The sophomore put on 40 pounds, increasing his playing weight to 275. He said he’d like to gain another five before the Sept. 3 season opener against Army. To reach his target weight, Wells said he averaged about 5,000 calories a day. He ate between four to six times a day – chicken, pasta, mashed potatoes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, anything that sticks.
"It was real hard, big meals," Wells said. "But I was just thinking about my teammates. Every time I didn’t feel like eating or I was too full, I just thought about the team. That’s what it’s all about, just helping the team."
This has been the most significant weight gain outside Rob McElhenney's sacrifice for the upcoming season of Always Sunny. Wells is the only 3-star prospect left from the 2009 class and curiously redshirted his freshman year and only played in 3 games last year. Frank Boenzi and Ron Newcomb will be waiting in the wings.
Left tackle madness
His backup, Tyler Loos is out for the season with an ACL, which brought Tyler Pitt back from the DL to provide depth. This isn't the greatest thing considering how many younger guys need to gain experience this year. Both Ryan Brown and Matt Krempel are candidates for the backup spot.
