Georgia Mauler Kublanow is Taking it In

Marrietta (Ga.) Walton offensive lineman Brandon Kublanow is receiving a lot of interest from schools across the country. The big lineman, who just loves to dominate his opponent, has been making the rounds at several schools in the southeast. Now that he has seen the campuses of some of the schools that he is considering, Kublanow is making plans to narrow down his list.

"I haven't narrowed down my list yet but I will. I'll probably narrow it down within the next couple of weeks," Brandon Kublanow said.

After he narrows down his list, it may take some time for Kublanow to make a final decision.

"I'm not sure when I'll make a decision. I haven't really gotten that far yet," he said.

Kublanow currently has offers from Clemson, Duke, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, UNC, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and a few other schools, but not all of those schools are showing the talented lineman the same amount of interest.

"I'd say that Georgia, Florida, Clemson, UNC and Vandy are the schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now. I'm pretty interested in all of them," he said.

For Kublanow, his most recent trip was very interesting.

"My trip to UNC was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with the players, talk to the coaches, and tour around the campus," he said.

Although the skillful lineman has taken quite a few visits, he has not yet gotten a chance to watch any spring games. That will change in the very near future.

"I haven't been to any spring games but I'm going to Clemson's this weekend," he said.

Throughout the recruiting process, Kublanow has been able to form several new relationships.

"I have a pretty good relationship with most all of the coaches from the schools that are recruiting me the hardest. All of the schools are pretty much saying the same things right now," the 6-foot-3, 283-pound lineman said.

When he visits schools, Kublanow takes the time to evaluate all of the pros and cons.

"Academics and my relationship with the coaches will be some of the things I take into consideration when I make my decision," he said.

"I think being from Georgia could possibly impact my decision. I like Georgia a lot. It's a great campus and I like the coaching staff a lot," he added.

As he learns more about the football programs at the schools he is interested in, Kublanow also seeks to gain knowledge about the academic side of things.

"I really want to do accounting or financing so I'm really looking into business schools," he said.

Despite his concern for academics, the powerful lineman made it clear that he is definitely not afraid of being physical on the football field.

"I think my strength as a player is my aggressiveness and just being able to kill people. The coaches love that about me," Kublanow said.

His aggressive playing style has attracted the attention of many college coaches. As time goes on, Kublanow will be given a chance to showcase his physicality on many occasions. Although he is narrowing down his list soon, he will continue to gain interest from numerous schools.
