TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 17-of-32 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Saturday's 24-23 victory over Kansas.
Though Hill entered this game as Pro Football Focus' No. 3-graded Big 12 quarterback, we'd imagine he's running short on leash for his starting job. Playing against one of the FBS' worst defenses, Hill played his worst game of the season and perhaps even his life. To be fair, he did rally with a pair of fourth-quarter scoring drives that saved TCU's bacon, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jaelan Austin with 13:54 left to cut Kansas' lead to 23-21 and then the last-minute drive that set up the game-winning 34-yard Brandon Hatfield field goal. The Horned Frogs improved to 4-2 with the too-close-for-comfort win. Oct 8 - 4:28 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 26-of-44 passes for 449 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 52-46 loss to Oklahoma.

Hill started out hot, throwing three touchdown passes in the first quarter. The Horned Frogs jumped out to a 21-7 advantage heading into second, at which point, Oklahoma went off and TCU went quiet. The Sooners would outscore Trill and friends 42-3 over the next two quarters. And then it was time for Hill to shine once more. In the fourth, he would toss two more touchdowns, hitting Taj Williams for both scores. That work would draw TCU to within 49-46, but they would not score again in the game. Hill has now turned in three 400-yard passing showings. Despite his prolific yardage totals, Saturday was his first game with more than two touchdown passes.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 31-of-45 passes for 452 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 33-3 win over SMU.

The Horned Frogs ultimately pulled away for the win in the second half, but Hill and the offense struggled mightily in the first half. They hit the locker room holding a mere 6-3 advantage. Things improved from that point on, though, as Hill tossed a 75-yard touchdown pass to John Diarse just seconds into the third quarter and followed that up with a short two-yarder several minutes later. Through four games, Trill has passed for 1,487 yards with a 6/4 TD/INT ratio. He has also scored six rushing touchdowns.

TCU sports information director Mark Cohen said that redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was making a sign language gesture and not a throat-slash in Saturday's double-overtime loss to Arkansas.

Hill appeared to pull off ye olde throat slash after scoring the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's wild loss to Arkansas. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after the gesture. Per Cohen, this appears to just be a case of mistaken intent. Cohen told NBC's Newy Scruggs that the 6-foot-1, 215-pound redshirt junior was actually just making the sign language gesture for "rising kings."

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 36-of-56 passes for 377 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing for two scores in Saturday's 41-38 double-overtime loss to Arkansas.

Hill accumulated his passing yardage through volume more than efficiency. It was his rushing prowess that truly stood out in the tough defeat. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder led the Horned Frogs with 93 yards rushing on 15 carries. Both of his ground scores came in the fourth quarter, the latter of which pushed TCU to a 28-20 lead with just over two minutes remaining. Arkansas would push back and eventually secure the win in double-overtime. Through two games, Trill has already thrown for 816 yards. He is well on his way to an impressive offensive campaign.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 33-of-49 passes for 439 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing for 45 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 59-41 win over South Dakota State.

HC Gary Patterson is probably having a chat with his defense as we speak, but no such complaints about the offense. Hill transitioned into the Horned Frog attack well and opened up the game in the second half, when he accounted for four of his five total touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder could post huge numbers for fantasy owners in this system.
Sep 4 - 1:24 AM

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.

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.
Jan 25 - 4:53 PM

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.
Fri, Jan 9, 2015 09:27:00 AM'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.
