TAMU commit Hill talks K-State visit

By Damon Sayles

Three-star quarterback Kenny Hill (Southlake, Texas/Carroll) committed to Texas A&M in April and has been staunch with his pledge. But he’s also open to hearing what other schools have to say.

The big question: Should any outside visits be taken seriously?

Over the weekend, Hill traveled to Manhattan, Kan., and visited Kansas State. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound, dual-threat quarterback, while still committed to the Aggies, left Kansas State with a positive outlook on the program and the campus in general.

“It was fun. I liked the people and their program as a whole,” said Hill, who is being recruited to Kansas State by associate head coach Sean Snyder. “[Manhattan] was different, but I liked it.”

Hill has taken official visits to Kansas State (Jan. 18) and Baylor (Jan. 11), primarily to serve as reassurance that Texas A&M is where he wants to end up. The Kansas State trip made some Aggies fans ask questions, primarily because the Wildcats have flourished in head coach Bill Snyder’s offense with a dual-threat quarterback in Collin Klein.

Hill has been a definition of a dual-threat quarterback since taking over the starting duties for Carroll as a sophomore. As a senior, he threw for 3,369 yards, 27 touchdowns and only three interceptions, and he rushed for 1,421 yards and 33 touchdowns. Hill led the team in both rushing and passing statistics, as well as total touchdowns.

Hill, the No. 21 dual-threat quarterback in the country and the No. 87 player in Texas, will visit Texas A&M this weekend.
