Hunter Dickinson was the star of Juwan Howard’s last three Michigan basketball teams. The Wolverines heavily relied on Dickinson during their highs and lows, from winning Big Ten titles to being eliminated from the NIT. After Michigan’s 2022-23 season, the former Wolverine center entered the transfer portal and committed to Kansas. He is expected to finish his college career there while pursuing a Big 12 and national title. 247 Sports has ranked Dickinson as the top transfer portal addition in the Big 12 ahead of his first year with the Jayhawks.
Hunter Dickinson the No. 1 Big 12 transfer ahead of 2023-24 season
From the moment Hunter Dickinson joined Michigan basketball in the 2020-21 season, it was evident that the Wolverines had a special player in their true freshman center. Dickinson consistently earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors, leading the team to an outstanding season that culminated in an outright Big Ten title and an Elite Eight appearance.
Now, two seasons later, Dickinson is preparing for his debut in the Big 12 with Kansas. The decision to transfer was influenced by several factors, including the opportunity for much more NIL money. Nevertheless, it does not diminish the fact that Hunter Dickinson is one of the most talented players in college basketball and a crucial addition for the Jayhawks in the transfer portal, as they approach the 2023-24 season.
A big loss for the Wolverines, a huge gain for the Jayhawks
According to 247 Sports, no transfer addition in the Big 12, or even in the entire nation, is more significant than Hunter Dickinson joining Kansas. The former All-Big Ten and All-American selection is expected to make a substantial impact in his first year, much like he did with Michigan. Standing at an imposing 7-foot-1, Dickinson’s remarkable scoring and passing abilities make him a threat regardless of the conference he plays in.
As noted by 247 Sports, this transfer is a major coup for Kansas, while Michigan will need to find a way to move forward. The loss of Hunter Dickinson is significant for Juwan Howard and Michigan basketball, particularly heading into a critical upcoming season for the Maize and Blue following a disappointing campaign in 2022-23.
