There had been some chatter that Ehlinger might return for another season because the 2020 campaign didn’t count towards eligibility.

I even said he should return because he’s molded and created for the college game. Instead, he’s headed to the NFL.

I honestly have no idea what kind of QB Ehlinger will be in the NFL. All I know for sure is that he’s a class act young man, and he’s a hell of a leader.

Guys like that tend to have solid careers in the NFL. They certainly don’t grow on trees. I’d love to have a guy like Ehlinger in my huddle.
