Aussie star Sam Froling garners high major interest

METAIRIE, La. -- 2018 Aussie forward Sam Froling is an intriguing post option that is on the college track.

Last year at Basketball Without Borders, Harry Froling was one of the better post prospects playing in camp. After a short stint at SMU, Froling is now at Marquette preparing to play at the break next season.

This year a familiar name hit the court at the New Orleans Pelicans practice facility. Sam Froling, the younger brother of Harry and a native of Australia, was among the most intriguing post prospects at the camp.

Froling, who has grown to 6-foot-9, is a skilled post player with quality hands and impressive touch. He played a confident game, went to the glass for rebounds and played hard on both ends of the floor.

“I’m a bit of a stretch four, at this camp I was playing more of a center but I can do it and I can play a bit of the three if I have to,” Froling said. “I like to play a bit on the perimeter, catch and shoot, go to the rim and rebound.”

Much like his older brother, the younger Froling told Scout that he wants to come to the United States for college.

“It’s a free education and it’s the exposure,” Froling said when asked about his desire to come to the U.S.

Thus far, Froling has heard from ArizonaColoradoLSUTCU and SMU. Froling said he hasn’t taken any college visits yet. Froling also noted that he wants to hear from Texas.
