The Probe Ep. 42 - Hunter Dickinson



We spotlight Michigan freshman center and DeMatha alum Hunter Dickinson who has caught the attention of college basketball observers nationally. Although Dickinson had an accomplished high school/AAU career and was one of the top prospects in the country, many felt it would take Dickinson time to adjust to the college game, he’s proven them wrong. Dickinson has become one of the go to players For Michigan who currently sits atop the Big Ten standings and has the Wolverines eyeing a deep run in the tournament thanks to his inside presence on BOTH ends.

Overall Evaluation:

Dickinson is a unique talent and as impactful as he’s been, he hasn’t shown his full game at Michigan because it hasn’t been needed. Dickinson best skill is his passing and he can step outside and knock down midrange jumpers. Juwan has put Dickinson in a position thats best for the Wolverines and what will ultimately help him at the next level, be a big, dominant technician inside the paint. Dickinson is an underrated athlete with a very good inside and outside skill set which reminds me a lot of former all star Brad Miller due to his combination of size, inside and outside skill and underrated athleticism. Dickinson to me is a future NBA talent, it’s just a matter of will it be sooner or later.
