Good morning BBN!

With the transfer portal filling up for both football and basketball, the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team got some good news on Thursday as the top player in the portal will be arriving on campus for a visit in the coming days.

That player is none other than Hunter Dickinson.

The two-time All-American decided to enter his name into the portal after a career in Ann Arbor for the Michigan Wolverines. It was first reported by David Sisk of Cats Illustrated of the visit happening.

The day continued, and some more wild news was released from Dickinson himself. Talking to the Barstool Roundball podcast, Dickinson revealed that John Calipari actually took a trip to Michigan this past Tuesday to meet with the talented big.

It appears things might be moving quite quickly in this recruitment for Dickinson. Could a commitment be around the corner?

It sure is shaping up that he could be the anchor for this talented roster coming to Lexington next season.

In the process, it became clear that Oscar Tshiebwe is looking more and more unlikely to return.

Meanwhile, it looks like CJ Fredrick is also trending toward an exit.
