#UM frosh DE Anthony Chickillo says he wants to add 25 pounds of muscle in off-season.

Chickillo says jokingly, “I’m going to get a tent and live in the weight room with (strength & conditioning coach Andreu Swasey)"

Thing is, a guy like Chick will probably get it done...as opposed to other guys who just talk **** and don't back it up.

Agreed. Chick is gonna be something special. You can just see how bad he wants it. Usually with that type of will (and his talent), the sky is the limit.

Kids like this are so important to have on a team. His leadership and work ethic wearing off on other guys is probably more important then what he will actually give us on the field (which will be a lot over the next 3 years).

damn 25 lbs?? how much does he weigh now?
I think he's around 260-265. 25 is a lot for an already pretty big kid and I don't think he'll reach that this offseason. But doesn't hurt to push for it and and up gaining like 15-20.

I have high hopes that he and Vernon will be a dynamic duo at DE next year

I don't think there is anyway he's 260 right now. I think guess he's between 240-250
Agree 100%. He's currently undersized right now which is why he's had an average season by Miami standards, IMHO. Which btw, is extraordinary for a true freshman.

What a beast of a kid. +1 Diego He is exactly the type of leader Golden needs to move his plan forward. Chick won't let anyone skip on workouts without letting them know about it to their face.

Was exactly what I was thinking. Kid is going to be an animal here before it's all said and done.

One thing I have noticed about Chickillo is he is always right up front when the D gets together, always right next to the coaches, always ready to get back on the field and knock somebody out. Guy is a few months out of high school and exhibits more natural leadership qualities than any of our upperclassmen. He is going to be an absolute star here. Perryman too.

I hate this idea. He's big enough already. Playing physical hasn't been a problem.

In my opinion, he should lose weight. He needs to improve his quickness. All of his sacks have been coverage sacks based on hustle. He's not a good pass rusher yet.

Bad, bad idea.

I'm sure our coaches are advising him on how much to gain. I wouldn't worry about it.

I don't know. I think he needs to get stronger, both in the upper and lower body. Forget this 25 lbs stuff, but I think he could use 10-15 good ones.
