Trey Smith, the number one overall player in the ESPN 300, will be making his college announcement live during ESPNU’s College Football Daily on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 4 p.m. ET. The offensive tackle from University School of Jackson (Tenn.) has offers from more than 20 Division I programs, and is expected to choose between six schools: Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss and Tennessee.
“An outstanding combination of size, ability and toughness has helped elevate Trey Smith to the top spot in the ESPN 300,” said ESPN national recruiting analyst Craig Haubert. “The five-star prospect has made noticeable strides since his sophomore year in filling out his frame and adding quality size. In addition to measurables, Smith is also a flexible and agile big man with the tools to protect the edge in pass pro and generate lanes in the run game. Among the impressive traits the top tackle possesses is his tenacity, as he is a big man that plays with attitude and a demeanor to finish every play. Smith is a talented prospect at a premium position and demonstrates the ability to develop into a premier college tackle, with the ability to be a quick contributor once arriving on campus.”
Smith will play in the 10th annual Under Armour All-America game, which showcases the top senior high school football players from across the country. The game will be televised on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017, at 1 p.m. on ESPN.
