Aussie intends to play college ball

Australia native Harry Froling intends to play college basketball in the United States. What schools have reached out already? Froling filled Scout in on his recruitment.

A long list of Australians have made their way to the United States to play college basketball and Harry Froling plans to join that long list.

“College basketball is definitely something I will be doing and I am really looking forward to the process and chance to go to a college while playing the sport I love,” Froling told Scout.

A 6-foot-9, 230-pound post player out of Australian Institute of Sport, Froling will certainly have plenty of collegiate options. On the court, Froling said his strength lies in his versatility and scoring ability.

“I'd describe myself as a versatile four that can pick and pop to three and also post up,” Froling said. “I enjoy scoring and getting after the boards along with creating and finding others. So in one word I'd same my game revolves around versatility.”

Froling said the next steps in his development center around his conditioning, finishing around the basket better and his defense.

Thus far, Froling has picked up interest from New Mexico, UNLV, LMU, Kansas State, Boise State, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Washington State and SMU. He said Boise State is the only school that has come to Australia to see him. He’s yet to take a college visit.

“I was hoping to get some visits in these Australia holidays around September,” Froling said.

“I've got a small idea in my head but I'm still undecided and haven't locked in any definite visits,” he added. “I'm open to new schools and would really like to start to decide what's best for me in terms of schools and visits.”

Froling will compete in the adidas Super 64 during the final July evaluation. He will then head to Los Angeles for adidas Nations.
