Oklahoma football announces another sellout season

Notebook: Justin Brown and Trey Metoyer are ‘playmakers.'
by Jason Kersey and Stephanie Kuzydym Published: August 24, 2012

Stills doesn't seem fazed by having to share the passes from fourth-year starter Landry Jones with newcomers like Justin Brown and Trey Metoyer. He sees it as a benefit.

“It's just added a lot of playmakers for us,” Stills said. “Everybody can make a play. I can do it, Trey can do it, Justin can do it. He has a ton of experience … Trey doesn't have a lot of experience in the stadium yet, but he plays like he does. It's very exciting for us.”


Defensive ends coach Bobby Jack Wright has said his two true freshmen, Michael Onuoha and Charles Tapper, won't redshirt this season.

That makes sense since the two will be needed with David King's changing role and tackle Stacy McGee's indefinite suspension.

But still, the two are very raw and haven't begun to tap their full potential yet. Wright was asked what improvements they need to make.

“Get the laundry list out and we'll go from A to Z,” Wright said. “They need every bit of it. They're true freshmen — pups. They don't know what's coming at them or what hit them. They don't even know after the play is over.”
