The one-time heir apparent to Johnny Football has asked for his release from Texas A&M.
According to reports, QB Kenny Hill has decided it's in his best interest to transfer from College Station, Texas, and could end up at TCU.
At one point, Hill was expected to replace former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and looked great, winning his first five games of the 2014 season. In the season opener, Kenny "Trill" only threw for 511 yards and three touchdowns in a then-surprising win at South Carolina.
Hill threw for 1,745 yards and 17 touchdowns in the first five games of the season against just two interceptions. But after the Aggies lost to Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama in successive weeks, Hill, a sophomore, was replaced was suspended for violating team rules and didn't end up playing in the team's final five games.
Never miss a local story.
In Hill's place, freshman Kyle Allen filled in admirably and finished the season with 1,322 yards and 16 touchdowns against seven interceptions. Allen also completed 61.5 percent of his passes.
In eight games, Hill completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 2,649 yards and 23 touchdowns with eight interceptions.
As ESPN.com's Travis Haney pointed out, if Hill indeed transfers to TCU, the timing would be perfect for the Horned Frogs. Hill will need to sit out the 2016 season, which will make him eligible to replace graduating star quarterback Trevon Boykin in 2016.
