Most consider junior Boom Williams the best running back at Kentucky. But as of now, new offensive coordinator Eddie Gran is not one of them.
Williams missed spring practice due to an elbow injury and Gran made it clear that Williams has to show him what he can do when practice resumes in August.
“I think we are deep and have a lot of guys that are competing at running back,” Gran said. “I know nothing about Boom Williams, so right now the ones I am counting on are the ones I had this spring.
“Boom is rehabbing and doing everything he is supposed to do, so we will see. It will be wide open, but I like it because they are competing every day and they are trying to get on the field.”
But the message to Wlliams is clear — nothing is guaranteed to him when August practice starts.
