Harry Froling's scouting report BWB
Basketball Without Borders scouting report on Harry Froling:
Harry Froling 6'9, Townsville, Australia, 1998
-Very skilled big man who can do a little bit of everything offensively
-Uses his strong frame to carve out deep post position. Has excellent footwork and soft touch on his jump-hook.
-Excellent shooter with legit range out to the 3-point line
-Can attack a closeout with very nice timing and footwork, will even mix in an occasional spin move
-Handles the ball in transition at times
-Has a strong feel for the game. Passes the ball extremely well. Really knows how to play
-Has good timing as a rebounder. Not afraid to mix things up on the glass. Crafty guy. Pushes off when refs aren't looking
-Physical player. Sets bruising screens
-Somewhat stuck between the power forward and center positions defensively
-Came into the camp looking very out of shape. Could easily stand to shed 15-20 pounds off his frame
-Does not have much lateral quickness. Will likely struggle to stay in front of most power forwards
-Does not have great height or length for a center. Doesn't have the explosiveness to make up for that.
-Doesn't block shots or get in the passing lanes due to his physical limitations.
-Will miss some easy looks at times due to his tendency for playing below the rim
Outlook: Australian big man named MVP of the camp after his team won the championship. Parents both played professionally. Committed to SMU (where both of his sisters play basketball). Has an old man's game with a very high skill level offensively. Not particularly athletic, but may be able to maximize his tools by getting into significantly better shape. Will be a very difficult offensive matchup at the college level playing the center position due to his high skill-level and excellent feel for the game. Will likely need to show he can guard power forwards to emerge as a legit NBA prospect in time.
