Tennessee’s freshman offensive lineman Trey Smith showed out in his first ever college game. The former number one overall recruit started at right guard and absolutely had himself a game. Smith not only looked like he belonged, but he looked dominant.
Here you can see him work in pass protection.
Can't teach fight. Tre Smith has it. Stats aggressive in pass pro. Pretty good body control to be that big. pic.twitter.com/PfepPPJh7Y— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) September 5, 2017
That’s outstanding work to stay on balance and to keep his feet under him. I love the active hands, too.
This was one of the highlights of the night, however. It was on the first drive of the night. Smith pulled around the corner and absolutely obliterated a poor defensive back.

Right in the earhole. That’s how you finish a block right there. Smith and the offensive line played pretty well against Georgia Tech, but Smith was the clear star. He looks like a tone-setter going forward.
