Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin announced Saturday that sophomore Kenny Hill will start at quarterback for the Aggies when they play South Carolina on Aug. 28th, Per ESPN:

Hill beat out true freshman Kyle Allen in an offseason competition to become the heir apparent to Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. Hill, a product of Southlake (Texas) Carroll High, played four games in a reserve role last season, completing 16-of-22 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown. His start on Aug. 28 will be his first as an Aggie.

"[The] competition was close and that competition will continue to help us improve," Sumlin said in a statement released by the school. "I have talked to both quarterbacks as well as the team and we will prepare with Kenny getting the first-team reps."
Hill is 6-foot-1, 215-pound and is a true dual-threat quarterback.
