Metoyer Verdict Is In

Sooners Illustrated finally got word from Metoyer himself if he will be getting to Norman before the season starts. Check inside to see what his answer was.

It's been long awaited and one of the bigger recruiting dilemmas of head coach, Bob Stoops, tenure at Oklahoma but the verdict has been reached on Trey Metoyer. After going the juco route this summer to take the classes he needed, Metoyer took care of business on his end of the deal and made the grades he needed. It was then time for him to wait and see if he would be approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse to get to Norman before the 2011 season got underway.

Metoyer's arrival to Oklahoma will be put on hold for a semester as he has enrolled in Hargrave Military Academy due to his former program not granting him the approval he needed.

"I'll be there in January," Metoyer said about getting to Oklahoma. "Whitehouse didn't sign me off."

Obviously with Metoyer going to Hargrave, programs will definitely begin to call him again and see if they can sway him. Metoyer had this to say when asked if he was still one hundred percent sure he would be coming to Norman in January.

"Yes," Metoyer replied.

So even though it will be a little bit longer before Metoyer arrives in Norman it is a situation that may end up being better for both sides considering the Sooners have plenty of talent at receiver this year and will lose Ryan Broyles and DeJuan Miller after this season. It will also give Metoyer the chance to work on his grades even more and to learn the offense in spring ball and go through summer workouts helping him to become more prepared once he dons the Crimson and Cream come August of 2012.
