SMU transfer Harry Froling is headed to Marquette.
The 6-foot-11 Australian told ESPN that he chose to play for coach Steve Wojciechowski after taking visits to both Marquette and Oregon State.
"The visit was great and the overall knowledge and past playing experience all of the coaches had was unbelievable," Froling told ESPN. "Most if not all had played pro or at high-level colleges, and I knew it was a place that was going to challenge me. By no means will it be easy, and being from Duke and with Coach being tutored by Coach K [Mike Krzyzewski], he knows what it takes. Another thing I loved about the staff was how honest they were. They didn't tell me what I wanted to hear."
Froling averaged 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds in 10 games this season. He will sit out and be eligible after the first semester next season.
SMU transfer Harry Froling will commit to Marquette and petition to the NCAA to be eligible for the entirety of the 2017-18 season, according to a report from FOX Sports.
Froling left SMU earlier this year, and NCAA rules would usually preclude him from playing until the second semester of next season. The Australia native will have two years of eligibility beyond next season.
The Golden Eagles should have an intriguing frontline of newcomers next season with Froling joining 2017 three-star recruits Theo John and Ike Eke in Milwaukee.
