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.

@SC Dynasty-  Did Kiffin's tears about losing DGB land in your warm oatmeal w milk this morning?  Guess he called the Beckham's about to cry- look it up, it's a common known fact.  I think we'd challenge you guys pretty good on the football field and SMASH you at basketball- remember when we did this with Mayo on your team?   A USC fan bringing up basketball, what a joke.

Does anybody follow MU football>?  Sounds like a contradiction of terms!  Zero Nat Titles, zero Big 12 titles, zero Heisman winners.
What an impressive resume.  Check the schedule for next year and tell me how many wins are on it in the SEC!
I see three so far. (maybe) ASU, UK and Vandy.  There are still three open dates for junior college teams that Pinkel can beat.
They may get bowl eligible if they play well!!!!  LMAO!!!

FIGHT ON!

PS  Good luck getting tickets to home games MU fans. Those SEC fans will buy 20-30,000 to every game!!!!

PSS Still NO FINAL FOURS in over a hundred years either! LMAO!

When it is all said and done, this kid will wish he picked WVU.  Every receiver....ANY receiver will flourish the most inthe Holgerson offense.
