COLUMBIA -- The nation's best high school football wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, known as DGB, is causing a lot of buzz around the Mizzou campus. The Springfield Hillcrest senior is on an official visit to Missouri this weekend after listing the Tigers as one of five finalists.

DGB set a national record with more than 6,300 career receiving yards. This season he caught 119 passes for more than 2,220 yards and 24 touchdowns.

"They've been there since I've been getting recruited since my freshman year so they've been around a whole lot. They've stood out more than any other school just because they've been there and they noticed me ahead of time before all these other schools because they're closest to the area," Green-Beckham said.

Mizzou is the final visit DGB will make before announcing his choice on Wednesday, February 1 on National Signing Day. He visited future Southeastern Conference opponent Arkansas on Friday, January 20.
