NORMAN — National Signing Day isn’t until Wednesday, but Oklahoma’s class received a boost it’s been waiting nearly a year to receive.
The NCAA clearinghouse has approved wide receiver Trey Metoyer to enroll in school. There was no official announcement from OU on Thursday, but a source close to the program did confirm Metoyer has been cleared. Metoyer’s father, David, also confirmed the NCAA decision to several media outlets.
Metoyer, a Rivals.com five-star recruit, originally signed with the Sooners last February. The 6-2, 200-pound native of Whitehouse, Texas, was considered the No. 1 prep receiver in the class of 2011. However, he wasn’t cleared to the enroll in the school.
Metoyer attended Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy in the fall and was able to gain acceptance to OU.
He hasn’t enrolled at OU for the spring semester, but he’s expected to do so on Monday. Metoyer will be able to participate in spring practice and will have four years of eligibility.
Metoyer is expected to join freshman tight end Taylor McNamara, along with junior college transfers: defensive back Kasseim Everett, tight end Brannon Green and defensive end Chaz Nelson, on the roster for the spring.
