Washington, whom Dublanko has watched since his childhood, had Dublanko for a day of their Rising Stars Camp and he camped at all the schools he visited except USC, where he only toured the school, but didn't camp.
Dublanko had offers from Akron and Montana prior to the road trip but picked one up from Mississippi State while in Starkville.
"Coach (Geoff) Collins said they like me inside and that was a good camp and getting the offer from there was really nice," said Dublanko. "The other camps, I know I got on their radar too."
Dublanko said some of the schools he was visiting for the first time were certainly schools he could envision himself playing.
"There were a few I could see myself at like Mississippi State, Washington State, Tennessee and Georgia," said Dublanko. "I got to visit USC instead of camping there but I liked it and I liked UCLA a lot and worked with Coach Ulbrich at the camp and Coach (Jim) Mora said he liked my length as an outside linebacker."
Dublanko, who said he's 6-3, 225, heading into his junior year, has plans to do another road trip next summer.
This fall, Dublanko will play a number of positions for Aberdeen.
"I'm going to play running back, maybe some quarterback, because I'm the backup quarterback, linebacker and maybe some defensive end and safety," said Dublanko.
