It turned out, Kublanow said, that he spent the entire practice at the position. “It was definitely a good learning day,” the junior said.
Sophomore Isaiah Wynn, who has held the No. 1 center spot after the departure of starter David Andrews, moved to Kublanow’s starting left guard position for the practice. Wynn had a high snap go over Brice Ramsey’s head on G-Day Saturday and snaps were problematic for him earlier this spring as he adjusted to a new position after playing guard last year.
The 6-foot-3, 294-pound Kublanow said he’s not sure if Sale is grooming him if need be if Wynn went down or if Kublanow might be moved there.
“I’m not sure at this point,” he said. “I think they may move me, they may not. He knows I can play guard and if I can play center it will definitely help us out a lot.”
Senior Hunter Long has been working as the No. 2 center.
Kublanow hasn’t played center before getting some looks this spring but not in scrimmages. He said his own shotgun snaps “are “getting there. …In the future, I’ll just get it down and it will be muscle memory.”
He said he’ll spend time this summer working on it much more.
