Mario Edwards vs. Dorial Green-Beckham

This is an interesting comparison between two of our F5S follows as the crimsonandcreammachine.com (OU fan site) did a video comparison and then talked about the two prospects.  According to our five ranking services, Green-Beckham holds the slight edge over Edwards for the top spot.  Check out the article here.

DGB To Play in US Army All-American Game

The consensus No. 1 wide receiver recruit in the nation Dorial Green-Beckham will play in the January 7th All-American Game at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio.  That could also very well be the right time and place to announce where he will continue his career.  As mentioned – he is believed to have narrowed his search to five schools: Oklahoma, Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas.  Dorial’s record-breaking career will continue and his decision will be one of the most followed announcements from the entire Class of 2012.  The Springfield News-Leader pointed out the sensitive nature of the recruiting process as Dorial’s younger brother Malachi was wearing a Texas Longhorns t-shirt and was asked to cover it up when it came time to take a family picture.  We will keep a close eye on DGB and his situation as he starts making his official visits to schools.

Dorial Green-Beckham Struggles In Final High School Game

Green-Beckham

This wasn’t the way Dorial Green-Beckham envisioned his shining high school career to end.  In a 49-0 loss to defending State Champion Webb City in Springfield.  DGB was held to just seven catches for 58 yards and the Webb City defense did a nice job making sure he couldn’t get down field and make his patented big plays.  They kept him contained all game and the Hornets had no answer for Jamison Cady and the triple option attack of the Cardinals.  The game was never in doubt.  Cady, a senior at Webb City found the end zone five times in the game with scoring runs of 1, 38, 5 and 7 yards out.  For Green-Beckham, the focus changes now to the recruiting trail.  He will be courted by some of the biggest football programs in the country.  His five finalists are believed to be Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Missouri and Texas.  A decision is expected in the next month or so as he will officially take his five allotted visits to Universities.

Big Visits Upcoming for DGB, Diggs

Dorial Green-Beckham will visit Texas on 11/19.

As their Senior seasons wind down, the recruiting trail gets even hotter for our prospects.  No. 1 recruit Dorial Green-Beckham is scheduled to visit the University of Texas on Nov. 19 when the current #21 team in the Nation takes on #17 Kansas State.  Texas is known for winning over potential recruits on visits.  One sticking point for DGB might be that another one of our follows, Johnathan Gray has committed some time ago and would be an awfully crazy 1-2 punch if the Longhorns can somehow get it done.  For those wondering if DGB will be taking in the Mizzou-Texas game at Columbia this weekend – he will be a little distracted as he and Hillcrest have a big playoff game against No. 1 Webb City at 1:30 PM.  The Tigers play the Longhorns starting at noon.

Another visit that will take place in a few weeks (leaving some time for a playoff run) is Stefon Diggs planning to take in Gainsville, Florida and the Gators.  That visit will take place Nov. 26th when the Gators play host to the heated rival Florida State – another candidate on Diggs’ shortlist.  We will keep an ear out for any rumblings following these visits.

Where They At This Weekend?

Let’s take a quick look at where our ten guys will be this weekend as many are winding down their games seasons and some are entrenched in their State Championship runs…

Dorial Green-Beckham is playing Saturday (11/12) at 1:30 PM against #1 seed Webb City (12-0) in the Class 4A quarterfinals.  Many think this will be the final game for the Nation’s top recruit.  However, as well all know DGB has the ability to take over a game himself.  That said, the Cardinals haven’t even been challenged this season.  DGB has 112 catches for 2,176 yards and 24 TD’s this season so far.

Mario Edwards and his Denton-Ryan squad puts their 10-0 record on the line tomorrow (Friday 11/11) at 7:00 PM vs. Amarillo Caprock (8-2) in the first round of the Texas 4A-Division I playoffs.  While they are expected to win, during the playoffs you NEVER know.
