Freshman Harry Froling is transferring out of the SMU program, according to a report from ESPN.

Froling is a skilled, 6-foot-11 center from Australia that was considered a four-star prospect. Through ten games with the Mustangs, Froling was averaging 4.3 points and 3.2 boards in 16 minutes.

Froling is the third player to transfer out of the SMU program in the last two seasons. Sedrick Barefield transferred to Utah after just one semester on campus last season, and he was followed out by Keith Frazier, who left for North Texas in the wake of an academic scandal that got the Mustangs banned from the NCAA tournament.
