Boom Williams has a New Number

The most explosive player to put on a uniform for Mark Stoops will be wearing a new one next year.  After wearing Randall Cobb’s #18 for his first two years of college, he’ll wear #5 as an upperclassman.  In the Media Guide, Boom said he wore #18 to “follow the legacy of Randall Cobb and Jacob Tamme.”

He did not explain his reasoning for the change on Twitter.  Without too many notable #5’s in Wildcat history, maybe he’s trying to create a legacy of his own.

He’s already marked off a place in the UK history books after opening New Commonwealth Stadium with this play.

Boom will begin his Junior season with 1,341 career rushing yards and 12 total touchdowns.
