DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Jake Ehlinger, a linebacker at the University of Texas, and brother of former Longhorn's quarterback Sam Ehlinger, was found dead Thursday, Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Per the report, police received a call just before 12:20 p.m. and found Ehlinger in the 1200 block of West 22nd Street. Officials do not suspect foul play but didn't specify how they found him or what might have led to his untimely death.

Ehlinger had been a member of the Longhorns the past two seasons after following his big brother to the 40 acres. Their mother Jena and father Ross, who passed away in 2013, were Texas graduates. Jake Ehlinger had yet to appear in any games for the program.

Sam Ehlinger was drafted by the Colts in the sixth round of last week's NFL Draft.
