30 lbs of muscle! Guy was already a beast at 6'5 270. Sounds like he's destined for 3-tech, although if he's athletic enough i don't mind a 300lb 5-tech
Roh says watch out for Wormley
defensive end at that size. Hopefully he keeps the speed up too!
He might need that bulk if he ends up playing some 3-tech, which is also a possibility.
Mattison have a deeper rotation and be able to get more pressure without as many blitzes. Wormley is sounding like he is close to Branch size.
Sounds close to entire tree size to me.
^ I wish I could pos bang you more, totally had a LOL and then the "look" from the wife from that comment. Good Day Sir.
Death Roh camp son.
Is there a chance he dropped some weight from his injury and gained 30lbs from that weight and not the 270 he was listed at?
The roster from last year that is still up on MGoBlue.com lists him at 279 before his injury, so he probably lost some weight and is up to around 290ish now, but I wouldn't mind him at close to 300 pounds of pure muscle at 6'5".
chris wormley may be a great physical specimen but he is mostly a large bag of salt water just like the rest of us.
if he indeed has 300 pounds of muscle, his total body weight would likely exceed 600 pounds. the rest being: bone, cartilage, blood, skin, internal organs, etc.
A 600 lb 3-Tech!!!!! Woo-hooo!!
Huge in the picture that was posted before the Bowl Game with the Mash unit. It didn't look like bad weight either.
Who else is in this "Mash Unit?"
Bryant and someone else I think. They were pictured in the bowl uniformz without pads.
I just checked his twitter and it is his background pic.
It looks like the others are Antonio Poole and Kaleb Ringer.
Flying food particles can land practically anywhere!
Hey, it worked for Jerald Robinson
That must be one hell of a work out regimen...
Klinger, Radar, Hot Lips, you know... the whole gang.
EDIT: Damn, responded in the wrong spot!
I don't know how to embed, but Wormley looks HUGE in this picture.
Yup. I feel weird and creepy after looking at that.
...and this from "R Kelly."
Ahh touche. Well played sir.
Me too. The resemblance is uncanny.
Wow, did you see the knockers on Kortney Kardashian in that pic?
I give it 5 fakes out of 5. I'm sure he's running a 4.4 as well.
Good lord he's going to MTFO people.
30lbs of muscle in what 6 weeks? Is this even humanly possible?
What say you MgoPhysicians?
That's about 0.7 lbs a day. I'd say that's pretty much impossible if it was mostly muscle weight he was gaining.
that was probably since he's been on campus, much longer period of time. Especially once he tore the ACL, they typically focus on upper body strength and heavy lifting since he can't do much on his feet except rehab.
I suspect the tweet was worded imprecisely. It was presumably in camp that Roh praised Wormley for adding the 30 lbs. of muscle, not that the entire 30 lbs. was added in camp.
It could take 1 to 1.5 years to gain 30 legit pounds of muscle without "help".
Gaining 30 lbs of pure muscle in a whole year would be pretty unlikely, let alone 6 weeks. Chances are he gained 30 lbs of "mostly good" weight. I am a kinesiology major and from what I have read it is generally accepted that the average person can expect to gain 10 lbs of muscle in a year on a good program. Wormley is clearly not the average person and is benefitting from world class training and diet advice, so his expectations would be higher, but not 30 lbs in 6 weeks high. I would bet that 30 lbs is maybe ~20 lbs muscle and was gained in closer to 6-12 months. There is nothing wrong with putting on some weight from fat in a sport such as football so long as speed and power is maintained. This is beside the point though, dude is big and getting strong as he should be with Michigan's S&C staff.
Not only that, but 6-12 pounds of fat on a guy that size is hardly even noticeable, let alone problematic.
He really didn't look like a 300 pounder. He was walking around like normal so thats good.
I think he will be a big surprise for this next year. He has been an under the radar type guy. He was mostly a 3* when we thought he would be a 4*. He got injured and hasn't really been heard from much since. I'm excited to see what he can do.
His offer sheet tells the story. I wouldn't call him under the radar though. Jake Ryan was under the radar.
Dopler might have still picked him up
He was only a 3* to Rivals, and everyone else had him a 4. 247 had him as the #3 SDE in the country.
He was hardly under the radar. A lot of people had him touted as one of the top three players in Ohio going into his senior season.
