With each passing day, excitement for the 2011 Oklahoma football season grows. But, along with that, so does skepticism over whether or not five-star recruit Trey Metoyer will be a part of it.

For fans, his qualification requirements can be confusing. For Metoyer, it's simple.

He is taking two classes at Tyler (Texas) Junior College, and said he needs an A in one and a B in the other.

“If I get them, I am on my way up there,” Metoyer said. “Everything is going well. I'm going to class every day and passing my tests and passing my daily grades, so it is looking good.”

But, even with the confidence, his attendance at the beginning of the Sooners' fall camp is not likely.

The second summer session at Tyler Junior College ends on August 11th. Sooners football players report August 3rd and begin fall camp on the 4th.

Do the math and it's clear that Metoyer will miss at good portion of camp.

The Sooners have 10 practices scheduled in that brief time period.

“With me coming in late, I'm going to go in and try to learn plays right away,” Metoyer said. “But I'm confident I will make it.”

And if he can make it to Norman, the athletic wide receiver from Whitehouse (Texas) High School will join an extremely potent offense.

Along with Metoyer, the Sooners return All-American Ryan Broyles, an emerging Kenny Stills and Heisman candidate Landry Jones.

“I'm loving it,” Metoyer said. “The main thing will by trying to make a name for ourselves and get that ring. We got one of the best squads out there.”

But, until his official enrollment at OU, the question of whether he will be part of that squad will still remain.
