Michigan athletics fans have had a whirlwind of a day. Just earlier this afternoon, Michigan football received the fantastic news that 5-star quarterback Jadyn Davis has committed to play for the Wolverines. Just hours later, Michigan basketball received shocking news as star junior center Hunter Dickinson has officially announced that he’ll be entering the transfer portal.

Dickinson will be playing elsewhere in 2023

On Friday afternoon, Michigan basketball’s star center Hunter Dickinson announced his intent to enter the transfer portal. For many fans of the Wolverines, this comes as a shocker as most expected him to either head to the NBA or come back for his senior season.

In 2023, Dickinson led the Wolverines in both points and rebounds per game with 18.5 and 9.0 respectively. He also led the team in blocks (1.8 per game), proving to be a brick wall on defense throughout his time wearing the maize and blue.

Throughout his career with Michigan, Dickinson recorded 1,617 points, 787 rebounds, 148 assists and 149 blocks over three seasons with the Wolverines.

While we don’t yet know what this means for Dickinson’s future in college basketball, it appears that unless coach Juwan Howard looks for a center in the transfer portal, freshman Tarris Reed Jr will likely be the Wolverines’ big-man into the future.
