SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, one of the top prep recruits in the country, has signed a national letter of intent to play at Missouri.
The Springfield (Hillcrest), Mo., player says he wanted to remain close to home and that the Tigers -- who are entering the Southeastern Conference next season -- are the perfect fit. Green-Beckham says he built a close relationship with the Missouri coaches during the recruiting process and that influenced his decision.
The 6-foot-6, 225-pound Green-Beckham says he slept on his decision Monday night after weekend visit to Columbia, Mo., and he still felt the Tigers were the right decision on Tuesday.
