There is nothing quite like the old college-football-weight-gain plan.

And it seems to have done wonders for Florida quarterback Will Grier, who’s reportedly taken the “freshman 15” to a new level. According to a story by, he’s bulked up to 215 pounds after weighing in at 172 as a freshman.

That’s a significant increase. Grier basically went from being a super middleweight to a heavyweight over the course of a year. You have to wonder what in the world he ate throughout his freshman year, because we all know it wasn’t the old peanut-butter-sandwich trick.

With his new size, Grier will likely have a good shot at dethroning sophomore quarterback Treon Harris for the starting gig. Last year, Harris threw for 1,019 yards and nine touchdowns while Grier was redshirted.

Maybe he brought peanut butter sandwiches to the game. Whatever the case may be, his father, Chad, is just happy he’s been stuffing his face like a bodybuilder.
