SMU transfer Harry Froling picks Marquette

SMU transfer Harry Froling picks Marquette

Less than 24 hours after a two-day visit to Milwaukee, SMU transfer Harry Froling, a 6-foot-11, 260-pound freshman center, has decided to join the Marquette men's basketball program and will enroll for the spring semester, according to multiple reports and confirmed by the Journal Sentinel.

Froling, who announced his decision to leave SMU on Dec. 12, must sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules. He will be eligible to play for the Golden Eagles at the end of the 2017 fall semester and will be considered a sophomore. The situation is similar to that of Marquette senior Luke Fischer, who left Indiana after one semester then sat out the requisite year, practicing with the team before becoming eligible to play midway through the 2014-'15 season.

The program and facilities were unbelievable, and the knowledge and players-coaching staff was also a major draw card, Froling told Evan Daniels of scout.com Tuesday.

The strength and conditioning side of things was also leading edge. It is going to be a very hard and challenging experience and I believe that's what I need to take my game to the next level, no more just getting by the way I have for the last 18 years.

Marquette emerged as a possible destination for Froling relatively late in the process. While back home in Australia during the holidays, Froling told his hometown newspaper in Townsville, Queensland, that his decision was between Oregon State and Dayton.
