The old saying "speed kills!" couldn't be used any better when describing's No. 2 ranked player in the nation, Dorial Green-Beckham (6'6", 220) from Hillcrest High School in Springfield, Missouri. 

Dorial can flat-out fly after being clocked at a best time of 4.43 in the forty. 

He is also a very physical receiver who has great size and strength to go with it. 

Green-Beckham benches 300 lbs. and squats nearly 400 lbs.; both are marks that any linebacker or D-lineman would be proud to have.

The top returning wideout in the nation had a banner junior campaign, hauling in 78 passes for over 1,700 yards and 15 scores, averaging nearly 22 yards per catch. 

He's a big target who commands double coverage to even have a slight chance of slowing him down. 

Dorial hasn't picked a final home yet for college, but he did tell PrepStar of the many offers that he has been receiving from top colleges nationwide. 

Heavy in the mix are SEC powers like Alabama, Auburn and Florida along with Florida State, South Carolina and Miami from the ACC.  

BIG 10 schools like Nebraksa, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin are in hot pursuit along with BIG 12 schools such as Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. 

Other schools vying for this prized jewel are UCLA, Notre Dame, USC and Oregon.

Dorial will have plenty of pressure to stay close to home and play for the rising Tiger program, but all bets are off as far as where he will end up on the next level. 

Stay tuned, as Prepstar will bring you the latest developments on star recruits like Dorial Green-Beckham.
