DePaul offers 2018 forward Ben Fakira

Could another Aussie be coming to the Big East?

NCAA Basketball: DePaul at Providence Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

The Marquette Golden Eagles have Australian big man Harry Froling on their roster for this season.

The Creighton Bluejays have Australian big man Jacob Epperson on their roster for this season.

Could the DePaul Blue Demons be the next Big East squad to lure a big man from down under?

Maybe! On Tuesday the Blue Demons offered Ben Fakira, a 2018 big man from Australia. DePaul is just the second team to offer him after TCU a couple months back, but that will likely change as time goes on.

Fakira is a rising star in Australia, and first dunked a basketball when he was 14. Expect more and more video to come out on him as he continues to progress in Australia.
