What exactly happens to your body after gaining so much muscle?

I am about 5’9″ and 170 pounds. I have gained about 20 lbs in the last 6 months. I know that it’s muscle weight because I’m on a D1 sports team. And I know initially gaining muscle makes you leaner but a lot of my clothes (esp jeans) don’t fit me much anymore. I know I’m not fat but I can’t help but wonder.

What exactly happens? Is this normal?

    As yr body tightens and muscles get lifted, you’re going to fit into things differently. And in the initial stages, if you had any fat, the muscles push them out before the fat disappears. Don’t know if you experienced this, but that is what happens. My suggestion is to try different cuts of clothes. You’re body has changed and 20lbs of muscle is a significant amount of mass.
