North Carolina Basketball: Kennedy Meeks Loses Nearly 50 Pounds (PHOTOS)
An ACC All-Freshman performer for North Carolina last season after averaging 7.6 PPG and 6.1 RPG, Kennedy Meeks could’ve been even more potent had he not been playing at a whopping 317 pounds. A playing weight that has dropped precipitously thus far this summer.
The 6-foot-9 Charlotte native has lost 47 pounds, leaving him at 270 pounds as he prepares for a bigger role with the Tar Heels in 2014-2015. Meeks isn’t done yet either, telling the Fayetteville Observer that his ideal weight would be 265 pounds.
“I don’t have a six-pack yet,” he joked with the Observer. “That’s my goal.”
