Last week, Stanley “Boom” Williams became a historic commit for the University of Kentucky. Williams is the number one all-purpose back in the country and is a top 100 player nationally. His commitment was a watershed moment nationally as it served notice that Kentucky football has truly turned a corner. Our very own Jason Marcum was able to catch up with Boom recently and had some questions for him.
JASON: How long has Kentucky been recruiting you, and what made them stand out enough to get your commitment?
BOOM: They came on hard about 2 months now and the atmosphere and the family and love that they showed to me was good.
JASON: How did Neal Brown say he wants to use you in his offense, and will you be playing a lot of wide receiver?
BOOM: He just wants to get me in space and let me make plays and I will play a little bit of slot and receiver.
JASON: Describe what makes you stand out as a football player and a student-athlete, and what your strongest abilities on a football field are.
BOOM: Work ethic. I love to compete I work hard in the classroom as well on the field and I’m always positive no matter what the situation is. Strong abilities are speed vision elusiveness and the ability to read defenses whether if they blitz or not and catching the ball.
JASON: When do you plan on visiting Kentucky again, and will you try to graduate early and enroll in the spring?
BOOM: I will and on July 18.
JASON: Tell us about your high school team, your upcoming season, and what your expectations are.
BOOM: We are ready for the season to start so we can reach the our goal that we were really close to last year and look for a lot of big plays coming from Stanley Boom Williams and and the rest of the George Walton team.
JASON: How did you come up with the nickname “Boom”, and do you have anything else you want to say to the Big Blue Nation?
BOOM: Look out BBN BOOM is on the way!!!
