And from watching guys bulk up in football, it's rare they gain significant weight (depends on their frame, but 20+ pounds on a 5'11 player is very significant) and maintain the athleticism they had at a lower size
I agree for the most part, but to gain 20 lbs in the summer from 16-17 years old is pretty good, even if he get's half that this summer he'll be on track.
