University of Texas linebacker Jake Ehlinger, the younger brother of former Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger, was found dead Thursday, Austin police officials said.
Police said they received a call Thursday afternoon and found Jake Ehlinger dead near campus. Authorities did not specify how they found him but did say his death is not considered suspicious.
No cause of death or other details were released.
Ehlinger, who arrived at Texas in 2019 after his high school playing career at Westlake High School in Austin, did not play the last two seasons.
Sam Ehlinger was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday. Jake’s face was accidentally shown on the NFL Network where a photo of Sam was supposed to be, and Sam loved it.
“Good, good,” Sam said with a huge grin during his availability with reporters. “Jake deserves all the screen time you can get.”
