Whitehouse wide receiver and Oklahoma signee Trey Metoyer is currently enrolled at Tyler Junior College to qualify academically to OU for the fall semester, his father, David, confirmed Wednesday.
Metoyer is taking two classes this summer in an effort to boost his grade point average and be able to move to Norman, Okla., next month.
TJC football coach Danny Palmer said while he is enrolled, Trey Metoyer is working out at the Apaches’ facilities. Palmer also said he expects Metoyer to be at OU soon after his classes are completed.
“I guess we’ll have to wait and see if that happens,” Palmer said. “He’s a great kid to be around. But I very well expect him to be at OU.”
Metoyer, ranked No. 12 on the Rivals.com top 100 recruits list for 2011, is one of the most decorated wide receivers in Texas high school football history.
His 259 receptions are second all-time, and he is third all-time in career receiving touchdowns with 52. He was named an All-American by PARADE Magazine and RivalsHigh.com, played in the U.S. Army Bowl and was the offensive player of the year on the Tyler Morning Telegraph All-East Texas team.
