As national signing day approaches on Feb. 1, Brandon Chatmon is breaking down every commitment and signee in the Sooners' 2012 recruiting class. View all of our profiles here.
Name: Trey Metoyer
Height, Weight: 6-foot-2, 195 pounds
Hometown/School: Whitehouse, Texas/Hargrave Military (Va.)
Committed: March 12, 2010
Scout grade: 81. Four-star prospect.
Scout rankings: NR (Prep school)
Picked OU over: Arkansas, LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Nebraska.
State of the position: Kenny Stills, Trey Franks and Kameel Jackson are the main receivers returning but OU badly needs difference makers at receiver. The Sooners final three games without Ryan Broyles showed how badly they could use playmaking receivers.
Pros: “The more you watch this guy the better he gets. Given Metoyer's size, strength, speed and playmaking ability he has all the physical attributes you would like in today's wide receiver. He is a player physically capable of taking over a game and he makes plays in all three phases of the passing game.” - ESPN analyst
Cons: “He is not always the smoothest receiver-- will show some tightness in the hips at times, but he is strong and very difficult to handle one-on-one in the open field even if he does not make you miss you still have to tackle him.” - ESPN analyst
Similar to/potential role: Kenny Stills. Metoyer could play a similar role to Stills as an outside receiver who can stretch defenses and also get opportunities to make plays after the catch.
Expected impact: 2012. Another talented receiver who should force himself onto the field. Metoyer has good size and speed and will have spring football to transition into the offense.
