New No.1 For Metoyer?

Trey Metoyer took in Aggieland this past Saturday with his current teammate and best friend Quincy Aldridge. The fact that the Aggie coaching staff is still able to catch the eye of young talent after a loss is quite impressive.

Trey Metoyer took in Aggieland this past Saturday with his current teammate and best friend Quincy Aldridge. The fact that the Aggie coaching staff is still able to catch the eye of young talent after a conference loss at home is quite impressive. Metoyer was considered an early Oklahoma lean, but now it seems that tables have turned in the Aggie's favor.

"I can see myself at A&M. It feels like home every time I come up here, even when I was in College Station for their camps and the 7-on-7 tournament this summer. The town is great and you can't beat the gameday atmosphere. I really like all of the coaches and the facilities are amazing."

Runningbacks coach and area recruiter, Randy Jordan, has been recruiting Trey for the past year. They spoke after the game on Saturday along with head coach Mike Sherman.

"Coach Jordan is real down to earth. He told me A&M is place where you can't get into any trouble unless you are looking for it, and he also mentioned the great tutoring services available to the players. This is important to me because I want to major in business and I can't afford any distractions."

Metoyer commented on the different looks and formations of the Aggie offense.

"They throw the rock a lot! I like how the team will line up in a spread, under center, and in a stack. It's hard to not get excited when you see true freshman like EZ out there catching as many balls as he did. The coaches told me I would probably come in and start – that's one reason I really want to come to A&M."

Metoyer is still not ready to end the recruiting process at the moment, but his time table for committing is at the end of the season. He plans on visiting LSU and Arkansas at some point, and would like to get back to Aggieland for the annual Lonestar Shootout on Thanksgiving night.

"Quincy and I want to make it to that game since he is a big Texas fan. It would be fun because he says he wants to play against me in college, and that matchup could possibly be a rivalry game down the road for the both of us. Quincy likes A&M don't get me wrong, but right now I think he likes Texas as his number 1."

The 6-foot-2, 190 pound Metoyer would be a tremendous get for the Aggies in 2011. Trey loves it at A&M and he received the royal treatment while on campus with the attention that was given to him. It wouldn't be out of the question to see Metoyer make his decision before the season ends.

"If I ended the process today, I would pick A&M. I would say there is a 9 out of 10 chance I will choose A&M"
