WR Trey Metoyer’s Suspension Won’t Affect Oklahoma Sooners

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Well this is something we don’t see very often. According to multiple reports, Oklahoma Sooners‘ sophomore wideout Trey Metoyer has been charged with two felony counts of indecent exposure and has been suspended from the team indefinitely.

Metoyer had not been with the team since prior to the TCU game and had only two catches on the season.

According to the affidavit, the Oklahoma wide receiver exposed himself to the first female victim on August 29, in a Norman parking lot. He approached a second victim on September 17 asking for a pen. When the woman returned with the pen, Metoyer exposed himself to her. Metoyer also made lewd gestures during both incidents.

These charges carry up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine if Metoyer is convicted.

Metoyer’s departure from the team won’t affect Oklahoma’s depth too much this season, as he had only totaled 18 receiving yards for Oklahoma before being separated from the team. Currently, Oklahoma has five receivers with over 100 receiving yards, and three running backs for the Sooners also have more receptions than Metoyer. He had not appeared in the last three games for Oklahoma.

However, this is a blow to the future of the Sooners program, as Metoyer was a five-star recruit in 2011 and was expected to become a major contributor down the road.

Sooners head coach Bob Stoops released a statement on the issue, saying, “I do not anticipate that [Metoyer] will return to the program in the future.”

Just another story of a kid wasting his talent.
