SMU transfer Harry Froling will commit to Marquette and petition to the NCAA to be eligible for the entirety of the 2017-18 season, according to a report from FOX Sports.

Froling left SMU earlier this year, and NCAA rules would usually preclude him from playing until the second semester of next season. The Australia native will have two years of eligibility beyond next season.

The 6-foot-10 center averaged 14.6 minutes per game for the Mustangs, whose coach, Larry Brown, resigned last July, giving way to Tim Jankovich. Froling averaged 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game.

The Golden Eagles should have an intriguing frontline of newcomers next season with Froling joining 2017 three-star recruits Theo John and Ike Eke in Milwaukee.
