Meeting the team: offensive player No. 20

NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated is nearing the end of the offensive side, presenting day 20 now.

Player: Trey Metoyer

Hometown: Whitehouse, Texas

Class: Freshman

Height & Weight: 6-foot-2, 198 pounds

Likely position on fall depth chart: Starting wide receiver

The rundown: By now, most everyone knows Metoyer's story. He was set to join the Sooners in 2011, but some issues took place with his qualification and he had to go the prep school route. From there, he spent a semester at Hargrave Military Academy before setting foot on campus mid-year at OU. The former five-star and No. 1 receiver in the country dazzled during spring ball and showed why he's a potential breakout player on this squad in 2012. Metoyer tallied a team-leading six catches for 72 yards in the Red-White spring game and showcased his monstrous hands in the process. Because of all that, he's put himself in position to make a big impact this fall.

Expectations for 2012: It's very safe to say Metoyer's going to make as big of a splash in his first year as Kenny Stills did his in first rodeo, and likely even more so. It's not out of the question that Metoyer could compete for All-Big 12 honors and potentially Newcomer of the Year. In fact, if players from teams joining the conference (i.e. West Virginia's Geno Smith) cannot win the award, he's almost the surefire candidate to do so. He's going to be in the starting rotation all year just because he's game ready for this level. Sooner fans should be very excited to see this guy take the field.
