Metoyer Talks Texas

The Texas Longhorns held their second mini-camp on Sunday playing host to many of the top 2011 prospects in the state. One of the cream of the crop prospects in Austin was Whitehouse receiver Trey Metoyer. Burnt Orange Beat spoke with Metoyer about his trip to the Capital City and the camp.

Whitehouse receiver Trey Metoyer is one of the prospects that the top programs in the region have already zeroed in on in the 2011 class. With the heavy attention comes the camp invites and Metoyer and his teammates have taken full advantage taking in a number of one-day camps in the last couple of weeks.

On Sunday, the 6-2, 186-pound show stopping playmaker attended the Texas Longhorns camp and came away impressed.

"I was impressed with Texas," Metoyer said, who was timed at 4.58 in the forty. "They say Texas is a big place, but I didn't know how big. We got to walk on the new field with the music playing. I got my picture made with Coach Brown. It was fun. They (Texas coaches) said I did well. They told me to keep the arms pumping during my routes more. Coach Brown was telling me I was doing well. They had come by the school twice in the spring and I know they are interested."

Sunday's camp was the third in eight days for the top-10 prospect in the state in the 2011 class. Metoyer says all three of the camps (at Texas A&M and Oklahoma State in Athens, TX) were both impressive and beneficial.

"The first camp I went to was A&M (June 6). It was fun there and they have a great facility. They taught me how to stop on a dime, make a cut and separate better. They had a quarterback (Jamiel Showers) already committed throwing me passes. He was pretty good. I went to Oklahoma State the following day in Athens. Most of their coaches were there. I did well there. They did a lot of one on one's. We ran a lot of fade routes. We also did a lot of drills. They put everybody in certain groups and I was in one of the groups they watched. I liked all of the camps," Metoyer said.

Metoyer, who has been told he will be offered on September 1 by Oklahoma and A&M, said he's unsure of future camp plans. On Saturday, the Whitehouse 7-on-7 team will be trying to qualify for the state tournament in July.

"I think that was our last camp. We might hit one or two more, but I'm not sure. We are just working out now and have a 7-on-7 league on Monday nights (Lindale tonight). This weekend we have a 7-on-7 tournament in Tyler that will be our chance to qualify for state," Metoyer said.

Fellow junior teammates Quincy Aldridge (S/WR), quarterback Preston Conder and defensive tackle Joey Gautney joined Metoyer at the Texas camp on Sunday.
