Australian big man Harry Froling is half way through his college visit spree.
Froling, who went to Centre of Excellence and is now playing for the Townsville Crocodiles, started his trip to the United States in Champaign, Ill., where he visited Illinois on January 10th and 11th.
“Illinois had an unbelievable atmosphere and had a huge win versus Purdue,” Froling told Scout. “The players and coaches were unbelievable people and the community was amazing. [They’re] basketball crazy.”
After a day of travel, Froling began his official visit with Sean Miller and the Arizona Wildcats on the 13th. During the visit, Froling, a 6-foot-10, 230-pound big man, was able to watch Arizona against Washington.
“I went into Arizona ready to be shocked,” Froling said. “As soon as I got to Tucson the weather was great and it seemed just like home, where it's very similar. Watching the guys train and play, along with the schools facilities it is clear why they are an elite program, and the best of the best.”
“The people, players and coaches were also unbelievable,” he added. “Great people and a huge college town, the game was an amazing atmosphere.”
Now, Froling is on the move again.
Froling will have Friday off for travel and will begin his official visit at Colorado on Saturday. He’ll then close out the trip to the United States at SMU, where his sisters play, on the 19th and 20th.
Froling, who is one of the best international prospects expected to head to college in the United States next season, will then make his college choice shortly after he returns to Australia.
