BOOM! YAHTZEE! Stanley Williams commits to Kentucky!

BoomWilliams

We’ve been waiting all day for it and now it’s finally here. Four-star all-purpose back Stanley “Boom” Williams committed to Kentucky during his visit today. He’s the NUMBER ONE all-purpose back in the nation. Here’s what you know about Boom:

All-Purpose Back

5’8”, 186 lbs.
Bethlehem, GA (George Walton)
40 speed: 4.39 secs

Rivals: #96 overall, #1 All-Purpose Back, #9 in GA
Scout: #64 RB
24/7: #7 APB, #37 in GA
ESPN: 4-star, #16 RB, #18 in GA

Chose UK over: West Virginia and Clemson
Full offer list: Kentucky, West Virginia, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington State, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Wisconsin

Twitter: @boom_that_guy

Boom Williams (who might have the best nickname ever) decommitted from Georgia back in April, and started entertaining other offers, including one from the Cats. In his junior season, he had 207 carries for 1,948 yards and 24 touchdowns. He’s not only fast (4.39 40), but he can accelerate in the open field, is fearless, and patient enough to wait for opportunities.

Enough words, more highlights:

BOOM.

    crazy..if he can hang onto to these guys (i say that because football recruiting is weird and people jump) and continue to do this kind of recruiting over the next couple of years, UK will be competitive. So glad someone doesnt give excuses and just gets it done.

    Wow, a 4.39 40 time.

    And when’s the last time a player committed to Georgia, decommitted, then committed to UK? Never?

    The state of Georgia is a gold mine of great players, second only to Florida in the SEC. (Well, maybe third now that Texas is included as an SEC state). I’d love to establish a strong recruiting base in Georgia. Getting Williams and Tucker is a great start.

    Stoops is doing too much! This is crazy! I always wondered why we couldn’t recruit the SEC. I can’t wait for football season! I’m lovin it

    woohoo stoops. tearing it up. however, on the 247 recruiting site, there are at 15 teams with a higher average, but still stoops is doing some great work.

    Question, which site usually has the most accurate football ranking?



  26. Watch out

    More talent on the way. Watch out for another 2018 prospect in Lexington kentucky playing in fayette county. You will notice the person when you see him.

    This should be Boom’s Intro. Also when he has a big hit the whole crowd should go silent for a second or two and then yell BOOM!

    Rivals is the best for ratings and rankings. 247 Sports is the best for profiles and information in the profiles. 247 Sports Ratings? Not as good as Rivals.

    A lot of people love scout for some reason.. I think scout is terrible though. 24/7 = 16, rivals = #1 APB…. Scout = #64 RB… Aka scout is terrible at football ratings but what can u expect from a site that rated Randall Cobb as a 2* CB

    Love boom. Great get. Staff will use him all over the place. I still think Horton ends up as one of best backs ever at UK tho

    I like rivals maybe just a tad more than 247. at rivals, at least 17 teams had a higher average than our cats. stoops is tearing it up. woohoo.

    I have a lot of non-UK fans telling me UK will never compete in the SEC…I say 3-5 years from now people are going to wonder what happened in Lexington and how they became a school that’s relevant in football. Louisville should be nervous!

    Using wrong rating service, UK should have about 8, 4 Star players!

    Yahtzee is a game played with 5 dice. Various combinations of the dice yield a range of points. A yahtzee is the name of a throw of five of a kind. It’s a nice game to play at a camp site while you’re waiting for water to boil on a propane stove. I suspect that’s partly the reason it was chosen — recruiting is a sloooow sport to follow.

    You need to know, whilevWilliams is a good player his not going to UGA was not his decision. They just got Sony Michel and Nick Chubb who are 2 of the top 8 running backs in the country. This is a win win for both because they got power backs for the I and UK got all purpose speed for the spread.

    Every time I get on this board and see the athelets Stoops and Company are landing I am completely shocked!!
