Jake Ehlinger is a second-year linebacker and has been with the Longhorns since 2019. He hasn’t seen any game action but has been a two-time member of the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

Sam Ehlinger was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday and when NFL Network’s broadcast showed a photo of Jake’s face in place of Sam’s, the rookie QB loved it.

“Good, good,” Sam said with a huge grin during his availability with reporters, per Yahoo Sports. “Jake deserves all the screen time you can get.”
