Iqddhtnsecr2upruqles
Rivals250 offensive lineman Brandon Kublanow of Marietta (Ga.) Walton will be on the move a lot in the coming weeks. In fact, he'll pretty much be heading in every direction for visits.
"It's all pretty exciting," Kublanow said.
Next on the schedule: A visit to see the national champs.
"I'm going to Alabama this weekend," Kublanow said. "I'm also going to Clemson, and then I'll go to Vandy and Florida. And I might hit the triangle [in North Carolina]."
Alabama has yet to offer the 6-feet-3, 290-pound Kublanow.
"They're just saying they really like me," Kublanow said. "They want me to come visit. Coach [Nick] Saban visited when he made that little trip into Georgia. They wanted me to set up a visit and see the place."
Thus far, Kublanow has been to both Georgia and Georgia Tech.
"I thought they were both really nice," Kublanow said
All told, Kublanow has 10 offers, with Florida being the most recent to pull the trigger.
"They offered last Wednesday," Kublanow said. "Coach [Will] Muschamp is going to be personally recruiting me. I thought that was pretty cool."
According to Kublanow, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Vanderbilt are recruiting him the hardest. Of the schools that haven't offered, he thinks Alabama, Tennessee or Texas could be next to do so.Asked if he had any top schools at the moment, Kublanow replied, "I wouldn't say so. I have schools I like a lot, but I wouldn't make a top five or anything."
At Walton last season, Kublanow played guard for his state runnerup team. Most colleges are projecting him as either a guard or center. To Kublanow, there is no position preference.
"Whatever," he said, "gets me to play faster [in college]."
