Aussie star Harry Froling commits to SMU

Larry Brown and SMU added their second Australian prospect to their 2016 class, as Harry Froling has announced a pledge to the Mustangs.

Australian prospect Harry Froling verbally committed to Larry Brown and SMU on Monday, he told Scout. 

The commitment comes on the heels of a trip to the United States, where Froling officially visited IllinoisArizonaColorado and SMU. The Mustangs received the final visit on January 19th and 20th.

"One of the biggest reasons I chose SMU was the opportunity to build something," Froling told Scout. "Larry, [Tim Jackovich] and K.T. [Turner] have been doing a great job recruiting me, and the fans were amazing."

"The game was an awesome experience and I'm super excited to play for SMU and represent Dallas," he added. "I can't wait to feel the Moody magic love and pony up."

Froling has a strong connection to SMU, as he has two sisters play for their women's team. Froling also played with SMU signee Tom Wilson at the Centre of Excellence and on Australia's U17 team in the FIBA World Championships.

Over the summer, Froling played at the adidas Super 64 for Team LiVon and at the prestigious adidas Nations event in Los Angeles. He was also recently invited to participate in Basketball Without Borders over NBA All-Star weekend in Toronto. 

A 6-foot-10 post prospect, Froling has been evaluated as a four-star prospect. 

To go with Wilson, Froling joins three-star recruit and Texas native Dashawn McDowell to make up SMU's current three-man recruiting class.
