Days ago, Ehlinger led the Longhorns into a 55-23 crushing of Colorado in the Alamo Bowl. Ehlinger did go down with a shoulder injury, which caused him to miss the entire second half.
While Ehlinger is a senior, the NCAA ruled that this season won’t count towards players’ collegiate eligibility. Thus, Ehlinger had the option to return.
Ehlinger’s draft stock will be worth monitoring as he’s not expected to garner interest in the early rounds of the draft.
