5-Star OT Trey Smith Commits To Tennessee Volunteers


Five-star offensive tackle Trey Smith committed to Tennessee, giving the Volunteers 24 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


The decision has been made. The nation’s No. 4 offensive tackle and No. 22 overall player is on his way to Knoxville.

Trey Smith, from Jackson, Tennessee, committed to Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon, giving the Volunteers 24 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. Butch Jones’ team now ranks No. 7 in the class rankings.

“After careful thought, consideration and prayer daily, I’ll be committing to the University of Tennessee,” Smith said during a live announcement at the University School of Jackson.

Smith isn’t headed into Knoxville with a big head, though. He’s looking to get to work and progress his game. Smith acknowledged he needs to improve both his hand placement and footwork on the line of scrimmage.

The 5-star prospect also shared one of the recruiting pitches Jones used to help make Smith a Vol.

“Branding,” Smith said. “[The] one thing Coach Jones pushed on me was, ‘Build your brand.'”

And that brand will now be checkered orange and white.

Smith took his official visit to Tennessee on Dec. 2  and later received a visit from Alabama wide receivers coach Billy Napier.

On Monday, he was paid visits by multiple coaches, including Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. But it wasn’t enough to pull him from his home-state team.

At 6-foot-6, 300 lbs Smith is nasty and aggressive in the trenches. His pad level can get a little high at times, but he moves well and will fit nicely as a right tackle.
