Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 20-of-31 attempts for 300 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 38-10 win versus Rice.
By the standards he set in the school's first two games, this was a pedestrian effort. Kenny Trill had scoring strikes of 14, 13 and 48 yards. He has thrown for 1,094 yards through three games, becoming the first Aggie ever to throw for 1,000 yards in the first three games. Hill gave way to freshman Kyle Allen with about five minutes remaining. Sep 14 - 9:22 PM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 17-of-26 attempts for 283 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 73-3 thrashing of Lamar.

Another game, another dominant performance. Lamar probably didn't feel like it had a great chance of containing him after Hill completed 44-of-60 attempts for a school-record 511 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 1 victory over South Carolina. They didn't. "Kenny Trill" is firmly -- and shockingly -- near the front of the Heisman discussion after two games. Meanwhile, five-star early-enrollee freshman Kyle Allen came on in relief when the game got out of hand and completed 12-of-16 passes for 122 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. At this point, we wonder if Cedric Ogbuehi could throw for 300-plus yards a pop running Kevin Sumlin's offense.

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill wants to be known as "Kenny Trill."

After Hill completed 44-of-60 attempts for a school-record 511 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's shocking 52-28 upset win over South Carolina, many, including Johnny Manziel himself, began referring to the Aggies' new signal-caller as "Kenny Football." For those not familiar with the etymology of Trill, it's a word from rap culture that is a hybrid of true and real. Texas rapper Bun B calls himself Bun B Trill OG. In other Kenny-Hill-has-already-become-a-huge-star-after-just-one-game-news: Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin told the sophomore he can't take pictures with fans because "Johnny got in so much trouble over pictures."

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill showed "remarkable poise and accuracy on a variety of pro-style routes" in Thursday's win over South Carolina, observed CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Hill looked "like future All-American candidate" in completing 44-of-60 attempts for a school-record 511 yards and three touchdowns in a 52-28 win, wrote the analyst. The sophomore spread the ball around to 12 different receivers in the contest. Hill, a dual-threat former four-star recruit, beat out much-hyped five-star early-enrollee freshman Kyle Allen for the starting QB gig. He won't be giving it back.

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill went off against South Carolina, completing 44 of 60 attempts for 511 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 52-28 win.

Hill broke Johnny Manziel's single game school passing record along the way. The sophomore has not displayed the same rushing threat just yet, netting five yards, but Hill spread the targets out to every Aggie receiver. Texas A&M lost three first-round picks on offense, however, they still boast one of the best offensive lines in the country. Be prepared to hear a lot more about Kenny Hill.

Texas A&M named sophomore Kenny Hill starting quarterback.

Hill edged out much-hyped five-star early-enrollee freshman Kyle Allen. "Competition was close and that competition will continue to help us improve," Aggies' coach Kevin Sumlin said. "I have talked to both quarterbacks as well as the team and we will prepare with Kenny getting the first-team reps." Hill, a dual-threat former four-star recruit, completed 16-of-22 passes for an 8.3 yard average with one touchdown in limited action last year as Johnny Manziel's understudy. Assuming he can hold off Allen all season, he's going to put up video game numbers in Sumlin's high-flying attack. A&M has one of the nation's deepest receiving corps, even with Mike Evans playing on Sundays.

Texas A&M junior C Mike Matthews revealed the team is expected to name a starting QB this week.

A&M offensive coordinator Jake Spavital said the team would like to name a starter "around Aug. 16, 17, or 18." prior to preseason camp kicking off. "Both young Aggie quarterbacks Kenny Hill and Kyle Allen have been very sharp... decision will be tough," Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman tweeted. "Hardly any misfires in two hours yesterday at practice." Hill was temporarily suspended back in March, but Kevin Sumlin has waived those kinds of off-field issues in order to pick the best player for the position.
Aug 13 - 10:38 AM

CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler reports that Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill's suspension "doesn't sound like [a] long-term absence."

Hill's indefinite suspension was announced shortly after his arrest for public intoxication on Friday. If Fowler's report is true, it speaks well for Hill's odds of starting on equal footing with Matt Joeckel and Kyle Allen in the race to become Johnny Manziel's heir. Hill's suspension, however, guarantees that he won't participate in spring practices.
Apr 3 - 5:37 PM

Texas A&M indefinitely suspended sophomore QB Kenny Hill following his public intoxication arrest on Friday.

This doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be suspended from game action. Until reinstated, Hill must abstain from all athletic activities. He's guaranteed to miss practice time this spring, which won't help his odds of beating out Matt Joeckel and Kyle Allen for Johnny Manziel's vacated starting QB gig.

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill was arrested for public intoxication on Friday.

Hill very well might be Johnny Manziel's heir apparent, but this won't help his cause. The 19-year-old was found passed out in a planter full of rocks and plants in front of a Southlake restaurant-bar. When asked, he told the officers that the president was "Bush" and his name was "Kennedy." He posted bail and was released. Hill is set to take on Matt Joeckel and freshman Kyle Allen in the QB competition.

Texas A&M will likely use two QBs during the first half of Saturday's game against Rice, according to ESPN's College Gameday.

Junior Matt Joeckel will draw the start, but freshman Kenny Hill should seem time later in the first half. This means the Aggies will use three quarterbacks throughout the game, with Johnny Manziel's suspension ending at halftime. Joeckel is more of a traditional pocket passer, while Hill has been known to stretch defenses with his feet.

Texas A&M freshman QB Kenny Hill is taking the majority of second team snaps during practice leading up to the season opener.

Hill and junior Matt Joeckel had been competing for the backup job, but it appears the true freshman will be the starter if anything happens between now and Saturday involving redshirt sophomore QB Johnny Manziel. Hill could be the Aggies starter after Manziel moves on.
