Former TCU first-year linebacker Mike Freeze tried out for the baseball team at Tyler Junior College earlier last month.

His tryout was confirmed by both Tyler Junior College sophomore baseball player Justin Robinson and a university employee who requested to remain anonymous.

Freeze played in TCU’s season opener against Minnesota where he recorded seven total tackles, five of which were solo tackles, according to ESPN statistics.

Freeze has since taken a leave of absence from the TCU football team, and the TCU registrar’s office confirmed that Freeze is no longer a student at TCU.

Prior to attending TCU, Freeze played shortstop for Graham High School in Graham, Texas, where he earned All-State Honors as a designated hitter his junior year.

During his tryout with Tyler Junior College, Freeze played both shortstop and outfield, according to the anonymous source.

“Freeze’s baseball skills looked rusty but his arm strength was good and he swung the bat well,” said the source.

The source said Freeze is planning to transfer to the junior college and take eight-week classes in order to stay on track with his academics.

Tyler Junior College could not confirm if Freeze is enrolled, saying they were not able to release that information without the student’s permission.
