Overall, Tennessee’s recruiting may have slipped some in the 2017, but the Vols have the number one overall player in the country according to ESPN, Offensive Tackle Trey Smith.
“Initially size was a concern, and while he still needs to add some more mass, he has made noticeable strides in developing his frame over the past year and doing so with quality weight.
He needs to continue to refine his technique, but Smith has shown he is a big athlete with good flexibility with a tenacious style of play. With the ability to play tackle or guard, he can offer the Volunteers’ offensive line some coveted versatility and is a strong candidate to be a quick contributor.”
ESPN and Rivals have the Vols with the current tenth best recruiting class in the country, 247 has Tennessee at eleventh.
Tennessee commits Maleik Gray (90), Ty Chandler (101), Eric Crosby (226) and LaTrell Bumphus (263) all ranked inside the ESPN300.
