Hill made national headlines after throwing for 511 yards and 3 touchdowns on the road against South Carolina in the Aggies’ 2014 opener. He started the first eight games of the year, but was yanked after an embarrassing 59-0 loss to Alabama following inconsistent play and off the field issues.
After it became clear that Kevin Sumlin saw Kyle Allen as the future at quarterback, Hill opted to transfer to TCU. Hill was a four-star prospect from Southlake Carroll, just 25 miles down the road. He sat out 2015 due to transfer rules.
Hill beat out sophomore Foster Sawyer for the starting job. He will have an opportunity to face SEC competition once more – TCU plays Arkansas on Sept. 10.
