Dorial Green-Beckham: Bold Predictions for His Freshman Year at Missouri

The Missouri Tigers landed one of the biggest recruits in the history of their football program on Wednesday morning.

His name is Dorial Green-Beckham.

The Springfield, Mo., native was rated as the No. 1 player in the nation by many different recruiting services.

Here are a few bold predictions for his freshman year at the University of Missouri this fall:

1. He will score at least 10 touchdowns.

DGB will likely be a touchdown machine at the collegiate level, considering the elite talent that he possesses at the wide receiver position.

In his four years of high school, Green-Beckham scored 75 TDs during that span, including 24 in his senior campaign.

At this point, 10 touchdowns should almost be a lock for DGB's freshman year in college.

2. He will have more than 1,200 receiving yards.

In high school, Green-Beckham racked up more than 6,300 receiving yards for Hillcrest High.

Although he might not average 1,500 receiving yards per season in college, it is possible.

However, I think getting 1,200-plus receiving yards in his freshman season at Missouri is more obtainable at this point.

3. He will make several jaw-dropping receptions.

Green-Beckham was known for making great catches in his prep days.

Now, the rest of the country will be able to watch him make those plays at the collegiate level next season.

I expect him to have at least one or two catches that will be featured on SportsCenter's "Top 10" at some point in the season.

4. He will be a freshman All-American.

If my first two predictions come true for DGB this season, then this prediction should easily fall into place.

Green-Beckham has all the talent in the world, and many have compared him to former Alabama wideout Julio Jones as far as what impact he could have as a freshman in college.

If he plays anything like Jones did when he played for the Crimson Tide, Green-Beckham will be one of the best receivers to ever play at the University of Missouri.
