Good to Go

Wide receiver Trey Metoyer has been cleared to play by the NCAA, confirmed by multiple sources Thursday afternoon.

"I got the message today that he qualified," Hargrave Coach Troy Davis confirmed to's Kristen Kenney. "I could not be more proud of him. I already spoke to his dad and he said, 'Thank you, we appreciate what you have done.' I can tell you he worked his butt off at the end there. From the football standpoint, I wasn't worried about that, it was his academics, and he buckled down and got it done!

"He has all the tools for the NFL. He just needs to get to OU, get playing time and continue to do well in the classroom."

The news means the five-star receiver and No. 1 ranked receiver in the 2011 class who had to head to Hargrave in the fall before getting cleared, will join the Sooners this spring.

He's set to arrive on campus promptly and join five other early enrollees, including tight ends Taylor McNamara and Brannon Green, cornerback Kass Everett, defensive end Chaz Nelson and defensive tackle Jordan Wade.

Metoyer is one of four wide receivers in a class that also includes Durron Neal, Sterling Shepard (No. 27), and Derrick Woods (listed as No. 15 safety but recruited offensively) as guys expected to sign next week.

He'll have all four years of eligibility and arrive as a freshman.
