We’re nearing that point in the summer where all the blogs start releasing their college football previews. Saturday Down South’s previews are already in full swing, and earlier this week, Jon Cooper posted an article calling UK running back Boom Williams “the SEC’s best kept secret”:
Although Williams would be categorized more as a scat back who can make people miss, his first step is what sets him apart.
