Texas Tech Football | Chapter XII: Spring Weight Gains

We’re discussing who has gained the most weight over the course of the year?

Rather than sort this by number, I sorted it by weight gain just to make it a bit easier. I also copied the roster online and re-typed the old weight and then typed in the new weight in a new column.

As you’ll note, the biggest weight gainer was Lonzell Gilmore, who gained an amazing 33 pounds over the offseason, followed by some offensive linemen in Conner Dyer, Luke Heitshusen (a walk-on), Cody Wheeler, Madison Akamnonu, Terence Steele and Cole Collier. All of those offensive linemen were projectable and needed to add weight. They were better athletes than they were just being big guys that could block. You love to see guys like Akamnonu and Steele being at 300+ pounds.

Defensively, also love to see Kolin Hill add 15 pounds, which has helped transition himself to a defensive end position. Zach Barnes and Payton Hendrix added 11 pounds and D.J. Polite-Bray added 10, along with Jamile Johnson. Christian Taylor and Tevin Madison each added 9 pounds as did an already big Breiden Fehoko.

Would love your own thoughts on anyone who caught your attention.
