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.

According to 247Sports.com, Texas A&M freshman WR Speedy sustained an injury to the MCL in his left knee during the win over Rice Saturday.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Noil is currently the Aggies’ third leading receiver with 12 receptions for 197 yards and a touchdown. In Noil's absence, he will be replaced by redshirt sophomore Edward Pope who has 10 receptions for 167 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that the Jaguars still have issues on the offensive line and could pair Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi with old teammate Luke Joeckel out in Jacksonville.

"Jacksonville drafted Luke Joeckel out of Texas A&M No. 2 overall two years ago, but the Jaguars still have issues on the offensive line, evidence by the 10 sacks they gave up against the Redskins in week two," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi was freshman at Texas A & M when Joeckel played for the Aggies, but even though Ogbuehi plays left tackle now, he has excelled at both right guard and right tackle for the Aggies. The Texas A & M prospect could easily take over the right tackle position for the Jaguars in 2015, if needed.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is 2.5 sacks away from tying Jadeveon Clowney's SEC freshman sack record of eight.

Sacks aren't everything, but Garrett already has 5.5 in the Aggies' revamped defense. "I didn't know he had this kind of pass rush ability in terms of his power, speed and these counter moves," said Texas A&M DC Mark Snyder. "It's pretty freakish... He can dip and rip, and bend the corner like I've never [seen]." Garrett was the defensive prize of A&M's 2014 class, and he is obviously already making his mark.

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.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Texas A&M senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "looked like a natural on the blind side in A&M's thrashing of South Carolina,"and ranks Ogbuehi as his No.2 prospect.

"He stood out at right guard and right tackle the past two seasons, but his long arms and nimble athleticism have always projected him best to left tackle. Ogbuehi looked like a natural on the blind side in A&M's thrashing of South Carolina," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound senior has outstanding size and athleticism, and Rang believes Ogbuehi "has more talent than former Aggies Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews" who were the second and sixth overall picks over the past two years.

The misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge against Texas A&M redshirt freshman wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones has been dropped.

College Station city attorneys dismissed the charge, which occurred last April, for lack of evidence. Seals-Jones has lived up to the promise placed on him thus far this season, catching eight passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns in two games. He redshirted last year after undergoing knee surgery.

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.
Sep 7 - 8:53 PM

Texas A&M freshman WR Speedy Noil caught four balls for 71 yards in Saturday's easy win over Lamar.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder now has nine receptions for 126 yards in his first two collegiate games. That production will go up as Noil becomes more comfortable with the offense, and Texas A&M shrinks its WR timeshare due to not blowing out every opponent (we think, anyway). In this game, for instance, 11 different receivers caught balls, with Noll's four receptions tying Edward Pope for team lead. Noil, RecruitingNation's No. 7 overall prospect, has a 45-inch vertical and is lightning fast. SEC defensive coordinators are already losing sleep thinking about how to defend Kenny Trill throwing to redshirt freshman Ricky Seals-Jones, senior Malcolme Kennedy and Noil.

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."

One NFC personnel member texted NFL media report Albert Breer that Texas A&M OC Jake Spavital "will be a head coach sooner rather than later."

"He has 'it' in spades," the NFL staffer added. Another NFL personnel man concurred after Breer tweeted the quote. Spavital is only 29-years-old, but obviously many NFL and college decision makers were impressed by the quick offensive turnaround he managed to produce with the Aggies losing Johnny Manziel, Mike Evans and Jake Matthews.

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 senior T Cedric Ogbuehi "played a large role" in South Carolina's inability to "mount any pass rush on [Kenny] Hill" on Thursday, observed CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"A boisterous crowd seemed to contribute to Ogbuehi getting an occasional late start," Rang wrote. "Rather than panic and lunge at his opponent, Ogbuehi showed off his rare skill set, accelerating while turning his shoulders to remain square to the pass rusher before extending his vine-like arms to latch on. Ogbuehi's agility and reach make him reliable in pass protection. He also showed quickness and agility in the running game and drove his assignment off the ball to clear the lane for A&M's first touchdown of the season, a 1-yard plunge off left tackle by Tra Carson." Thursday marked Ogbuehi's first career start at left tackle after he shifted to the blind side to replace Jake Matthews. On Saturday, the 6-foot-5, 305-pounder demonstrated "the same unique quickness and fluidity at left tackle that he had previously demonstrated at right tackle and guard," Rang wrote.

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.
