NORMAN, Oklahoma – Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said Monday that incoming freshman receiver Trey Metoyer will not be academically eligible and cannot join the Sooners this semester.

The 6-foot-2-inch Metoyer was ranked by Rivals.com as the second best wide receiver in the 2011 class and the No. 12 overall recruit in the nation, making him the highest-rated recruit in OU's freshman class.

Because he failed to meet OU's academic requirements, he will instead spend the fall semester at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. He will have the opportunity to transfer to OU in January if he raises his grades.

Stoops said he expects Metoyer to play football at Hargrave, but does not think that will cost Metoyer a year of college eligibility.
