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. The fastest first step in college football I’ve ever witnessed was Percy Harvin. Harvin could get to top speed in a hurry; so can Williams. He finds the hole aided by great vision, and in a second, he’s gone.

Cooper kept the love flowing yesterday when he predicted Boom will be one of ten 1,000-yard rushers in the SEC this season. If so, Boom would be UK’s first 1,000-yard rusher since Rafael Little in 2007. In fact, in the history of the program, UK has only had six players rush for 1,000+ yards: Sonny Collins (twice), George Adams, Mark Higgs, Moe Williams, Artose Pinner, and Little (twice).

Here comes the Boom. Let’s get ready with some highlights:

    “Boom” a secret? What has Cooper been sleeping under a rock? The once UGA commit was a high profile national recruit that just missed a 5 star rating. He is right, Williams will be one of the top RB in the SEC, which will make him one of the top backs in the country.

    Boom is definitely an exciting player. You know there’s the possibility he can bust loose at any time.

    Best smile in the SEC! Everything else is just vienna sausage. By the way, you need to put vienna in the fridge. Keep boom on the grill because he’s hot stuff.

    I know that the off season is the time for hopes and dreams and fairy tales, but I’m getting more jacked for football season by the day! Can’t wait to put it on the Gators and the Vols and the Tards! Bring on the air raid sirens!
