I think all of our hearts skipped a beat when we heard Boom Williams suffered a minor injury early in fall camp, but fortunately, he’s recovered and ready to roll heading into the season opener. On today’s SEC Coaches Teleconference, Kyle Tucker asked Mark Stoops about Boom, and I think you’ll like his response.
“He’s been 100% full go, he’s looked good,” Stoops said. “He’s really had a solid training camp with the exception of the minor injury that set him back for a few days. Outside of that, he’s been really good.”
Stoops said he’s pleased with the depth at running back right now, especially since all of his guys are currently healthy. (Knock on wood.) That’s really awesome, but let’s get back to Boom…
“Boom has really looked good, he’s been very explosive and just making progress like you would expect from a true freshman going into his sophomore year. So we’re happy with the progress and looking forward to seeing him get out there Saturday and hopefully rip off some big runs.”
