You see college football stories every year about the crazy meal plans and workouts that players undergo to lose weight. I don't think I've ever seen this one, though.

Check out the story of 2014 tight end Jeb Blazevich (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Christian), who bulked himself into the tight end weight class this spring and summer by simply eating. Eating a lot, apparently.

Blezevich was a middle-of-the-road wide receiver without many offers when spring football got under way. Today, after pigging out on chicken tenders and sandwiches, the rising junior is 6-foot-5, 240 pounds and holds offers from more than a dozen schools -- including powerhouses like LSU, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan and Virginia Tech.

So apparently that second (or third) helping isn't as bad as people make it out to be.
