BEAVERTON, Ore. — Trey Smith returned to The Opening Finals without a whole lot to show people, ranking in as Scout's No. 2 offensive tackle in the nation and No. 1 in the South.
So, the University School of Jackson standout tried his hand at left guard and went up against some of the nation's elite defensive tackles.
"It proves I can play any position on the O-line," the No. 1-rated blocker in the Volunteer State's 2017 class told InsideTennessee.
Where Smith plays on the next level remains to be seen, but the Scout five-star definitely has his share of options. He narrowed that list of schools down to six Sunday — Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss and Tennessee.
"Just the coaching staff and the program," Smith said of why he included the Orange & White. "I think they're going to be a top-notch program pretty soon. So, I want to see what they're doing."
After four months of not having been on Rocky Top, the Jackson native plans to return to Knoxville in a "couple weeks."
