TCU named redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill the starter.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder staved off spirited challenger sophomore Foster Sawyer for the right to become Trevone Boykin's heir. Last seen getting benched and then run out of Texas A&M in 2014, Hill nonetheless posted incredible numbers while on the field. Before getting yanked that fall, he had thrown for 2,649 yards and 23 touchdowns on 66.7 percent passing. The man known as Kenny Trill ran the Horned Frogs’ scout team last year, so you can bet he's well-versed in TCU's schema. A four-star recruit and the son of former Texas Rangers' pitcher Ken Hill, Kenny Hill was the 2012 Texas Gatorade Player of the Year and 5A Offensive Player of the Year. Aug 25 - 7:52 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson expects a healthy competition between redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill and redshirt sophomore QB Foster Sawyer this August.

Predictably, Patterson declined to show his full hand at Big 12 Media Days. "I thought they [both] improved this spring," he said, later adding that he "thought they had a great summer." He was particularly impressed by Hill's conditioning and shape considering the fact that the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder sat out last season due to NCAA transfer regulations. When asked when he might name a starter, Patterson said, "I don't know. We will have to see."

Pro Football Focus' Jeff Dooley believes TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill "could be in store for a big 2016 campaign."

Kenny Trill is back! Last we saw our hero, in 2014, he had posted the No. 21 passing grade in the country for Texas A&M despite losing his job after eight games. "We know TCU’s passing offense is capable of producing big-time numbers after Trevone Boykin ranked seventh in overall QB grades and fourth in adjusted deep completion percentage last season," Dooley wrote. Trill has to beat out Foster Sawyer before he can try to replicate Boykin's exploits.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread ranked TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill as the No. 8 impact transfer for 2016.

Hill and Foster Sawyer are duking it out for the right to replace Trevone Boykin. Neither young man particularly impressed during the spring game, with Hill completing 9-of-20 passes for 75 yards and Foster somehow one-upping (one-downing?) him by completing 7-of-15 passes for 80 yards and an interception. HC Gary Patterson won't be naming a starter until August camp. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Hill blazed onto the scene in 2014 with the Aggies, but was eventually replaced by Kyle Allen that same season. Some day, a long, colorful book will be written about the last two years at Texas A&M. They have had themselves enough quarterback drama to last a lifetime.

TCU redshirt sophomore QB Kenny Hill will compete with Foster Sawyer for the 2016 starting job.

It seems like an eternity ago, but Kenny Trill was actually talked about as a Heisman contender as recently as October 2014. After his blazing start that year for Texas A&M, Mr. Trill started throwing interceptions and the Aggies yanked him for Kyle Allen, who they would go on to yank for Kyler Murray. All three, you may not be surprised to hear, have since left the program. Hill completed 67 percent of his passes with a 23/8 TD/INT ratio in 2014. Now he's front and center in the battle to replace Trevone Boykin. "Which version of Hill will we see with the Horned Frogs?" wonders ESPN's Andrea Adelson.

Former Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill made his transfer to TCU official.

Hill will begin classes on June 1. The former Aggie starter will sit out the 2015 season due to NCAA regulations, but could be the heir apparent to Trevone Boykin during his final season of collegiate play. Hill was off to a quick start last year, but was replaced as the starter and was suspended shortly afterward for two games.

Former Texas A&M sophomore Kenny Hill's father told Bruce Feldman the QB has not firmly decided on transferring to TCU just yet.

"We have not committed to any school at this time," Hill's father said. "We will begin meeting with schools on the 15th of January when the dead period is over. Any previous reports suggesting we are committed to any school is simply inaccurate." We still expect Hill to end up at TCU, and this is likely talk to satisfy NCAA regulations.

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kenny Hill is set to transfer to TCU, according to Travis Haney.

Hill recently asked for his release from A&M. Many jumped to conclusions on Hill during the early parts of the 2014 season, calling him a potential Heisman contender. He completed 67 percent of his passes with a 23:8 TD to INT ratio before being replaced by Kyle Allen. Hill was the subsequently suspended from the football team. Hill will likely have to sit out the 2015 season, but could take over the starting job for TCU when Trevone Boykin graduates.

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.

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.

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.
