AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas linebacker Jake Ehlinger, the younger brother of former Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger, has been found dead near the Austin campus.

Police say officers responded to a call shortly after noon Thursday. Police did not detail how they found him, but said the death is not considered suspicious.

No cause of death was immediately released. The 20-year-old had not played the last two seasons.

Sam Ehlinger was drafted last week by the Indianapolis Colts.

Their father, Ross, died in 2013 while competing in a San Francisco triathlon at age 46.
