Kenny Hill is officially headed to TCU.
Hill, who set Texas A&M’s single-game record for passing yards in the Aggies’ season-opening win over South Carolina last year, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he’s set to enroll on June 1.
Reports emerged in January that TCU was Hill’s likely landing spot after he asked for his release from the Aggies’ program, and he told the Star-Telegram that he visited campus to watch the Horned Frogs’ practice in the spring.
Hill, who became known as “Kenny Trill,” burst onto the scene when he threw for 511 yards and three touchdowns to open the season. He played well throughout the non-conference slate as the Aggies started 5-0, but things went downhill when SEC play began.
Hill threw six interceptions in a three-game span against Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama – all losses – and then was suspended two games for violating team rules.
By the time he returned from his suspension, true freshman Kyle Allen took over as the team’s starter and held that role for the rest of the season.
Overall in 2014, his sophomore season, Hill threw for 2,649 yards, 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Hill also saw brief playing time as Johnny Manziel’s backup in 2013.
As a transfer, Hill has to sit out the 2015 season, but he could be in line to replace senior Trevone Boykin as the Horned Frogs’ starter in 2016.
