Kublanow will begin camp as Georgia’s center

Brandon Kublanow will indeed be Georgia’s center, at least at the start of preseason practice.

The junior who started every game at left guard last year shifted to center at the end of spring practice, and the team likes what it has seen so far, head coach Mark Richt said.

“It makes good sense,” Richt said. “We’re not 100 percent sure that’s how it’s going to shake out. But that’s how we’re going to start out camp.”

Isaiah Wynn, the sophomore who was being groomed to be the center, will start out at left guard. Hunter Long, a fifth-year senior, remains the top backup center.

The center spot is the only opening on Georgia’s offensive line, but it’s a big one because it had been occupied by David Andrews, a three-year starter and team leader.

“We’re not settled (at center),” Richt said, before adding: “Kublanow is a guy that’s played for us a bunch. You want a guy there with some experience.”
