Kublanow Checks Out Auburn At Junior Day

Brandon Kublanow is expected to be one of the top offensive line prospects in Georgia for the 2012 football season.

Marietta, Ga.--One of Georgia's most promising offensive linemen for the 2013 football signee class made a trip to the Plains on Saturday for Auburn's first junior day of the year, which gives prospects the chance to tour the campus and talk with their potential college coaches.

For Walton High School offensive guard Brandon Kublanow, the conversation he had with offensive line coach Jeff Grimes was a productive one.

"I talked with Coach Grimes for about 30 or 45 minutes," he said. "It was good. He's a real laid-back guy."

The 6-foot-3, 283-pound lineman got to tour the campus and facilities and get the gist of what Auburn is about and what it had to offer.

"It was a really good visit," he said. "I really like the school and it's really nice there."

When considering a potential college to attend, Kublanow said there are certain things he weighs heavier than others. "Academics first and then the winning tradition, stability of the program," he pointed out.

Brandon Kublanow poses with a trophy for being named the top offensive lineman at a prospects camp last July.

Kublanow currently holds offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Duke. In addition to Auburn, the junior guard said he's also considering Alabama as well as other SEC and ACC schools.

Although he said he didn't necessarily grow up a fan of any particular school, he has previously stated that the in-state Georgia Bulldogs were the frontrunner to land his signature.

The Marietta, Ga., native said he's likely to make a decision before the start of his senior season.
