Trey Metoyer’s road to Oklahoma was pocked with academic challenges, a semester in military school and a lot of doubters.

His departure was much worse.

Metoyer was a 5-star wide receiver — the first ever to sign with the Sooners — when he came out of Whitehouse, TX. Rated by some as the No. 1 wideout in the country, Metoyer was a U.S. Army All-American, a Parade All-American, and the No. 12 player in the nation, according to Rivals.

Metoyer’s plan was to spend three years in Norman learning from Jay Norvell, starring in Josh Heupel’s offense, and then move on to the NFL.

Instead, Metoyer didn’t make the grade in 2011 and had to detour to Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, VA. He played football there, but also lived the military school life — dorm, class, football, and little else. That allowed him to get his grades together as Norvell continued his fervent recruiting of Metoyer.

He enrolled at OU in the spring of 2012, starred in the spring game and then got plenty of action that fall, making four starts, playing in eight games and catching 17 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown.
