Receiver Trey Metoyer maintains a good attitude while learning behind veterans
He started the season’s first few games, but became primarily a reserve after the NCAA granted transfer Jalen Saunders immediate eligibility.
Another transfer, senior Justin Brown, has also taken playing time that might’ve otherwise been Metoyer’s.
But co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell, who coaches receivers, said Metoyer has kept a good attitude through the season.
“Everybody realizes that if we don’t have those two kids that are eligible, his world is different right now,” Norvell said. “But we do have experienced guys, and that’s the biggest reality of the whole situation for Trey, and that he can learn from that is important.”
Metoyer was a five-star recruit from Whitehouse, Texas, and originally part of OU’s 2011 signing class. But academic issues forced him to spend a semester last fall at Virginia’s Hargrave Military Academy.
He enrolled at OU in January and shined in the Sooners’ spring game.
