Ex-Texas A&M QB Kenny Hill says he'll transfer to TCU
As expected, former Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill says he'll join the Horned Frogs.
If Kenny Hill's going to return to the Heisman candidate limelight he briefly occupied early in the 2014 season, he's going to do it -- as expected -- at TCU.
Hill told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Thursday that he will enroll at TCU on June 1 and join Gary Patterson's football program shortly thereafter. Hill has been widely expected to join the Horned Frogs since asking for his release from Texas A&M shortly after the conclusion of the 2014 season.
Hill will sit out the mandated transfer season in 2015 and have two seasons of eligibility remaining in 2016 -- at which point the Frogs' starting job will come open after the graduation of Trevone Boykin. The transfer has not yet been made official by TCU.
The Southlake, Texas, native exploded onto the national scene by throwing for a Texas A&M-record 511 yards in his first start, a nationally televised Thursday night opener against South Carolina. But the "Kenny Trill" bandwagon derailed almost as soon as it got rolling with the Aggies enduring a 59-0 loss at Alabama and Hill eventually being benched for freshman Kyle Allen.
In November, Hill was suspended two games for a violation of team rules.
