Four-star offensive tackle Ryan Poles from Canandaigua (N.Y.) Academy has a top five and a slight leader.
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Rivals100 member has named a leader, but this race seems far from over. Currently, Ryan favors Tennessee slightly over Boston College. His next three are Ohio State, Syracuse and Maryland.
"For now I like Tennessee the best, but BC is not far behind. I loved the offensive line coach at BC when I was there for camp. Coach Magazu, he's the man. Tennessee is also a great school and they always play for the national championship."

Ryan has traveled to more than 10 schools over the past month. He wants to begin to eliminate schools so his choice will be easier when the time comes to make a decision.
"My dad and I have been all over this past month. We just wanted to visit a bunch of campuses and talk with the coaches. I think it really helped and will make it a bit easier when I have to make my choices for my five official visits."
Poles allowed only one sack in his sophomore and junior seasons and had more than 30 pancake blocks during his junior campaign.
