Default 1994 F150 won't move

So I have been letting a friend borrow my truck for the past month or so, and it all of a sudden started having this issue.

The truck is a 1994 F150 XL 4.9 l6, 5spd.

The truck will start up and run just fine, but it won't move anywhere. What I mean by that, is you can start the car, put it in gear (any gear; 1-4, OD, or reverse), and pull the clutch out, and the truck won't move. you can also row it through any of the gears, while the truck is running, without the clutch pushed in, and it doesn't grind or anything.

Another weird bit to this puzzle, is the truck won't roll. It acts as though it's stuck in gear.

Anyone have any idea about what this could be? Initially, I thought clutch, but if that is destroyed, it should roll and act like it's in neutral, right? Also, that sounds odd that it would all of a sudden do this, when the clutch acted just fine the day before (according to my friend). Usually clutches will go bad over time, and you can experience them slipping before they totally give up.

This doesn't make sense. If it doesn't move when running then it wouldn't be in a gear, it would be in neutral. If it's in neutral then you should be able to push it.

Is this 4x4?

Are the brakes locked or E-brake engaged?

Either way, I think the transmission will need to come out.

Right?! At least I am not alone in thinking this is pretty weird.

The e-brake has never worked on this truck, and it can "roll" a bit back and forth (like, a few inches), as though it's in gear. It doesn't feel like the e-brake or brakes are stuck.

It is 2wd, no t-case.

I am almost starting to think the rear end shattered or something? I have no idea, I am grasping at straws at this point lol.

Disconnect the drive shaft, should just be 4 bolts, then see if it rolls.
