Wenyen Gabriel is hitting the gym this offseason, a different kind of gym.
Spending some time back home in Massachusetts, the Kentucky sophomore-to-be is doing a different kind of training this offseason. On top of his normal basketball regimen, Gabriel is training in the boxing ring.
First off, his length would be terrifying in a boxing match. How could anyone touch him? Second, that does not look like the Wenyen that started 23 games as a freshman. The once scrawny small forward looks twice the size he did a year ago.
As Sacha Killeya-Jones said, don’t sleep on Wenyen.
