COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The wait is over. Texas A&M's starting quarterback has been named.

Coach Kevin Sumlin announced Saturday that sophomore Kenny Hill will be the starter when the Aggies take the field at South Carolina on Aug. 28.

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.
