So far this season, four-star Marrietta (Ga.) Walton offensive lineman Brandon Kublanow has been to all three of Georgia's home football games. The No. 140 ranked player in the country has been committed to the Bulldogs since back in May, and hasn't wavered since.
But if high school teammate Tyren Jones, a four-star Alabama commit, has his way, Kublanow won't be spending every Saturday in Athens.
"He definitely wants me to go with him (for a visit to Alabama), but I'm trying to get him to come to Georgia, too," Kublanow said.

The 6-3, 289-pound center isn't sure when he will join Jones for a Crimson Tide game, but even if he does it will be more about supporting his teammate than shopping around.
"I really love being up in Athens," Kublanow said. "It's definitely a great place and we're building something special at Georgia."
When the two teammates aren't trying to sway each other in recruiting, they're focused on leading Walton to the playoffs.
Kublanow is playing on both offense and defense and said he's hoping his team can make a deep run in this year's playoffs. Walton's only loss came in a 49-17 blowout against Kennesaw (Ga.) North Cobb on Sept. 14.
"We kind of got shocked," Kublanow said. "We came out and had a bunch of turnovers and it really didn't go our way."
He's been more impressed with the great start of his future school.
"There's a really bright future ahead for Georgia football," Kublanow said. "They're a great team right now and that's how it should be when you have a program that's a big family and everyone wants to work for one another."
