Texas A&M QB and former Southlake Carroll Dragon Kenny Hill has been cleared to transfer. Many including 247Sports believe he has his eye on TCU.

However, his father, Ken told FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman on Friday that a final decision on exactly where he will play next has yet to be determined.

"While Kenny is indeed planning on transferring, we have not committed to any school at this time," the elder Hill told Feldman via text. "We will begin meeting with schools on the 15th of January when the dead period is over. Any previous reports suggesting we are committed to any school is simply inaccurate." 

Those with Dragon Pride are well aware of the special skills, which Hill called on to lead the Dragons to the 2011 State Championship as a Junior.

A lot has happened since this summer when Texas A&M Head Coach Kevin Sumlin announced Hill, the 2012-2013 Gatorade Player of the Year, won thestarting role over the highly touted Freshman Kyle Allen.

After securing the starting job Hill wowed Aggie faithful and the nation throwing for a school record 554 yards as Texas A&M upset top ten South Carolina on the road. Garnering the nickname “Kenny Trill”, Hill immediately joined the Heisman conversation as the Aggies began the season 5-0. However, the Aggies lost three straight games in the middle of the season and Hill had seven turnovers in the losses, which culminated in a 59-0 defeat to Alabama.

To make matters worse, Hill was suspended for two games mid-season for violations of team rules. The suspension allowed Allen to take the reins as quarterback.  Allen and Sumlin never looked back while Hill failed to take another snap during remainder of the season.

Even in the shortened season Hill compiled an impressive 2,649 yards and 23 TDs and a 154.6 passer rating. The later ranking him 3rd amongst all SEC quarterbacks.

According to NCAA rules, no matter where Hill eventually lands, he will have to sit for a year on the bench for any FBS school. On the positive side, he has yet to use his redshirt season and thus has two years of eligibility remaining.
