As of now, Brandon Kublanow is staying put at center.
Things could change, of course, whether injuries or performance-based reasons pop up. But after spending his junior season as a center, Kublanow will stay put to start spring practice.
"I can play anything they need me to play," Kublanow said. "Right now I’m playing center but if they need me to play guard like I did last year, I swung to guard, and I’m perfectly fine with that."
Kublanow started his college career as a guard before moving to center in 2015. Kublanow did play games against Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech at guard after Greg Pyke suffered a knee injury against Auburn. Hunter Long, who has graduated, played center in those two games.
During practice on Tuesday, Isaiah Wynn was practicing as a left guard and Dyshon Sims was the first-team right guard. Pyke was practicing at right tackle and Kendall Baker was at left tackle.
Of course, it’s a fluid situation that could change over spring practice.
"There are some in-depth conversations there," head coach Kirby Smart said. "What we basically do is identify a guy – is he a tackle only, is he a guard/center only, or can he go both ways and do both? Throughout the spring we’re going to work different groupings there. I think it’s important to cross train because we cannot anticipate injuries, and they ultimately will happen in the offensive line and the front. We’ve got to be ready and more prepared to handle those situations as they come up."
