Tuesday Headlines: Hunter Dickinson Watch

Which school lands the biggest name in the transfer portal?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports


No decision today, and it’s unclear when one will come.

Since Hunter Dickinson entered the transfer portal at the end of March, the Kentucky Wildcats have been largely connected to the former Michigan Wolverines center.

Some seem to believe that he could indeed end up at Kentucky, and that decision could be made today. Dickinson is considered to be the best option in the transfer portal, so Kentucky landing him would be a huge hit.

Saying this, it sounds like Dickinson is putting out different things to different people to muddy the waters and truly leave everyone guessing when the decision is finally announced.

The former Wolverine played three seasons for Michigan, with the last two being incredibly productive. He averaged over 18 points per game in both seasons with 8.6 (2021) and 9 (2022) rebounds. Dickinson was also named to the All-Big Ten Second Team both seasons.

When Michigan played Kentucky in London last season, head coach John Calipari had an up-close look as to what Dickinson can do to the opposition. He put up 23 points and nine rebounds against UK in a narrow loss.

With Oscar Tshiebwe likely moving on from the program, Dickinson seems like the answer in the middle for Kentucky. The Wildcats do have 7-foot-1 freshman Aaron Bradshaw coming in, but there has been a lot of speculation that he will play power forward or even small forward at times.

In addition to Kentucky, Kansas, Villanova, Maryland, Duke, and Georgetown are all rumored to have the attention of Dickinson.

So, where do you expect him to go? Let us know in the poll below and in the comment section below.
