SMU forward Harry Froling to transfer


The SMU basketball program is set to lose one of its biggest pieces of the 2016 recruiting class over the weekend, with Australian forward Harry Froling set to transfer from the program.

Froling was a former four-star recruit and one of the top international recruits in the 2016 class.

The 6-foot-11 forward’s decision comes just ten games into the season.

Froling was buried on the SMU depth chart behind Duke transfer Semi Ojeleye and senior Ben Moore, so he was seeing limited playing time this season. He was averaging just 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game.

SMU now has just eight scholarship players on the roster.

There is no word on where Froling is looking to transfer or if he is even interested in moving to another program, but when he was out on the recruiting trail he also received offers from Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Wake Forest, Creighton, Clemson, and Wisconsin, among others.
