SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Dorial Green-Beckham of Hillcrest High School spent this week getting set for a big national stage on Saturday: the Army All-American Bowl. The football star from Springfield is getting plenty of national attention.
Ninety of the best football high schoolers in the nation are here. They were chosen for the game from 400 nominees by Rivals.com and All American Sports. Number one on their list is DGB.
“He was the one guy I wanted to see. He’ll be part of the offense on Saturday; the quarterback will throw it up and see what he can do,” said Mike Farrell, a recruit analyst for Rivals.com.
DGB’s speed, size, and physicality makes him the top recruit in the nation among high school seniors. Green-Beckham enters the game fresh off being named the nation’s offensive player of the year by USA Today. With a national record of 6,447 yards receiving, many schools want him. Farrell says it’s down to – alphabetically -- Alabama, Arkansas, Mizzou, Oklahoma, and Texas.
