QB Kenny Hill commits to TAMU

4/28/2012

Commitment No. 15 for Texas A&M comes in the form of a state-champion signal-caller.

High three-star quarterback Kenny Hill (Southlake, Texas/Carroll) confirmed Saturday afternoon that he has verbally committed to play for Texas A&M. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound, dual-threat option led Carroll to a 16-0 season, the Texas Class 5A Division I state title and a No. 6 national ranking in the final Fab 50 poll.

Hill said he made the decision while visiting College Station, Texas, for A&M’s spring game on Saturday. He chose Texas A&M over offers from Missouri, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Missouri, Utah and Kansas State, in addition to in-state schools Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU, Houston. Schools such as Stanford, LSU and Oklahoma also showed interest.

Hill's Twitter handle, @KennyHill13, on Saturday read, "Offically committed to Texas A&M!!! #AggSwagg." He said the overall feeling of the A&M atmosphere proved to be the difference-maker, in addition to the new Aggies coaching staff, led by head coach Kevin Sumlin and his primary recruiting contact, receivers coach David Beaty.

“It feels great, a big weight off my shoulders,” said Hill, who now joins fellow quarterback, ESPN 150 player and Under Armour All-American Kohl Stewart, in the class.

The Aggies will receive a quarterback that compiled nearly 4,400 total yards and 49 touchdowns as a junior. Hill threw for 3,006 yards and 25 touchdown and rushed for 1,383 yards and 24 touchdowns. For his career, Hill has won 23 out of 24 games as a starter.

Hill is ranked No. 20 among dual-threat quarterbacks. He is ranked No. 57 among all players in Texas.
