Former Texas A&M QB Kenny ‘Trill’ Hill told the Star-Telegram that he will enroll at TCU on June 1st. He’s reportedly been on the Horned Frogs campus to get an early jump on learning the playbook and watch some spring practice.
As a freshman Hill took over the starting job at A&M after Johnny Manziel took his talents to the NFL. Hill immediately turned heads by throwing for 511 yards and four touchdowns against South Carolina, and once again A&M had a Heisman candidate.
Then things fell apart. Hill began to struggle on and off the field. On the field he lost his early season form, and A&M lost three games in a row highlighted by a 59-0 loss to Alabama. Off the field Hill was suspended for two games following a violation of team rules, and as a result he was replaced as the starter by Kyle Allen.
Hill’s looking for a fresh start in Fort Worth. He may be excited to get to work, but he’ll have to sit out a year with NCAA transfer rules being what they are. It’s unlikely he’d get much playing time in 2015 anyway though, since TCU already boasts the best QB in the conference. He’ll have two years of eligibility left after sitting this season.
