On the Trail: Oregon, UCLA, UNC host the elite of the elite

UNC, UCLA, and Oregon lead the way as they host the best of the best from the 2017 class; other visits from across the nation entailed in this week's On the Trail.

Things remain hectic as always this time of the year on the recruiting front where this weekend is nothing outside of the norm. Some of the top prospects from the 2017 class hit the trail in getting a glimpse at a possible home of theirs for the years ahead.
