Kublanow alters plans after FSU, LSU offers

When four-star offensive lineman Brandon Kublanow of Marietta (Ga.) Walton recently set May 21 as the day he'd announce his commitment, he had a good idea which school he would pick.
"I was like 80 percent sure," Kublanow told Rivals.com.
On Monday evening, Kublanow said he was pushing back his announcement to a date that has yet to be determined. The reason: Two offers that he considers significant have come in during the past week.
One was from Florida State. The other, which arrived Monday, was from LSU. He now has more than 20 offers.
"I just need some more time, to make sure I visit everywhere," Kublanow said.
Clemson, Florida, Georgia and Georgia Tech are some of the schools thought to be heavily in the mix, but now the Seminoles and Tigers apparently have given Kublanow, a 6-feet-3, 290-pound U.S. Army All-American, something to think about. He said they haven't entered the game too late.
"I don't think so," Kublanow said. "I'm giving them a shot. It's pretty exciting. I definitely want to check them out. They're huge programs and I definitely want to see them."
FSU will get first crack at Kublanow.
"I think I'm going to FSU maybe next week," Kublanow said. "I don't know about LSU yet. My coach told me [about the offer]. They came by the school today. I don't know which coach it was, but he was huge. I'm guessing it was the offensive line coach."
According to Kublanow, who can play center or guard, a decision still could come sometime before summer.
"It may be after spring [practice]," Kublanow said. "I just need to see these last couple of places."
