Hunter Dickinson, the big man who formerly played for the University of Michigan for three seasons, has committed to the Kansas Jayhawks to play for head coach Bill Self after he entered the transfer portal. He picked Kansas over schools Georgetown, Kentucky, Maryland, Villanova, and Michigan (Kept the door open for a return). Dickinson is a top transfer in college basketball and now he will get an opportunity to play for the 2022 NCAA Champion Kansas Jayhawks.

The Fit

During Dickinson’s time at Michigan, he has earned All-Big Ten honors in his three years there, an Elite Eight appearance (losing to 11 seed UCLA by two), and a sweet 16 appearance in a year that many believed they did not deserve to make the NCAA tournament, sitting four games above .500 at 19-15. Dickinson during his time at Michigan in his final season averaged 18.5 points per game, nine rebounds per game and one-and-a-half assists per game while shooting 56 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from deep.

Now his role at Kansas is going to be different but unique in that he will not be tasked to be the best player on the court and the offense has to run through him. Envision a Dejuan Harris Jr to Hunter Dickinson pick-and-roll play. Talk about love at first sight, that’s it. He’s gonna be able to space the floor and post up with some of the best big men in the country, with Kansas going to the Maui Invitational, Uconn in the Big East Big 12 challenge, Kentucky in the Champions Classic (going up against All-American Oscar Tshiebwe), going to Bloomington to face a newly integrated Indiana team who lost Trayce Jackson Davis, Jalen Hood Schifino, and other role players including Logan Duncomb. On top of that West Virginia has totally reshaped their team as Bob Huggins brought in Jesse Edwards from Syracuse who averaged 14.5 points per game and 10 rebounds per game. On top of that he brought in Kerr Kriisa from Arizona, Jose Perez from Manhattan, RaeQuan Battle from Montana State, and Tre Mitchell. They also will have to deal with that fiesty Texas team that went to the Elite Eight led by Marcus Carr, and the Kansas State rival Wildcats who also went to the Elite Eight, but they did lose star guard Markquis Nowell. They did replace him recently with Tylor Perry from North Texas and Jerome Tang has built this team in the portal effectively. Dickinson will be a force with Kansas and a potential All-American candidate.
