Ehlinger posted a photo of himself on Instagram, with the caption, “God always has a plan, and that plan is about to be a lot of fun.”
Ehlinger hurt his shoulder on Texas’ opening possession against Baylor on Saturday. Shane Buechele came in for him and helped lead the team to victory. Buechele would start against Oklahoma State if Ehlinger were not available.
