New Pac 12 Offer For Elite 2016 Prospect

We've been talking about Aberdeen (Wa.) LB/DE Joel Dublanko for a while now and things just continue to heat for the talented 2016 prospect. He spoke with recently and gave us an update on what's been happening including which Pac 12 school became his most recent offer...

"Things have been pretty good. My season ended so I have just been working out and working on things for next year," Dublanko told Dawgman after a recent workout. "I have offers from Mississippi State, Akron and Montana and I just got one recently from Washington State.

"They offered me before the break and I went to a game this year when they played Utah, so it was a good time and a good visit."

Dublanko also took unofficial visits to see several schools play games this season including USC, UCLA and Oregon and said that he's been talking quite a bit with Georgia and Tennessee as well.

As far as Washington, a school Dublanko has been interested in since he was little, he hasn't spoken to the new coaching staff yet, but said that will likely change in the coming weeks.

"I haven't talked to them yet, but the plan is for me to go up there either after the break or when they have finally gotten settled into things there," Dublanko added.

Dublanko said he's started to work out and itinerary but nothing is set in stone for which schools he will visit, but with offers from schools outside of the region and interest from schools across the country, his frequent flyer miles could see a huge boost.

"As far as camps, I'm thinking of hitting an Oregon camp and then a Stanford camp for their junior day and stuff like that," Dublanko said. "I'm not really sure what schools I will visit yet, but I know we are looking at taking some visits to different schools and seeing what they have to offer."

At 6'3? and weighing in at 225 pounds, Dublanko is a specimen for only being a sophomore. He's a dominant athlete with the skills to play on either side of the ball although most see him playing defense at the next level.

He totaled over 100 tackles for the Bobcats while also playing some fullback and even quarterback after their starter went down.
