Metoyer Planning Bedlam Visit

Recruiting coverage at Sooner Illustrated is still going as we look to bring fans the latest in Oklahoma recruiting news. Today we talked recruiting with a hot junior wide receiver Trey Metoyer from Whitehouse, Texas.

Of the junior wide receiver corp coming out of the Lone Star State, Trey Metoyer from Whitehouse (TX) may be one of the few who stand out amongst the rest. 

While there is plenty more months that Metoyer will be involved with the recruiting process, things have already starting moving swiftly mid way through his junior campaign.

"I already have offers from Texas Tech, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Arkansas," Metoyer said. "Texas said that will look to offer me in February."

With the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Metoyer, he will make the rounds. He has already made trips to College Station to check out the Aggies and LSU and Arkansas are said to be in the rotation as well.

And though he is nowhere near ready to shut things down, he did tell Scout.com about a few programs that have caught his attention.

"I would say that Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas stand out a lot to me," Metoyer said. "With Arkansas, they have a great passing game and I feel I could put up big numbers there. Oklahoma is a nice program that I feel I could shine as well. Texas is a great football program and I talk to the coaches quite a bit. 

"I like Texas."

But no early leaders for Metoyer as he expressed out he felt about the programs that stand out for him. For one, he elaborated a little more, maybe because the coaches were present at his last football game.

"(Assistant) Coach (Jay) Norvell came by my last game. I heard that he left at halftime, but I had the chance to talk with," Metoyer said.

He elaborated on the phone call between he and Norvell.

"He (Norvell) told me that he liked what he saw in my game. He said that he has watched a lot of the senior wide receivers and that I am playing on that level," Metoyer said. "He wants to bring in receivers who have good hand/eye coordination. He said that I have a lot of talent and once I add some size that I would fit in well at Oklahoma."

His junior season at Whitehouse is complete, but with the numbers he put up, it's no wonder schools across the country are trying to get in on him for the 2011 class. Metoyer had 77 receptions for 1,218 yards and 15 touchdowns. 

This season, Metoyer has caught some Sooner ball on television. He has noticed a few things that could be beneficial for him.

"There are a lot of talented wide receivers there at Oklahoma, but there seems like there is some opportunity to play there," Metoyer said. "I like the way they throw the ball around and I can't wait to check it out."

With that said, Metoyer informed Sooners Illustrated that he will be in Norman for the Bedlam match up against in-state rival Oklahoma State.

"I hear that game is crazy," Metoyer said. "I'm ready to go and check it out."
