Report: Dorial Green-Beckham Has Informed Texas Staff He Won't Be A Horn

[Update]: Gerry Hamilton reporting that it's down to Arkansas and Missouri ($). --GoBR--

There hasn't been any positive buzz surrounding Texas and Dorial Green-Beckham for days, even in the direct aftermath of Mack Brown's visit to Hillcrest High School last Thursday for a sit-down with DGB and his parents.

On Tuesday evening, Orangebloods publisher Geoff Ketchum further dashed whatever optimists were still holding out hope in the Texas fanbase when he revealed on Twitter that multiple sources close to the Texas program have indicated that the Beckhams or DGB himself reached out to the Longhorn staff to inform them that the star wideout will not be signing with Texas on National Signing Day Wednesday.

The report from Ketchum jives with other news from other Texas services that essentially all say the same thing -- if Texas hasn't officially been eliminated, the staff no longer feels much, if any, confidence about landing DGB.

At this time, the prohibitive favorite seems to be Missouri, thought to have surged into the lead following a weekend visit, while Arkansas has seemingly faded after the Beckhams failed to make the trip to Fayetteville with their adopted son.

It was thought for some time that the announcement ceremony actually would hold more drama than most, but if the news coming out of various programs is correct, it looks like Green-Beckham will stay in Missouri.
