BOOM! Aussie 4* Sam Froling Commits To Creighton

The 6’11 215lb C/PF will team up with Jacob Epperson to wreak havoc down low.

NCAA Basketball: Nebraska at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Greg McDermott got another key player for his 2018 class with 6’11 big man Sam Froling committing to the Jays.

Froling had offers from Arizona, Maryland, and former Valley foe Wichita State. He’d recently gone on a “successful” visit to Creighton, followed by visits to Arizona and the dank pit of despair that is Wichita, Kansas.

Froling joins Marcus Zegarowski, a 6’1 point guard and younger brother of Michael Carter-Williams, and Christian Bishop, a 6’7 190lb small forward from Missouri.

Sam Froling also happens to be the brother of Marquette center Harry Froling, who’s played in 8 games this season for the Golden Eagles, scoring 2.5PPG and averaging 3.8 rebounds per game. Harry is also 6’11 and 250lbs, so that means something to someone, somewhere.

Here’s a mixtape video with obnoxious music:

Froling is from Canberra, Australia, which is the capital city of Australia. The city itself is bizarrely beautiful, with sprawling areas of green space and a population of ~403,000. It’s very warm in Canberra, as it has an oceanic climate, with average lows in winter sitting in the mid-30’s.

If you’ve got nickname ideas for the Froling/Epperson duo please send them via carrier pigeon to the CenturyLink Center. I’ll pick it up later.

Here are some of my ideas:

Aussie Boys

Knifey-Spoony

Coriolis Effect
