Several Texas Longhorns have already opted out of the remainder of the 2020 season.

Several Longhorn seniors also have an additional season of eligibility remaining after the NCAA awarded all athletes an extra year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What does that mean for senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger?

That part remains unclear, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“I’m just trying to enjoy every last minute of the relationships and the people that are around right now before looking forward,” Ehlinger told the Morning News earlier this week, after he was asked about opting out for the remainder of 2020, as several of his NFL-bound teammates opted to do. “I’ve been trying to do that in really every area of myself.”

So, we shall see, in other words. Don’t count it out, folks.

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • The Austin American-Statesman reports that Texas baseball’s Andre Duplantier, a utility player, will miss the 2021 season due to elbow surgery, and infielder Brenden Dixon has decided to transfer to a junior college. From the Statesman: “Last season, Dixon started nine times at second base for the Longhorns. In 31 at-bats, he gathered only two hits. His first collegiate knock, though, was a homer in a 4-0 win at Rice on Feb. 15. Duplantier led Texas with his three saves in 2020. Those saves were complemented by a 2.00 ERA, 13 strikeouts and nine innings of work. Slowed at the beginning of the season by a hamate bone injury, Duplantier was also picking up reps at third base when the season was halted. Duplantier’s younger brother, Jayden, is a member of UT’s 2022 recruiting class.”
  • A quick reminder to never pay attention to Colin Cowherd, no matter what he’s saying about the Longhorns.
