Hunter Dickinson is arguably the biggest domino that the Michigan Wolverines and Juwan Howard are waiting to drop for the 2020 recruiting class and it appears a decision could be on the way any time now.
Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers sent out an update on Tuesday saying that Dickinson, one of the top center prospects in the country, could be making a decision any day and that his commitment was set to come this week.
“The plan was for five-star senior Hunter Dickinson to announce his college decision at some point this week. No official date yet but it will likely be soon,” Weingarten tweeted. “Michigan, Notre Dame, Duke and Florida State are the finalists.”
Dickinson is a four-star prospect and the 36th-ranked player in the 2020 class, per 247Sports’ composite rankings. A pair of Crystal Ball picks came in this morning for Dickinson to join the Wolverines from 247Sports’ Evan Daniels and The Michigan Insider’s Joshua Henschke. Michigan is seen as the heavy favorite in this recruiting battle.
“Big body who can occupy space. Not an explosive athlete. Good basketball IQ and positional defender and rebounder,” 247Sports’ profile reads. “Effective in the high/low game. Knows how to seal his man and can also deliver a pass from the high post. Has reliable jump hook with his dominant left hand. Can make a face-up midrange shot. Should end up being a second-round draft choice.”
Michigan has two commits currently in the 2020 cycle in five-star forward Isaiah Todd and four-star guard Zeb Jackson. Jackson signed with Michigan officially back in November, while Todd is waiting things out until the signing period in the spring to make it official.
Howard offered Dickinson back in June and he has been a priority for the Wolverines for months. Now, we just await his decision.
