University of Alabama coaches Nick Saban and Kirby Smart got a first-hand look at 2013 offensive lineman Brandon Kublanow at his high school in Marietta, Ga., on Tuesday.

The two coaches stopped by Walton High to shake hands and get to know one of the state’s most sought after linemen. Kublanow, a 6-foot-3, 290-pound bulldozer has caught the eye of coaches after an impressive summer before his junior year. He said the Tide have a “great program” and a “really strong foundation.”

“It’s big-time football,” he said.
