Four-star Georgia running back Stanley “Boom” Williams has decommitted from the University of Georgia and is now entertaining other offers, according to his high school coach. Kentucky offered Williams back in February, with Bradley Dale Peveto taking the lead in his recruitment. Williams is ranked the eighth best all-purpose back in the 2014 class and the 27th best player from the state of Georgia according to 247Sports, and is ranked a four-star prospect by 247 and Rivals. He’s not big–only listed at 5’8″ 189 lbs., but he had 207 carries for 1,948 yards and 24 touchdowns in his junior season. He’s got offers from Arizona, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, LSU, South Carolina, Notre Dame and Oregon.
In February, Williams talked to Cats Pause’s Josh Edwards about his offer from Kentucky. Here’s what he said about the Cats: “They have a lot of new things that are about to happen. Kentucky is about to be on the rise again with their new coach. I am definitely going to be watching them this year.” Williams said that UK’s rise on the recruiting scene, including the commitment of Denzel Ware, has put them on his radar: “It definitely lets you know that they are getting top 50 players and that there is actually something good about that school. I need to go check it out. It plays a big part in what I do and what I see.”
Williams says he hopes to visit Kentucky soon, and that he has already received a lot of love from UK fans on Twitter (his handle is @boom_that_guy). Watch him work:
