ESPN Updates 2017 "ESPN 300" Football Recruiting Rankings

ESPN has updated its 2017 ESPN 300 college football recruits, and an uncommitted player headlines the list. Tennessee native Trey Smith, a five star offensive tackle according to ESPN, is No. 1 in their rankings. Interestingly, he is rated four stars by 247Sports, Rivals, and Scout, though these rankings are very much in flux as we get deeper into the 2017 recruiting cycle.
