Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill has been suspended for the next two football games because of a violation of team rules and athletic department policies, university officials announced Saturday.
Hill, who played at Southlake Carroll, started the first eight games. Media outlets reported Friday that freshman Kyle Allen would start against Louisiana-Monroe.
Hill beat out Allen in fall camp and got off to a great start, throwing for a school-record 511 yards in the season opener and helping the Aggies to their perfect start. The sophomore’s 2,649 yards passing lead the Southeastern Conference and are sixth in the nation, but he has seven turnovers in the last three games combined.
Allen was one of the top quarterback prospects in the country after throwing for more than 8,000 yards and 86 touchdowns in his career at Desert Mountain high school in Scottsdale, Ariz. He has 264 yards passing and three touchdowns in four games this season.
