Nine months ago, quarterback Kenny Hill was being touted as an early-season Heisman candidate after a few huge early-season performances for Texas A&M. Now, he's suiting up for a different Lone Star State power in another conference. Hill transferred to TCU after losing his job at A&M to freshman Kyle Allen. Hill had some issues while in College Station, but according to TCU head coach Gary Patterson, he's been a model citizen on the field and in the classroom so far as a Horned Frog.
The Texas A&M quarterback transfer enrolled on June 1, and TCU coach Gary Patterson told ESPN.com he’s made a good impression in his first three weeks on campus.
"He’s been awesome. Had a great spring coming over for practices and has been working really hard in the offseason and going to class," Patterson said. "I haven’t heard one bad thing. He’s been doing awesome."
Hill will sit out this season, which is just as well for TCU. Starting quarterback Trevone Boykin is considered a Heisman contender entering 2015. If Hill can recapture some of the "Kenny Trill" magic that he had during his explosive first month of the 2014 season, it would make for a great succession plan for TCU.
