Johnny Manziel officially has a successor.

Kevin Sumlin named sophomore Kenny Hill Texas A&M's starting quarterback Saturday evening, ending a months-long battle between Hill and five-star early-enrollee freshman Kyle Allen.

“Competition was close and that competition will continue to help us improve," Sumlin said, per the Aggies' official Twitter feed. "I have talked to both quarterbacks as well as the team and we will prepare with Kenny getting the first-team reps."

Originally a four-star dual-threat prospect from Southlake, Texas, Hill played sparingly behind Manziel as a true freshman in 2013, appearing in five games and completing 16 of 22 passes for 8.3 yards an attempt with one touchdown.
