The last two weeks have been very kind to the Georgia Bulldogs on the college football recruiting trail, as UGA picked up two offensive line commitments in Brandon Kublanow and Josh Cardiello. Kublanow is a 6'2", 295 pound guard out of Marietta (Ga.) Walton High School. Cardiello is a 6'3", 285 pound center from Buford (Ga.) High School. Kublanow is a consensus four-star recruit, while Cardiello is rated three stars.

What makes Kublanow such an impressive recruit? Strength. Kublanow is extremely strong. He has a powerful punch and when he uses good technique, his leg drive is excellent as well. He is also rarely knocked off center, which speaks to his coordination and balance. Kublanow is not very tall, and he needs to continue to play low in order to negate his lack of height.

Cardiello is a different style of offensive lineman. He's a bit undersized, but uses his quickness to secure favorable angles. He most likely projects as a center, and will need to add strength. Cardiello does not have a huge frame, but with a good strength and conditioning program, he should be able to get up to 300 pounds, which will help him to not get bullied by all but the best nose guards in the SEC.

Georgia now sits at 17 commitments in the class of 2013 and three offensive line recruits.
