Did you guys think he was going to put on 10 lbs of lean muscle without putting on fat first? Of course he's not in playing shape right now, he's put on the weight so he could be in the shape he wants for the games that actually count. If he still looks like this at the season's beginning we can be concerned. Would you rather he show up to SL out of shape or show up next season just as skinny as last? Because you can't have both. He gained 20 lbs, a lot of which is fat, he knows this and he knows he'll cut the fat before the actual season so he'll probably actually have gained 5-10 lbs of lean muscle by the end of this
Obviously you never heard of carb cycling....you don't have to gain fat to gain muscle, this isn't 1990. He just got fat....and the last place you gain and lose fat is on your face. He is a fatty. There is no muscle separation in his physique whatsoever.
Use carbs for fuel and protein to build muscle. Get most of your carbs before and after your workout and feed your body mostly protein throughout the day. Keep your fat at around 50gm per day unless you are cutting then drop to 25gms per day. Drop the sodium, sweetners, and veggies, and any additive because they make you hold water, do 45mins of cardio. To maintain do 30mins of cardio 3-4 times per week. Get an extra 3500 calories a week with 100 200 200 800-1000 carb cycling and you will gain your muscle without the fat.
He needs a new trainer.
I've been on this old school high protein low carb diet for a while and I feel like I've plateau'd (some time ago). I've looked into carb cycling in the past but never got into it. I might give it a go
