 1/3 of the SEC in rankings and coached them to top 1/3 finishes in the SEC the last couple of years....we'll be fine.

GOOD LUCK to the kid wherever he goes & I hope he can handle the fame and expectations.

Oklahoma. Heard he wants to play with LJ one year and then watch BB run the next two.

LOL

Good post. I agree. Life will go on either way. I wish him the best wherever he goes.

QUOTE(#5):

he may end up there but anyone who predicts anything right now has no clue. Kind of like saying he's not going to Arky because they have recently added a couple more WR's and now sit at around 6 in the class so that says he is not going there.

Beckham should have no competition, he is that good, from what I have seen. And he will do well in CFB if he does not lose drive to be the best player he can be.....

Looks like it is between Arky and Mizzou.... but what the heck do I know......;)
