Jerrod Heard, who started a number of games at quarterback for Texas in 2015 but has since converted to wide receiver, will be Ehlinger's backup.
Buechele played the entire game against the Terps, completing 34/52 passes for 375 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while rushing for 21 yards and another score.
Ehlinger was ranked as the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback and No. 119 overall prospect in the 2017 recruiting class, according to 247sports Composite Rankings.Back to the Texas Longhorns Newsfeed
