Kenny Hill likely transferring to TCU
Remember Kenny Hill? The Texas A&M sophomore was billed as the next Johnny Manziel after he threw for more than 500 yards and three touchdowns in a win over South Carolina to kick off the 2014 season. Now, the man they nicknamed “Kenny Trill” is reportedly leaving College Station.
According to ESPN’s Travis Haney, Hill has asked for his release from Texas A&M and is likely transferring to TCU. The Aggies are also expected to sign dual-threat quarterback Kyler Hill, one of the top prospects in the Class of 2015.
After throwing 11 touchdowns and no interceptions through the first three weeks of the season, Hill started to look mediocre. Nicknames like “Trill” and “Kenny Football” quickly wore off when the Aggies lost three straight games to SEC opponents, and Hill was replaced by freshman quarterback Kyle Allen in November.
Judging by the way this player reacted when he was asked about Manziel after Hill’s Texas A&M debut, it’s safe to say the Aggies never imagined Hill wouldn’t even be a part of their team in 2015.
