LSU LB K’Lavon Chaisson does not see Sam Ehlinger as passing ‘threat’
LSU’s big game against Texas next week just got a whole lot more interesting.
Tigers linebacker K’Lavon Chaisson has given some bulletin-board material to the Longhorns. Chaisson said on Sunday that he doesn’t view Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger as a big passing threat but instead more of a dangerous runner.
K'Lavon Chaisson asked about seeing Sam Ehlinger again(they played vs each other in high school in the 6A State Title game in 2015)

Chaisson knows Ehlinger well from when his North Shore High School football team beat Ehlinger’s Westlake squad for the Texas state title in 2015. Ehlinger is a dual-threat QB who rushed for 16 touchdowns last season, but he also passed for 25 touchdowns and only five interceptions. That part of his game should not be overlooked.
Texas became a legit team when Ehlinger took over as the starter, yet people continue to downplay his abilities.
The two sides will have a chance to settle matters on Saturday in Austin, and Ehlinger will have the opportunity to show how good he is.
