Who will be OU's top receiver next fall?
Mike Baldwin, OU beat writer: Trey Metoyer. That's saying a lot for a player who hasn't played a game. Kenny Stills, now a junior, started as a freshman and set freshmen receiving records, but he dropped a couple more passes in the spring game. Metoyer, bigger and stronger, caught everything within arm's length. Metoyer will break Stills' freshmen records.
Jenni Carlson, columnist: Saturday convinced me that Metoyer can be a big-time receiver, but what about chemistry with Landry Jones? We have no idea about that since the two didn't play together at all during the spring game.
Jason Kersey, OU beat writer: I'm not ready to say Trey Metoyer is better than Stills based on one scrimmage. Stills has shown big-play ability in actual games, and I think he will develop into the Sooners' go-to guy with Ryan Broyles graduated.
Carlson: Stills has shown he can be big time, but his drops are troublesome. If Jones and Metoyer build chemistry, Metoyer will be the guy by midseason. I mean, we know how much Jones likes going to on a dependable go-to guy, don't we?
Baldwin: The Sooners need Stills to be the dependable big-play second option he was to Ryan Broyles. This time, he can play that role with the ultra talented Trey Metoyer. Similar to fullback Trey Millard two years ago, Metoyer has a plays-and-acts-older-than-a-freshman quality that will help him enjoy immediate success.
Kersey: Until we see Metoyer in a real game situation, I don't think we can consider him the best receiver on the team. Stills, like any player with that much talent, will improve with time. By admitting his failures, he has shown his continuing mental maturity, and I think he will show a similar on-field growth.
