Oklahoma is finally getting its five-star wide receiver.

For all the success the Sooners have had in the passing game in the Bob Stoops era, they had never brought in a receiver who had earned the highest rating from Rivals.

That changes with Trey Metoyer, even if it is a year later than expected.

Metoyer was originally part of the 2011 signing class, but he didn't qualify academically, so he spent last year at Hargrave Military Academy, a prep school in Virginia.

He had some injury troubles at Hargrave (though nothing that is still a concern) and had to wait until more than a week into the spring semester to get cleared by the NCAA. But Metoyer is finally on campus.

He was one of the most prolific wide receivers in Texas high school history, with 52 career touchdowns and 259 receptions.

He's also not lacking in confidence, which is a plus for a first-line receiver.

“As a receiver, you have to have that swag,” Metoyer said after committing to the Sooners last year. “Ask any great receiver. The swag, you have to have. That's me and that's what I was taught. To go out there with an attitude, that no one can hold you. If you come out there all scared, you've lost already. Not to say I'm cocky. I'm not. But you get on the field, your mind has got to change.”
