Former No. 1 overall college football recruit Dorial Green-Beckham continued to tarnish his legacy. Green-Beckham was previously arrested on drug possession back in December of 2018 and had his sentencing hearing today.
Reported by OzarksFirst.com, the former Missouri standout was found guilty of “possessing a controlled substance except 35 grams or less of marijuana/synthetic cannabinoid and resisting arrest.” The judge sided with the prosecution and deemed that the appropriate repercussion that Green-Beckham will serve is 90 days in jail.
This isn’t the first time Green-Beckham has run into trouble with the law. In 2017, the former wide receiver was charged with a DWI where he was sentenced to “two years of unsupervised probation”; not to mention the previous assault allegations he was charged with that led to the former All-American’s dismissal from the Missouri football program.
Green-Beckham’s receiver talents were utilized for two seasons at Missouri before he was dismissed. He then went on to transfer to Oklahoma but failed to play a snap there. In 2015, he was a second-round pick in the NFL draft. But, his tenure in the league didn’t last long since he was waived by the Eagles in 2017.
Green-Beckham was the No. 1 recruit in the 2012 class, according to Rivals.com. It’s always a sad day to see a players career wasted especially when the prospect is as talented as Green-Beckham. But now and most likely forever Green-Beckham’s career will always be characterized by “what if.”
