Police said that a call was made at 12:18 p.m. and they found Jake Ehlinger in the 1200 block of West 22nd Street. Authorities weren’t clear on how they found him, however, they said his death was not considered suspicious.
No cause of death or other details were released, authorities said.
Jake Ehlinger arrived at Texas back in 2019 as a walk-on with the program, but he hasn’t played the last two seasons. He was going to be a sophomore for the Longhorns during the 2021 college football season.
Jake’s older brother, Sam Ehlinger, was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft last Saturday. Jake’s face was accidentally shown on NFL Network when Sam was taken by the Colts.
“Good, good,” Sam told reporters after hearing the news. “Jake deserves all the screen time you can get.”
This is a developing story.
