Sophomore center Harry Froling will not return to Marquette for the 2018-‘19 season, per Ben Steele of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“We fully support Harry and want to thank him for his contributions to our program,” head coach Steve Wojciechowski said in a statement. “We wish him the best of luck as he explores the next steps in his career.”

Froling averaged 12.4 minutes and 2.8 points in 20 games with Marquette. He took on a decreased role toward the end of the season, not playing in five of the Golden Eagles’ last nine games. Wojo said it was a coach’s decision.

Froling started his collegiate career at SMU before transferring to Marquette last January. He averaged 4.3 points per game in 10 games with SMU.

The loss of Froling leaves Marquette with two open scholarship spots for 2018-’19. At least one player has left Marquette for non-graduation reasons in every year of the Wojo era. Shooting guard Haanif Cheatham, who left in November, was the most recent transfer before Froling.
