Trey Baldwin will transfer elsewhere after one season at Mizzou.
Missouri Tigers linebacker Trey Baldwin announced Thursday afternoon on Twitter that he’ll be transferring out of the Mizzou football program. Baldwin departs after just one season with the Tigers, having played briefly as a true freshman in 2016.
Baldwin, a 6-foot-2, 235-pounder from Houston, Texas, played in three games last season and did not accrue any statistics. Coming out of high school, he was ranked as a three-star prospect by Scout.com and ESPN and a two-star prospect by Rivals. He enrolled early at Mizzou last spring, but it obviously didn’t give him too much of an advantage, as true freshman Cale Garrett and converted defensive back TJ Warren played ahead of him at linebacker when the Tigers’ depth at the position thinned out.
Head coach Barry Odom also told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch‘s Dave Matter that defensive end Jordan Harold will receive a scholarship in 2017 after playing extensively as a walk-on in 2016. That’s a major accomplishment for the St. Louis native, who gave up a full scholarship at Division II Northwest Missouri State and transferred to Mizzou to achieve his goal of playing at the Division I level.
In addition, junior college transfer Rashad Brandon, a three-star defensive tackle who committed to Mizzou last December, has enrolled at MU according to Matter.
