INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (KXAN) — The Indianapolis Colts have signed their entire 2021 draft class after two former Westlake High School teammates put pen to paper, the franchise announced.
Former Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger, Indianapolis’ sixth-round pick, and tight end Kylen Granson, the Colts’ fourth-round pick, signed their contracts Wednesday.
In a remarkable twist of fate, Granson and Ehlinger are teammates yet again after they played together at Westlake. They went their separate ways after their time with the Chaps, though. Ehlinger went on to become a four-year starter at Texas, while Granson initially signed with Rice as a receiver before transferring to SMU and changing positions to tight end.
Ehlinger finished his Texas career second all-time in total passing yards, total yards, total touchdowns, passing touchdowns, passing touchdowns and total touchdowns in one season.
It appears that Ehlinger is back in Indianapolis after spending time in Austin following the death of his younger brother, Jake, earlier this month.
