Top Junior WR Talks Bedlam

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 junior wide receiver Trey Metoyer from Whitehouse, Texas after he attended the annual Bedlam Game.

This past weekend in Oklahoma, a large number of athletes were in town for the annual Bedlam game against in-state rival Oklahoma State. Good thing for the Sooners was that in the end it resulted in a good showing for all attendees.

After a slow start early on, Oklahoma made a statement with a 27-0 victory Saturday afternoon. The Sooners had 14 official visitors in town that weekend, but there were a handful of junior recruits as well. One of which was wide receiver Trey Metoyer from Whitehouse, TX.

"This game was crazy. There were a lot of people in the stands," Metoyer said. "They (Oklahoma) blew them (Oklahoma State) out, but the game was exciting."

It's safe to say that he 6-foot-2, 185-pound Metoyer is a primary target for Oklahoma for the class of 2010. Of course he already holds an offer from the Sooners, as well as Texas Tech, Nebraska, Texas A&M and Arkansas, with heavy interest coming from Texas as well.

And after the Oklahoma coaches came to see him during one of the games this past season, the interest level picked up even more.

"When I went down there, the coaches treated me right. I even got some time with coach (Bob) Stoops," Metoyer said. "I feel like they really want me. They came down to see me in the Longview game and said that I can get some playing time as a freshman."

Well, maybe that statement, along with the shutout of Oklahoma State brought Metoyer to this conclusion.

"Oklahoma ranks No. 1 with me right now. The idea of me being able to play right away is good for me," Metoyer said. "When I look at the receivers who are leaving, it looks like there could be a spot for me by the time I get there."

In his junior campaign, Metoyer had 77 receptions for 1,218 yards and 15 touchdowns. He stated that the Sooner coaches have said that they will come down for spring practice and check in on him, plus he plans to attend one of the Sooner football as well.
