Perhaps they're sending a message to the older running backs on the roster. More likely, this kid Williams has earned this chance. He's a four star talent out of George Walton Academy over in Monroe that Kentucky offensive coordinator never really considered redshirting.
A four-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite, Stanley "Boom" Williams quickly silenced any talk of a possible redshirt season during his first preseason camp at Kentucky, though offensive coordinator Neal Brown declined to call him "Boom" until he earned the name on the field. In his second collegiate game, Williams scored on a 53-yard touchdown run. He briefly gave Kentucky the lead in overtime vs. Florida with a highlight-reel 25-yard touchdown catch-and-run in which he cut back across the entire width of the field. After the game, Brown finally acknowledged Williams had earned his "Boom" nickname.So at least as of this morning, sounds like we might see a motivated young running back going up against a defense eager to prove the Florida game was a fluke.
