Photos: Mike Krzyzewski Says 5-Star Freshman Brandon Ingram Has Gained 23 Pounds Since July

Duke freshman forward Brandon Ingram is immensely talented and freakishly athletic, but perhaps the biggest knock on the five-star recruit coming out of high school was his skinny frame. 

Ingram is listed at 6-foot-9, 190 pounds on Duke's website, but apparently just cracked the 190-pound threshold recently after adding more than 20 pounds since July. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski shared Ingram's development with beat writers today, saying the increased bulk could help his on-court versatility.

To compare Ingram's body transformation, here's a look at pictures from recent photo shoots compared to ones from the spring and summer. There is definitely a noticeable difference.
