Wide receiver Trey Metoyer was the most highly-touted member of Oklahoma's last recruiting class, but it looks as though Sooners fans will have to wait until 2012 to see him in an Oklahoma uniform. A few weeks ago there were questions about whether or not Metoyer would be academically eligible to play football this fall, and on Monday afternoon we got that answer.
He won't be.
According to SoonerScoop.com, Metoyer confirmed that he will not be eligible to play for Oklahoma this season. Instead he plans to attend Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia this fall where he'll get his grades in order, and play football as well. Metoyer fully intends on being back in Norman this January.
As for the impact this could have on the Oklahoma offense in 2011, I wouldn't expect it to be much of one. Yes, Metoyer is a good player who could have contributed this season, but anything he gave to the team in 2011 would have been a bonus. The Sooners already have a deep receiving corps led by Ryan Broyles, Kenny Stills and Trey Franks.
