Texas Longhorns QB Sam Ehlinger to Enter 2021 NFL Draft

Texas senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger is bypassing his extra year of eligibility to enter the 2021 NFL draft, he announced Sunday.

Sarkisian said on Saturday that he hoped to speak with Ehlinger in case the quarterback was open to returning in 2021.
