With the fall recruiting period recently opening, the SMU coaching staff have made their priorities clear, looking to create an Australian pipeline, beginning with two of Australia's top class of 2016 athletes.

Head coach Larry Brown and his staff have been recruiting Froling for quite some time, with his sisters - Alicia and Keely - already a part of the women's squad - but word is that Tom Wilson is emerging as a legitimate target for SMU.

Wilson, a 6'4 guard out of Melbourne, was a key player for last year's Australian U17 Men's team, as well as this year's Australian U19 Men's team - captaining both squads.

We've also received word that Jankovich is expected to return to Australia in the near future to continue the recruitment of Wilson and Froling, but that's yet to be confirmed.
