QB Kenny Hill sticking with A&M commit

Otto Greule Jr

I missed this when it happened a few minutes ago and am just now catching up-- according to A&M's 247Sports site, 4* Southlake QB Kenny Hill will stick with his A&M commitment and sign with the Aggies next week. Baylor will have to move on to our next target in the 2013 class.

It seems we can finally put the various and sundry rumors to rest regarding QB Kenny Hill's recruitment-- he appears to be sticking with his commitment to A&M following an in-home visit with Aggie QB coach Jake Spavital this evening and will sign on the dotted line next week.

I'm disappointed in the news because I really like Kenny Hill, who is as talented a QB as we've seen in the state of Texas over the past few years. I'm not going to sugarcoat this loss at all; we really wanted to flip him to green and gold and couldn't get it done. Some will say it's not a huge loss because we didn't expect to get him, but I don't ascribe to that line of thinking, personally. Any potentially great player the schools around us get that we want is a loss, in my mind. That's not to say I'm going to fling myself from the nearest bridge or tear my clothes to shreds in anger, but I am disappointed.

We can argue all night about whether this is a good decision for Hill, but it's not entirely relevant. It's his decision and he made it according to his preferences. He seems every bit the smart, well-adjusted recruit we've been told he is, and I hope everything at A&M works out as well as he apparently believes it will. Well ... maybe not that well.
