Texas A&M suspends QB Kenny Hill following arrest


The race to be the replacement for Johnny Manziel as the quarterback of the Texas A&M Aggies took a bit of a hit on Friday with the news that one of the front runners, Kenny Hill, had been arrested on charges of public intoxication.

Now ESPN is reporting that because of the events that transpired early Friday morning, the school has suspended the signal caller for the time being.

Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hillhas been suspended indefinitely following his arrest early Friday morning.

According to reports, Hill was arrested on the charges after he was found in a restaurant establishment, passed out, and then had trouble answering the questions of the police officers, even going so far as to say the current President of the United States was Bush, and that his last name was Kennedy.

Hill played in five games last season as was supposed to be the stiffest competition to incoming freshman Kyle Allen, but that seems to be the least of his worries at this point, and of the Texas A&M program.
