University of Texas football player Sam Ehlinger was found dead on Thursday, according to police officials in Austin, Texas. 

Ehlinger’s body was found off-campus after police officials received a call at 12:18 p.m, according to Brian Davis of Hookem.com. The police department did not list a cause of death, or any details on the incident, but did announce that his death will not be considered suspicious.

Ehlinger, a sophomore linebacker, is the younger brother of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who was drafted in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft after a four-year career at the University of Texas. After Sam Ehlinger was drafted, NFL Network mistakenly showed a picture of Jake Ehlinger’s face where Sam’s was supposed to be. 

“Jake deserves all the screen time you can get,” Sam said after the mistake.

Jake Ehlinger was a former walk-on, who didn’t see any playing time in his first two college seasons. He came to the University as a two-star prospect in 2019 out of Westlake High School, where his older brother also played.

Ehlinger was a two-time member of the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll in the fall of 2019 and the spring of 2020.
