SI.com's Inside Read reported that Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill "often hung out socially" with former Aggies QB Johnny Manziel.
One recruiter said that the sophomore was a "spoiled brat." Hill was suspended for two games for violating team rules and was subsequently replaced by sudden wunderkind freshman Kyle Allen in late October. Inside Read wrote that on the football field, Hill has "had his struggles in three straight losses earlier this season, he is by all accounts a hard worker" and went on to write that sophomore needed to grow up "before his Johnny Football experience completely ruins him." This seems a little unfair to Manziel, given that Hill's problems have cropped up in a season where Johnny Football's sitting on an NFL bench. Nov 12 - 7:17 PM

Updating a previous item, Kate Hairopoulos cites sources close to Texas A&M sophomore Kenny Hill's family who say the QB will not be working with Sean Salisbury.

Salisbury said the opposite yesterday. "Salisbury and Ken Hill Sr., the quarterback’s father, had a recent discussion that was set up by a mutual friend... But no agreement was solidified, the source said," Hairopoulos writes. Do not expect Hill to receive outside help during his two game suspension.

Former NFL QB and media member Sean Salisbury will work with Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill.

Hill's family hired Salisbury to help Hill both on and off the field. Hill has completed the first of his two game suspension, which occurred after he was benched in favor of Kyle Allen, and will be sidelined against Auburn. The sophomore was suspended in the spring after being arrested for public intoxication. Of his role, Salisbury said he will "teach him how to approach the off-the-field stuff better. And to work with him on the field. Fix his mechanics, get him going."

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill has been suspended for two games for a violation of team rules.

We aren't sure if the act that caused the suspension took place before or after Kyle Allen won the starting job, but in either case it is Allen's show now. Hill started off very strong, but Jake Spavital and Kevin Sumlin were not very pleased with his play in three straight losses. Hill will miss games against Louisiana-Monroe and Auburn.

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill will not be the starting QB for Texas A&M against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday, according to CBS DFW.

Hill will be replaced by true freshman Kyle Allen. Hill came blazing out of the gates with a record-setting performance against South Carolina, but as of late, the team has hit the rocks. During A&M's current three-game losing streak, Hill has thrown for six touchdowns and six interceptions. In his last start, a blowout loss to Alabama, he threw for just 138 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.

Texas A&M OC Jake Spavital told reporters the team has re-opened their QB competition ahead of Saturday's game against Louisiana-Monroe.

The team will decide on their starter on Thursday. Sophomore Kenny Hill had started the school's first eight games of the season, but a three game losing streak likely plays a factor into this decision. During that span, Hill has thrown six touchdowns to six interceptions. If another starter is chosen it will likely be freshman Kyle Allen, who has received a handful of snaps this season in relief of Hill.
Oct 28 - 2:00 PM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 17-of-626attempts for 138 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's ugly loss to Alabama.

The Heisman hype was fun while it lasted. Hill was the talk of college football during A&M's 5-0 start, rolling out a fun nickname, accumulating huge numbers, and being spoken of as a frontrunner for the sport's most prestigious award. During the team's 0-3 skid, he's posted a 6/6 TD/INT ratio, with the low point coming against the Crimson Tide. The Aggies look broken at the moment.
Oct 18 - 10:53 PM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 42 of 53 attempts for 401 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the school's 35-20 loss to Ole Miss.

The box score looks great, but garbage time changed a 35-7 game into a 35-20 contest. Ole Miss likely has the best defense in the country, creating pressure without blitzing and flying to the football to prevent yards after the catch. A&M's defense, which looked very improved to start the season, is now showing cracks.
Oct 12 - 9:31 AM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 37 of 62 attempts for 365 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions in the school's 48-31 loss to Miss State.

Hill was not helped by his receivers, who dropped at least nine passes and potentially up to 15. The sophomore did make some glaring mistakes, throwing three interceptions to the same Mississippi State player. Hopefully he will learn and we are still excited to see the quick decision maker improve.
Oct 4 - 4:02 PM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 21 of 41 attempts for 386 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the school's 35-28 win over Arkansas.

He added 30 rushing yards. Hill displayed a few struggles in this game, but the Aggies continue to eat up yards in chunks thanks to his quick decision making and then take advantage of big plays caused by defensive miscues. Hill understands his receivers have a height advantage and uses it appropriately.
Sep 28 - 9:31 AM

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill completed 16-of-22 attempts for 265 yards and two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 58-6 win over SMU.

It was Hill's first interception of the season. He added two carries for 57 yards. Kenny Trill has now thrown for 1,359 yards with a 13/1 TD/INT ratio. It's no wonder that NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks ranked him No. 1 on his Heisman ballot coming into this weekend.
Sep 20 - 8:13 PM

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks thinks Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill "could walk out of the stadium with another 300-yard effort under his belt" versus SMU this weekend.

"If Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin decides to keep his foot on the gas in this contest, Hill could walk out of the stadium with another 300-yard effort under his belt," Brooks wrote. Even though the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Hill has left the last two games early, Hill enters Week 4 with 1,094 yards passing with 11 touchdowns and no interceptions. Brooks notes that Hill "should enjoy a banner day tossing the ball around the yard to an explosive set of pass-catchers that are dangerous in the open field."

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks currently ranks Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill as No. 1 on his Heisman ballot.

"Since bursting onto the scene with a scintillating performance against South Carolina in his debut, Hill has continued to dazzle with his pinpoint passing from the pocket," Brooks wrote. "The 6-foot-1, 215-pound sophomore has an unbelievable 11:0 touchdown-to-interception ratio in three games, which is impressive efficiency for a young passer. With the Aggies lighting up scoreboards, Hill is in line to make a run at the college football's top individual honor." Kenny Trill 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. One wonders how keen the Browns would have been to draft Johnny Manziel if they'd seen how easily his production was immediately replaced by an unheralded signal-caller who barely beat out a true freshman to start the opener.

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.
