Scout.com Analysis: Sam Ehlinger

Ehlinger is a consistent and productive quarterback in Texas HS football's largest class who projects to the high-major level. Best trait = accuracy. Consistently hits receivers in right spots, especially on short/intermediate routes. Great touch/accuracy on downfield patterns outside numbers. Quick release. Good velocity. Commands his offense as obvious alpha. Lacks ideal size. Athletic enough to be dangerous runner when play breaks down. - Gabe Brooks
